Kilcreggan Primary P6 and p7 pupils recently received “Heartstart “ training. This training gives pupils guidance about what to do if they find someone suffering a cardiac arrest attack. They learned about
• how to correctly put someone into the recovery position and assess their condition
• what to in an emergency situation,
• how to recall the procedures using the “DRS ABC” acronym.
They used the “Little Annie” dummies to learn how to perform CPR.
They also had a demonstration on how to use the defibrillator.
Pupils really enjoyed the session and all took part with great enthusiasm, asking very sensible questions.
Staff then had the opportunity to learn about using the defillator during their lunch break. There are now several defibrillators available for public use on the Rosneath Peninsula and in the Helensburgh area.
