What to do until the Ambulance Arrives Community Course

International Paramedic College has a strong focus on community and we run a number of free CPR AED Defib and emergency management courses & programs in our local community.
“What to do until the Ambulance Arrives” is a 3.5  hour free public education session that we have developed which runs through a basic emergency management plan and includes CPR and AED use and awareness, the importance of managing major bleeding and what to do with an unconscious patient to protect their airway. This a a community based CPR and first aid session, not a replacement for fully accredited CPR and First Aid courses so you wont get a certificate but it is great opportunity to learn some emergency skills.for you and your family,

If your child stopped breathing today would you know what to do? Did you know that Fenton O’Leary and the team from the Children’s Hospital at Westmead  asked 348 parents and carers that question and.

  • Only half had received formal CPR training
  • Only 11% knew the correct rate for chest compressions and the correct ratio of compressions to breaths.
  • A surprising 8% had performed real CPR

They reported the major reason for not performing CPR was a lack of knowledge. We can help with that by completing this free course “What to do until the Ambulance arrives” or Alternatively you could organise a group sessions for New Mums and Parents Baby First Aid
