Thanks to St John Ambulance
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:
Shortness of breath
Pains in the neck, Jaw, Arms, Shoulders, Throat, or Back
Stop, rest and make them comfortable - Phone 000 (or 112 on a mobile)
