TY Life Skills

Yesterday in our Life Skills module we learnt how to do CPR. It was a very interesting class. We learnt a valuable skill that could potentially save the lives of others. Firstly, we were given a dummy to work with. We then watched an instructional video.

1) The first step is to check if the victim is responsive. If not call 999.
2) Afterwards do chest compressions. Push down in the center of their chest 30 times.

3) Once that is done, use your index and middle finger to gently tilt the victims head upwards. Pinch their nose and blow into their mouth until you see their chest rise. If the victim is still unresponsive start again from step 2. Keep doing this until the ambulance arrives.
