Practice makes perfect! Especially when it comes to rhythm recognition. Take a run at it and see how much you remember. You certainly can’t treat it if you can’t recognize it…
For the victim of cardiac arrest, keep those chest compressions FAST, HARD, and with MINIMAL interruptions. This vital BLS skill is going to make all the difference in the world along with “EARLY” defibrillation. “Early” means within 3-5 minutes, which is the first phase or the “electrical phase” of CPR and the best opportunity for effective defibrillation. When chest compressions are poor or absent, the chances of survival are poor. Do you remember the four links in the cardiac chain of survival????
A special thanks to our Dutch friends from Acaciaplein, a physical therapy clinic, because not only safety is important, but also posture and ergonomics during the training. During our classes and training, we keep on eye on how to use your lower back during different positions.
