|As a health-care professional, you are
expected to know how to perform basic lifesaving procedures in an
emergency. Such emergencies can occur anywhere on the streets, in your
home, in a restaurant, or in the workplace. In such an emergency, a
person's life may depend upon your knowledge of what to do and upon your
ability to do the procedure properly and quickly.
This course provides instruction which
will enable you to remove an obstruction from a casualty's airway,
restore breathing to a casualty who has stopped breathing, and restore
blood circulation to a casualty whose heart has stopped beating.
Instruction is provided for performing these procedures for an adult
casualty, a child, and an infant. Study and know these procedures
before you are faced with an emergency.
