First Aid on the Streets, Ep. 1: CPR


“Ah, ah, ah, ah, staying alive, staying alive Ah, ah, ah, ah, staying alive, staying alive” I might be a professional comedian but there’s nothing funny about providing first aid care That’s why I became a certified first aid instructor with the Canadian Red Cross and I’m headed to the streets to find out what you know about providing first aid care. Hey, hi, excuse me, this is not an emergency situation, I just want to talk to you about first aid, okay? Yeah, for sure. So how do you determine where to give a proper compression? Where do you think it is? Probably more centre of the chest. If you put your hand up like this and put it in your arm pit, right up to the top, then come straight across to the middle, right? You’ve got to be able to find with your palm where to go. Okay. “Staying Alive, Staying Alive, ah, ah, ah, ah, Staying Alive, Staying Alive” “Ah, ah, ah, ah, Staying Alive”… Place your hand and put it right underneath the armpit. So as soon as you slide right the chest to the centre, that’s exactly where you’ll start. Hi I’m Chris the mannequin And I want you to go to redcross.ca to sign up for a First Aid course so you can get the knowledge, skills, and the preparation to help people in an emergency situation. Just to be sure, by watching this video doesn’t mean you’re qualified to provide the first aid skills we’ve been talking about and any time you want to provide care, always ask first.
