CPR – What Is It Good For?

Thomas Howell, National Training Manager, Premium Health

Cardiac arrest is the ultimate 000 emergency. The heart stops sending blood to the body and brain, either because it is beating too fast and too erratically, or because it has stopped beating altogether. Oxygen-starved brain cells start to die. Death occurs in minutes — unless a bystander takes matters into his or her hands and starts cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Premium Health’s National Training Manager, Thomas Howell, will provide a live demonstration of high quality CPR using an interactive Brayden manikin (with animated LED lights under the skin) and discuss the relationship between effective CPR compression depth, speed and recoil and getting adequate blood flow to the brain and other organs.

Real Response – Virtual Reality vs Face to Face: What’s Better for Simulation Training

Motti Blum, Co-Founder & CEO, Real First Aid

Real Response is an Australian company who provide simulation training in order to help organisations deal with the reality of emergency situations. These simulations come in the form of virtual reality, face to face and any other ways that will make the training more informational, innovative and immersive.

Real Response will compare VR with face to face, which training is right for which type of training and how the training works. There will be a virtual reality demo of a mass casualty incident (MCI) where a terrorist has rammed a bus into a hotel and the user will act as a paramedic first responder in a training simulation. Real Response will then compare that to face to face training and share some tips, advice and tricks on how to know what’s right for you.
