Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a life-saving technique that is useful in many emergency situations such as heart attack, near drowning, and cardiorespiratory arrest. Stockholm Medical Office recommends that everyone, layperson and medical staff, take a CPR training/course at regular intervals to keep their knowledge up to date.
It is much better to do something than to do nothing at all. If you’re afraid that your skills or abilities aren’t 100 percent complete, remember that the difference between doing something and doing nothing could be someone’s life.
In the course, you learn useful knowledge about how to give life-saving CPR in combination with handling a defibrillator. The training covers theoretical and practical aspects where you course participants learn CPR, how to act correctly in case of respiratory arrest and how to handle a defibrillator in the best way.
The majority of the time of the training is spent on practical training on each CPR manikin. Through the practical training, the participants learn and become sure how a situation should be treated in reality. In the course, stable lateral positions on each other are also practiced to feel how it feels with a real human being.
