Everyone can be a lifesaver
A family member is the first on the scene in most emergency situations. In fact many children are alive today because their parents knew how to perform CPR and responded quickly. For this reason alone, Royal Life Saving encourages everyone to learn CPR.
Having the skills to respond in an emergency situation can mean the difference between life and death.
Resuscitation or Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) involves stimulating the heart and breathing air into the lungs to preserve or restore life. Resuscitation involves establishing or maintaining an airway, breathing and circulation.
Royal Life Saving has a number of CPR related resources and courses available including a CPR chart that can be used near your backyard swimming pool and CPR courses that are run in a variety of locations across all States and Territories.
