    I wonder if they'll update it with the new social distancing requirements?

      "The free online CPR course….."

        I think he means how to perform CPR from a distance of 1.5 metres.

    Only the online component is free (and the practical is usually the important bit). How is it any different from the freely available CPR videos out there e.g. the ones even linked on the Poolwerx page?

    do we get a certificate at the end ?

    •  

      Without the practical component it would be useless for any workplace requirements.

      •  

        how much to add the practical component then?

        • +2 votes

          20% off an unknown value but face-to-face stuff would be unlikely to proceed in these turbulent times.

  •  

    No certificate unless you do the practical as well

        Exactly! Only a 1 of 3 success rate but certainly worth learning CPR.

        Edit: When paramedics attend and hook up their machine, you can actually see that CPR is keeping someone alive by beating their heart for them.

        … but not Bohemian Rhapsody :D

      The rate of compressions should be the same as the beats of those songs.

    I was watching a video of doctors and they were mentioning that CPR, if done correctly, is brutal on the patient

      Better to stay alive and have a few broken ribs.

    •  

      I feel like I don't have the strength to do it with enough pressure that their ribs will break. Or are ribs really easy to break?

        If you do it properly you’re supposed to be shoulders over your wrists, putting the entire weight of your torso / upper body into the patient’s chest. I’m fairly sure guidelines say it’s 1/3 the depth of the chest wall you should be pushing. And you’re doing that 100x a min (I think current guidelines is a little slower than that).

        At a general hospital, your general patient is old and frail. CPR will almost invariably break many ribs. Even in someone who is otherwise fit and healthy, I’ve seen some (generally non-displaced) rib fractures too.

          it’s 1/3 the depth of the chest wall you should be pushing

          It's 5cm

    •  

      About 30% of people end up with broken ribs or sternum. It's much higher in the elderly.

      •  

        Nah the sternum is in the same place, even in old people.

    This is good offer thanks, but as mentioned you need the Prac Assesment to validate the course for employment etc.

    Kinda useless without the cert :/

    • +1 vote

      You don't need the cert to know how to do CPR and have the potential to save a life.

    •  

      Just flash your cert. and watch 'em come back to life, hey?
