Thanks to St John Ambulance

July 14, 2016

 

Mandurah Masters would like to thank Tony and Ron from St John Ambulance for presenting a valuable CPR and First Aid short course yesterday which they tailored to our needs as a Swimming Club.  The course was attended by 9 Mannas, most who regularly swim at Doddi's.  A special thanks to Ray for organising this event.

 

Important points covered include stroke and heart attack awareness, as well as using the Defib and doing CPR as part of a team.  View the video above for some entertaining instructions on giving CPR.

 

For a Stroke, the signs to look for are:

 

F   Face - Can the person smile, has their mouth or eyes drooped?

A   Arms - Can the person raise their arms?

S   Speech - Can the person speak clearly?

T   Time to Act! - Phone 000 (or 112 on a mobile)

 

For a Heart Attack, the signs to look for are:

 

  • Chest pains

  • Shortness of breath

  • Cold sweat

  • Pains in the neck, Jaw,  Arms, Shoulders, Throat, or Back

  • Feeling dizzy

  • Light headed

  •  

Stop, rest and make them comfortable - Phone 000 (or 112 on a mobile)
