CPR and AED Course
On the 11th of September 2016, some of The Helping Hand’s staff attended the CPR and AED course run by the People’s Association at the Ponggol Vista Community Center, one of the centers that conduct this course and this is what we have learned;
- Principles of resuscitation, including chain of survival and importance of early defibrillation
- Understanding and performing the procedure and techniques for CPR
- The AED’s functions and procedure to perform on a casualty
- Practice and application of the recovery position
All of us felt that it was a morning well spend and and hope that we can put our new found skills to good use in the event of an emergency.
