With over 15 years of experience, CPR First Aid Australia has helped save countless lives through the most intuitively constructed, engaging first aid training courses.

I was at work (residential support worker) and a young person was on the floor, they were unconscious and needed CPR! I had got a coworker to call 000 while I had started 30 compressions 2 breaths and checked their heart/pulse. After continuing to do the compressions for close to 2 mins, the young person had regained consciousness and was checked by the ambulance upon arrival.

A few weeks after my cpr course, my friends father fell unconscious - in my arms! It was a so good to have just done the CPR refresher course as I didn’t panic & freeze up (which is what I normally do - like a deer caught in the headlights). So instead I stayed calm & I followed the cpr process to the T! I didn’t end up resuscitating him because the paramedics arrived soon after but at least I kept him alive til then! So happy to have done such a life saving course as this! Thanks so much

Was playing indoor bowls and one of our club members fell to the ground as a result everyone thought he tripped but instead a cardiac arrest. as the patient layed on floor turning blue so myself and one other started cpr immediatly. While other club member rang for ambulance continued cpr till help arrived some 20mins later. Then they took over resulting in shock treatment when vital signs returned then off to hospital for stable condition but unfortunatly passed away few hours later.

I witnessed a road side accident where a pedestrian was hit by a car. The pedestrian was severely injured and laying unconscious on the ground. Emergency services were called and because the pedestrian was not breathing and showing no signs of life I was directed by triple zero to commence CPR. I performed CPR on the person for approximately 5 minutes before emerges services arrived. In the moment I was shocked at how much I remembered about basic life support and how to deliver CPR. Once emergency services arrived they took over the situation. It is a situation I didn’t know if I would ever be faced with and luckily I was there as I was the only person on the scene with basic life support skills. It is from this event that I encourage everyone to be first aid trained as you never know when you will be needed to try and save a life!

A few years back I was driving on a busy road and noticed up ahead cars were moving lanes as of to dodge something, as I came closer I realised there was a bike on the road and young girl laying near it. I quickly pulled into the petrol station just before the accident, I had honestly recently done a refresher with you guys and that gave me confidence to take charge of the situation, I immediately directed bystanders to direct traffic and was able to assess the young girl, directed a bystander to go get the first aid kit from the service station and commence first aid. Eventually the ambos came and took over care but before I arrived the incident happened 10min earlier apparently no one had taken charge there was easily 20 people around but al unsure of what to do. I was and still am very grateful for my training and the young girl had a good recover. Won’t go into what happened to the driver who hit the girl as they got a slap on the wrist but I was grateful I was able to assist.

Monday 1 August 2022I saw a 7 year old child running up a set of stairs at work. I heard the fall, saw part of the fall, heard him scream and crying so I quickly moved from the gym past the customer service desk. I saw the customer service staff were busy so I quickly attended to the child on the stairs. I very kindly said “You will be ok. I know it hurts but we can make you feel better soon.” I asked customers in the area if they witnessed what happened. They witnessed he was running up the stairs and told me the number of steps he fell down. His mum arrived as I was speaking to him. She sat on the stairs beside him and cuddled him. We decided to wait until the child was crying less to communicate effectively with him. He fell down about 5 steps, screamed, cried uncontrollably and was holding his right knee and between his right hip and rib cage. Apparently, his knee was hurting the most. At this stage, one of the customer service staff came to the stairs to take over from me. I was meant to be in the gym with a member and the customer service staff were response to manage that area of the facility, when possible. In this case, I was the first staff member on the scene. I verbally passed on all of the information to the customer service staff. I returned to the gym and apologised to the gym member for leaving him so suddenly. I did not provide him with any information and he did not see the child fall. i ensured the customer service staff included my information in his report for the safety manager. Thank you, Maria Crea
