  • It can be a real thrill to save a life, but how do you go about saving a life without some basic training?You don’t have to be a doctor or an ambulance officer to save a life, all you need are some basic CPRskills. CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation is a method used by doctors and ambulance officers but canalso be used by an everyday person who has had the proper training. If you are a pool owner and havechildren, then this basic skill could help to save the life of your child from drowning. As well as makingsure your pool is compliant, having CPR skills is also important.As a pool owner, it is important for pool inspections Brisbane to be carried out to ensure that your poolcomplies with the new pool safety regulations that came into effect on the 1st of December, 2010 withthe aim to lower the rate of accidental drowning in children. Along with making sure your pool andfencing is in compliance, enrolling in a CPR or first aid course is a great thing to do. Imagine how it wouldfeel to have the ability to save someone’s life, whether they are the victim of drowning or an accident orcardiac arrest. Having the ability to save a life is an amazing gift to have.So what is involved in cardiopulmonary resuscitation? Cardiopulmonary resuscitation involves chestcompressions at a rate of at least 100 per minute. This creates artificial circulation by manually pumpingthe blood through the heart. By also breathing into his or her mouth or using a device that pushes airinto their lungs, otherwise termed as artificial respiration, this method is also a great help for someonewho has stopped breathing. For those not trained in CPR, chest compressions only are recommended.The main purpose of CPR is to keep oxygenated blood partially flowing to the brain and heart as it maydelay tissue death and extend the window of opportunity to get the heart started through electric shocktreatment, better know as defibrillation which is needed to restore a viable pulse. Keeping the bloodflowing even partially aids in keeping the victim from suffering brain damage provided that CPR wascommenced quickly.So for the sake of your family, if you own a pool then it is important to take a course in CPR as well asmaking sure there is a CPR sign in the pool area where it can be seen. As well as making sure your pool isin compliance and obtaining a pool safety certificate, you can register your pool with the Pool SafetyRegister. All of things go a long way towards keeping your loved ones safe.http://www.poolinspectionsbrisbane.net.au
