There are millions out here in the world who have been trained in the basic resuscitation procedure that we all know as CPR. But how many of us actually put into practice in their lives. If you ask the majority of the populations who have received this training if they have ever put their skills and training into use, there will be very few people who actually put their hand up and say that they have saved somebody’s life with their CPR skills when they have seen an individual collapsing right in front of their eyes.
Research has found out that only about 1/3rd of the people who have received this training actually put into practice when the need arises. With several individuals trained, why is it that bystander CPR is not carried out more often?
So what could be holding them back?
Why is it that the people who have spent their time attending to these CPR courses Perth, not doing anything with what they have learnt when there is a person in front of them who needs their help? Well there may be so many factors contributing to this problem and the hesitation that most people have. For starters, the biggest issue with the majority of the people is that they forget what to do when they have been put into such a live situation. When it’s a real human being in front of them who needs their help they tend to panic and they have a brain freeze. They forget what they know and what they don’t know.
So in situation like that they basically forget the fact that they can actually be of some help.The other reason why individuals might not be putting their basic first aid certificate skills into practice might be the fact that they are not sure if they will make the right call in that moment when everything is thrown into chaos. Because everything has turned upside down and they are hesitant to try out what they know. Because some of them have learnt the steps long ago and have forgotten them and this is not the situation to be thinking about the steps while you are doing it. It should just flow out.
Then there is also the gross factor that some of them are worried about. Nobody wants to give mouth-to-mouth to somebody they don’t know. It’s not a great feeling that one goes through when performing this and to do on a total stranger would put most people off.
And this is the reason why there are so much of studies going on around the world to see the extent to which CPR can actually help a dying man.
