Performance Evidence (Practical Training)

The participant must show evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit in the context of the workplace or community setting.

  • managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, breathing casualty including appropriate positioning to reduce the risk of airway compromise

Managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, non-breathing adult, including:

  • performing 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
  • following the prompts of an automated external defibrillator (AED) to deliver at least one shock
  • demonstrating a rotation of single rescuer operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
  • responding appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
  • handing over to emergency services
  • providing an accurate verbal report of the incident
  • reviewing the incident

Managed, in line with ARC guidelines, the unconscious, non-breathing infant, including:

  • performing 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.
