First Aid North Coast - ABN: 78 344 022 646 - CPR Training, Ballina, Byron Bay, Alstonville, Lismore, Gold Coast, Grafton & Northern Rivers


Newest guidelines for CPR have been simplified so that anyone can at least make an effort. See Resuscitation Council for in depth info.

Fact is, if a person is showing no signs of life, (not breathing, not moving, not responding) then clearly, an ambulance is needed.However, if no-one attempts any CPR while waiting, an ambulance isn’t likely to do much good. A few minutes with no pulse and the casualty’s chances of survival get very small very quickly.

If you can do nothing but push on the chest, (1/3 of chest depth, a bit faster than 1 per second) you can buy some time for the ambo’s.

Of course it is good to be familiar with the whole emergency first aid method, but chest compressions are the most important and straightforward action in these situations.
