The following videos provide visual demonstrations of emergency response techniques. You can see and hear how to correctly perform rescue breathing, chest compressions, and the Heimlich Maneuver by reviewing them. I obtained the videos from PROTrainings’ collection of YouTube presentations related to emergency responses. ProTrainings conducts a wide variety of emergency response training for healthcare agencies and other first responders.
Watching the videos does not substitute for taking a first responder class. Proper training is essential to performing the steps necessary for a successful rescue attempt, especially if you work with a partner trained as a first responder. With two trained rescuers, you can anticipate each and work better as a team. Therefore, I encourage you to seek a first responder course. In addition to courses taught by ProTrainings, you may also obtain training through the American Red Crossor American Heart Association. Find Emergency Airway Management techniques in a separate post.
