This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to use specialised equipment in the provision of resuscitation in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines.
The course enables students to obtain advanced skills in automated external defibrillation, mechanical resuscitation and oxygen delivery and understand the fundamental principles that can be applied to save and preserve life in accordance with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines.
4 hours of face to face training.
Students must have the physical ability to provide resuscitation by kneeling on the floor and performing two (2) minutes of uninterrupted CPR on an adult and infant manikin.
Students under the age of 18 years will be required to provide a signed parental consent form prior to attending the course.
If you have a learning difficulty or other disability that makes it difficult for you to be assessed please notify the trainer, so another form of assessment may be used, and early assistance may be given.
There are no pre-requisites.
Multiple choice theory questions and simulated practical scenarios. It is a Training Package requirement of this course that you are physically capable of performing uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on a CPR manikin placed on the floor.
he candidate must show evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the job role. The demonstrated evidence is performed in line within state/territory regulations, first aid codes of practice, Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines and workplace procedures.
Followed DRSABCD in line with ARC guidelines, including:
performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface
performed at least 2 minutes of bag-valve-mask ventilation and at least 2 minutes of compression on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
responded appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
managed the unconscious breathing casualty
followed the prompts of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
followed single rescue procedure, including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
conducted a visual and verbal secondary survey assessment of the casualty
assessed vital signs (respirations, pulse and temperature)
responded to at least three simulated first aid scenarios contextualised to the candidate’s workplace/community setting, including:
demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
clearing the airway using a suction device
post-incident debrief and evaluation
provided an accurate verbal and written report of the incident
selected and inserted an oropharyngeal airway adjunct
administered oxygen to an unconscious/conscious casualty, including:
selected and prepared correct oxygen equipment
administered oxygen safely at correct flow rate
monitored and coordinated maintenance of resuscitation equipment
cleaning and decontamination
checking and diagnosis of faults
located and interpreted workplace policies and procedures
On successful completion, participants will receive a nationally recognised statement of attainment in HLTAID007 Provide Advanced Resuscitation, valid for twelve months.
Unique Student Identifier (USI)
Every student requires a Unique Student Identifier (USI) to obtain a certificate or qualification from their registered training organisation when studying a nationally recognised training course in Australia.
This includes studying at a public (e.g. TAFE) or private training organisation, completing an apprenticeship, certificate or diploma course.
A USI gives you access to an online account which keeps all your training records together, even if you move locations, change training organisations or undertake studies at different times in your life. For more information ask your training organisation or visit www.usi.gov.au.
