Title: CPR Classes
Post by: cardojones on 09/10/2008 19:44:07
I recently took an online class from Spammy First Aid 'r' Us and found it very useful and effective, however I have a question, and how do we perform CPR on someone on someone who is in a wheelchair and has a cardiac arrest and cannot be removed from the wheelchair?

I'm having trouble imagining circumstances under which someone couldn't be removed from a wheelchair, given that they're in cardiac arrest so all other considerations must take second place to keeping blood flowing to essential organs.

I think you'd really struggle to perform effective CPR on someone if you couldn't get your weight above them for the chest compressions (except possibly in the case of infants, where I doubt this would be an issue).

ditto

But if this was the case you could tip the chair backwards: the handles would then be on the ground and the occupant's torso horizontal.

Could this be spam?
If not, cold the poster not just contact the course provider? There is a link on their website.

When a person is handicap, he or she may have a physical or mental condition that prevents them from performing the same daily task that people who are not handicap do. Moreover, the handicap person has various levels of disabilities. Depending on the level of disability, there are certain aspects that permits the handicap person to take part in.

When it comes to sports, special Olympics allows for the handicap person to partake with other handicap people in a competitive nature. However, when a person is sick and need assistance from a handicap person (who is the only person in the room), the levels of handicap is challenged, depending on the level of help needed.

The use of the word "handicap" is considered impolite.

Not, apparently, in the USA. Nor among racing sailors and pilots, golfers or jockeys. Indeed it makes more sense than "disabled" which literally implies "all or nothing" whereas handicap implies a consensus performance weighting factor.

Remember the famous Bob Hope - Sammy Davis Jr golf challenge:
"OK, what's your handicap?"
"I'm a one-eyed Jewish Negro. What's yours?"

What I find objectionable is the increasing use of "partake" for "participate". To say nothing of "in regards to". But then I'm very old and like people to say what they mean.

You need to look up your local first aid or red cross unit. Any replies you get here will be too local to be of use to you, or they will be spam which will be deleted.

In the event that you are around when a wheelchair client is gagging, unblocking their aviation route is a need. The initial step you ought to dependably take ought to urge the gagging injured individual to hack. On the off chance that they can't, at that point you ought to play out the accompanying emergency treatment systems:

Apply the brakes on the wheelchair and call for help: on the off chance that there is more than one individual at the scene, at that point you can ensure somebody is dependable with the setback.

Lean the gagging wheelchair client forward and slap their back multiple times.

Remain behind the loss and fold your arms over their ribcage, framing a clenched hand with your hands. At that point, pull the setback's body in towards you and up multiple times.

You may have dislodged the obstruction whilst performing the above techniques, so remember to check the casualtyís mouth and see if you can remove it. However, if you still havenít stopped the wheelchair user from choking, you should repeat steps 2 and 3 a further 3 times.
