What if I need to assist with CPR on someone suspected of having Covid 19
There is a list of all residents who are Defibrillator trained. This is available on the website. If you are required to perform CPR you should conduct a risk assessment and adopt appropriate precautions for infection control.
Where possible, it is recommended that you do to perform rescue breaths or mouth to mouth Ventilation; perform chest compressions only. This is on the advice of the Resusitation guidelines 2010. If mouth to mouth is required then it must be done with a face-shield.
