Performance Evidence (Practical Session)

The student must show evidence of the ability to complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the job role.

Student must follow DRSABCD in line with ARC guidelines, including:

  1. Performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (5 cycles of both compressions and ventilations) on an adult resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
  2. Performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on a child resuscitation manikin placed on the floor
  3. Performed at least 2 minutes of uninterrupted single rescuer CPR (5 cycles both compressions and ventilations) on an infant resuscitation manikin placed on a firm surface
  4. Responded appropriately in the event of regurgitation or vomiting
  5. Managed the unconscious breathing casualty
  6. Followed single rescue procedure, including the demonstration of a rotation of operators with minimal interruptions to compressions
  7. Followed the prompts of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

Responded to at least three simulated first aid scenarios contextualised to the students's workplace/community setting, and involving infants and children of varying ages including:

  1. Conducted a visual and verbal assessment of the casualty
  2. Demonstrated safe manual handling techniques
  3. Post-incident debrief and evaluation
  4. Provided an accurate verbal and written report of the incident
  5. Conducted a hazard assessment and identified strategies to minimise risk

Applied first aid procedures for the following:

  1. Allergic reaction
  2. Anaphylaxis
  3. Bleeding control
  4. Choking and airway obstruction
  5. Envenomation, using pressure immobilisation
  6. Fractures, sprains and strains, using arm slings, roller bandages or other appropriate immobilisation principles techniques
  7. Head injuries
  8. Poisoning
  9. Respiratory distress, including asthma
  10. Seizures & convulsions, including febrile convulsions and epilepsy
  11. Shock
  12. Located and interpreted workplace policies and procedures

Knowledge Evidence (Online Theory & Practical Session)

The student must be able to demonstrate essential knowledge required to effectively complete tasks outlined in elements and performance criteria of this unit, manage tasks and manage contingencies in the context of the work role. This includes knowledge of:

State/Territory regulations, first aid codes of practice and workplace procedures including:

  1. ARC Guidelines for provision of CPR and first aid to infants, children and adults
  2. Guidelines from Australian national peak clinical bodies
  3. Safe work practices to minimise risks and potential hazards
  4. First aid requirements for services under the Education and Care Services National Law
  5. Infection control principles and procedures, including use of standard precautions
  6. Requirements for currency of skill and knowledge

Legal, workplace and community considerations, including:

  1. Awareness of potential need for stress-management techniques and available support following an emergency situation, including the psychological impact on children
  2. Duty of care requirements
  3. Respectful behaviour towards a casualty
  4. Own skills and limitations
  5. Consent, including situations in which parental/caregiver consent is required
  6. Privacy and confidentiality requirements
  7. Importance of debriefing

Considerations when providing first aid including:

  1. Airway obstruction due to body position
  2. Appropriate duration and cessation of CPR
  3. Appropriate use of an AED, including placement of pads for adults and children aged older than 8 years
  4. Specific considerations when using an AED on children aged between 1 and 8 years, including identification of AED with paediatric capability, paediatric voltage and use of paediatric pads
  5. Chain of survival
  6. Standard precautions
  7. How to conduct a visual and verbal assessment of the casualty

Principles and procedures for application of first aid management of the following scenarios:

  1. Abdominal injuries
  2. Allergic reaction
  3. Anaphylaxis, including signs, symptoms and triggers and using different types of adrenaline auto injectors
