HEALTHCARE COURSES

In 2013 the Resuscitation Council (UK), updated their Quality Standards for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Practice & Training document. It reemphasises the obligation that Healthcare Organisations have to providing a high-quality resuscitation service, and to ensure that staff are training and updated regularly and with appropriate frequency to a level of proficiency appropriate to each individuals expected role (RC(UK) 2013).

The precise number of cardiac arrests in the UK each year is uncertain, although it is thought to be up to 60,000. In England, the ambulance services attempt resuscitation in approximately 28,000 people each year, of whom less than 10% survive. The main aim of these standards is to improve care & outcomes for patients who are deteriorating or suffer a cardiorespiratory arrest in any healthcare setting.

BASIC LIFE SUPPORT (BLS) ADULT & CHILD

ABOUT

All staff working in a healthcare facility are required to have annual Basic Life Support training to ensure the skills learnt are refreshed and staff are updated to any changes. This course is run in a supportive, practical way and engaging to make learning enjoyable and effective. With all the latest training equipment used to enhance the learning experience.

The immediate initiation of bystander CPR can double or quadruple survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. Despite this compelling evidence, only 40% of victims receive bystander CPR in the UK (RC(UK)).

Defibrillation within 3–5 min of collapse can produce survival rates as high as 50–70%.This can be achieved through public access defibrillation, when a bystander uses a nearby AED to deliver the first shock.

Each minute of delay to defibrillation reduces the probability of survival to hospital discharge by 10%. In the UK, fewer than 2% of victims have an AED deployed before the ambulance arrives.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR

At all Healthcare facilities, all staff, clinical & non-clinical, are required to have CPR training. This course is ideal for your mandatory annual CPR Training requirements and can be tailored to your staffing and to the services you provide.

IMMEDIATE LIFE SUPPORT RC(UK)

ABOUT

The Resuscitation Council (UK) Immediate Life Support (ILS) course was  launched in 2002. It was developed in response to a demand from healthcare professionals who may have to act as first responders and treat patients in cardiac arrest until the arrival of a cardiac arrest team.

Each year, on average, 11,000 courses are held and 92,000 healthcare professionals are trained nationwide.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR

The ILS course is suitable for doctors, medical students, nurses, nursing students, midwives, healthcare providers such as physiotherapists, dentist and ambulance technicians. It may also be suitable for fire service technicians, police personnel and prison officers

COURSE CONTENT

ILS courses are run by ABCPR and we are approved and certified by the Resuscitation Council (UK). This ensures a uniformity of content and standard of the course.

The course programme consists of one lecture, skill stations and cardiac arrest simulations (i.e. CASTeach). The ILS course teaches the knowledge and skills to:

  • identify the causes and promote the prevention of cardiopulmonary arrest;
  • recognise and treat the deteriorating patient using the ABCDE approach;
  • undertake the skills of quality CPR and defibrillation (manual and /or AED) and simple airway manoeuvres;
  • utilise non-technical skills to facilitate initial leadership and effective team membership
