[IEP] 2018 CPR Training for IEP Students @ Tianchang High School
Updated: Apr 17
On the afternoon of April 9, 2018, we were fortunate to have Dr. Tang Song Bing from the People’s Hospital of Tianchang City to provide a CPR rescue training for our IEP students. The lively lecture and hands on practice benefited the students a lot.
First of all, Dr. Tang described how to evaluate if a target is in need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Which is divided into three steps by checking the patient’s consciousness, breathing and the rhythm of the heartbeat. Then moving on he described the two stages of CPR: 1. Chest cardiac compression and 2. Artificial respiration. He specifically stressed in any rescue process it is important to pay attention to certain issues and frequently occurred errors, so as not to cause secondary injury to the patient.
Lastly, Dr. Tang provided a demonstration of the correct form of CPR. After clarifying the basics and procedures of CPR, the students were given a chance to practice in a group of two. During practice, Dr. Tang also explained in more the details and corrected the students when needed, thus the students were able to apprehend the correct form of conducting a CPR.
Through this training, the students learned basic rescue knowledge and common sense, as well as the opportunity to have hands on practice on safe self-help and mutual rescue at the scene. This training enabled the students to understand that life is above all else, cherishing it starts from oneself. If we ever encounter an incident, we should lend our helping hand and show our kindness and dedication. Let each of us use our meagre power to build a life bridge for everyone around us with kindness.
