Dental Modular Certificate Level 4 (CPR and Resuscitation)
All the staff enjoyed our biannual refresher course for Level 4 CPR... We were closed on Monday 1st May until 2.30pm for this staff training.
It is a skill we hope we never have to use, but practice makes perfect and if we have a cardiac event, anaphylaxis, or other medical emergency it's good to know we are prepared! The team at Emcare took us through our paces with the CPR refresher and a number of real life senarios- inclulding a severe angina attack, anaphylactic reaction, asthma attack with a patient who attended their appointment straight from hockey practice and even a drowning victim who was bought into the practice following an accident at a nearby swimming pool!!
We practiced our chest compressions with the CPR mannequins to the theme of "Staying Alive" by the BeeGees and it was great to reinforce our in house training with external examiners to critique our techniques!!
