Heart attack or choking – would you know what to do?

What’s this got to do with orienteering? Well, it has been known for competitors to collapse and the cakes that Maroc Juniors turn out are choking hazards just waiting to happen as you gobble them down they’re so good!!

The defibrillator kept in CNR’s reception was recently used, successfully I’m happy to say, on a member of the public who’d collapsed outside. Our SHE department sent round a link to an interactive video from the Resuscitation Council (UK) on how to perform CPR, use a defib and also how help anyone choking.

I know we have club members trained in first aid but it’s still worth taking a look at this just in case it’s you who has to act in the middle of a forest one day. Be warned, it’ll get your heart racing as you try to “resuscitate” victims with your keyboard while a clock ticks down and the mood music and acting simulate the pressure you’d feel. Very effective messaging as well as teaching you the mechanics.
