Swimming Made Safer with Lifeguards and CPR

Do you remember when you couldn’t wait to go to the pool every day of summer break? Or to the beach? I do. I remember idolizing the lifeguards not knowing how important their job really was. They were there to save lives with CPR and other training. Continue reading Lifeguards=Lifesavers with CPR

Are You Afraid to Save a Life by performing CPR?

Don’t be afraid to save a life!

MCR Medical hearbeat.
Safe a life. Learn CPR.

 

While researching the top concerns of performing CPR I came across an article in Huffington Post by Dr. Amer Aldeen. The following paragraph from that article states not only the fears we most often hear but also some statistics that you can’t but help take notice of: “If chest compressions are so easy to learn and effective, why does only one out of every three sudden cardiac arrest victims receive them? Why do only 5 percent of victims get treated with an automated external defibrillator? Quite simply, people are afraid. They are afraid of causing more harm than good, of being sued, of performing mouth-to-mouth ventilation, and of (literally) shocking someone.” Continue reading Are You Afraid to Save a Life by performing CPR?

Child Manikins are an Important Piece of Teaching CPR

Why adding child CPR manikins to your inventory is so important.

We all know that children and adults bodies are different in many ways, yet so many CPR instructors teach CPR for children on adult manikins. I’m guessing that it is a way to save some money but is it really enough of a savings to NOT practice CPR on a child size body? Since we have remarkable, life like, child manikins available, we support learning CPR on an infant, a child and an adult manikin.

In 2014 the leading cause of death in children 1-8 years old was unintentional injury. Drowning coming in as #2 in that section. I come across stories quite often where a child was saved from drowning with CPR. And with accidents as the leading cause of death in children, we need every tool available so that we give them the best chance for a good outcome. You know how they say “practice makes perfect’? This truly is the case with CPR. Continue reading Child Manikins are an Important Piece of Teaching CPR
