Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation [CPR] Training Empty
PostSubject: Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation [CPR] Training   Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation [CPR] Training EmptyThu 16 Oct 2014 - 10:29

I have been interviewed on the radio this morning regarding a Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation [CPR] course run locally by Radio York and British Red Cross which I attended some years ago.  Was asked if I had used any part of the course since - which I have.


We came across an accident in the very early hours one morning near Dundee.  A car was on the wide grass verge with a screaming female passenger and the driver was in total shock just staring into space. The car had been hit by a wagon the driver was hobbling down the road to see if they were still alive.  Had to call the emergency services and get the wagon driver into a warm vehicle because he was in shock. Colin disconnected the car battery as we couldn't gain access to the car.


Then there was the accident which occurred in front of me when waiting at a road junction to turn right. The injured man phoned me when he left hospital to thank me for helping him.


For quite some time I have been saying that CPR should be taught in schools as it is a life skill.  Well someone must have been listening, because today 12000 secondary school children in North Yorkshire are being taught CPR by the British Heart Foundation and Yorkshire Ambulance Services. If its a similar course as I attended you are shown how to put a person in the recovery position, how to check if they are in a coma or worse and what to do if you come across an accident of any sort.

Just think when the children go home tonight and show their families the CPR skill they have been taught today that is potentially 30000 people who know what to do in an emergency.


I have posted this elsewhere on the forum.
