I teach CPR and first aid classes at Hannibal and Pike Island Lock and Dams for the Pittsburgh District of Army Corp of Engineers. I am stationed at Hannibal full-time but I am the instructor for the next Lock and Dam north of us for CPR and first aid. I hold an American Red Cross Instructor Certificate for CPR and first aid. (17. Combat Lifesavers). During CPR training the hand placement on the chest must be demonstrated along with how to open the airway, give breaths, and compression to breaths, on the “CPR mannequin”. To be certified one must perform CPR on the mannequin, pass the written test, and perform other hands on tasks. The “mannequin” has lights to indicate if the rhythm and depth of the compressions are correct. …show more content…
When one feels helpless and hopeless suicide comes to their thoughts and those thoughts need curtailed. At this point, the person needs to improve coping strategies, identify risk factors, and seek counselling. Persuasion is changing someone’s stance on a topic; it is important in suicide prevention. The persuasion must be based on facts to persuade and motivate the person, not opinion. You must form logical arguments with fact based responses to sway someone to your way of thinking. 4. Using Communication to Teach A. How I Use Communication Skills to Teach Teaching creates an effective way to communicate that permits verbal, written, and nonverbal usage. When teaching it is important to speak loud or use a microphone and be clear, as a Drill Sergeant this was easy; we learned to project our voice from the diaphragm. In Drill Sergeant School we were tested from 100 meters away, to assure the instructor could understand our verbal commands. (5. Drill Sergeant School). During lectures and meetings I give details to highlight, information in the form of a Power Point, outlines, maps, graphs, or schematics to assist in communicating information to my audience. As with giving a speech—if possible open

Have you ever thought about what you would do if a family member suddenly stopped breathing? Imagine that you grow up in a small town, the population is 700 people, and one morning you wake up and everyone in the town is dead. On any given day 670 people die of sudden cardiac arrest. Could it be a loved one, someone you care deeply for, or just a complete stranger? The chances are that someone in your family is going to die of sudden cardiac arrest in your lifetime. On average it takes an ambulance no less than seven minutes to reach someone in need, therefore, every adult should know how to administer CPR.
I feel that my experiences and goals closely align with the UWSOM’s mission. During my shadowing internship with Northwestern Medicine, I found that nearly every medical specialty I observed peaked my interest, but I could most clearly envision myself thriving in primary care. I specifically enjoy family medicine and building lasting relationships with patients, as well as internal medicine and seeing a wide variety of cases on a daily basis.
Verbal communication involves class discussions, answering questions in class, and even reading text aloud for everyone to gain a better understanding of what they are reading. Verbal also involves speaking with your teacher, and asking for help when a topic is not understood or a problem is causing confusion. The teacher must also communicate verbally with his or her students, asking them questions based off of their class discussions or school wise. Written communication can be through essay-writing, report cards, e-mail (a query or explanation of a topic), or through an online school website such as Edmodo or 'Remind' to help remind the students of homework, school events, and missed class activities due to a student's absence. Non-verbal involves both student and teacher's body language, which can reflect their attitude for wanting to learn and wanting to teach or help. A student must sit upright and be alert during class sessions, which gives both the teacher and student a positive attitude as the teacher can know that the student wants to learn. A teacher must also acknowledge students and be interactive with their class, as it can give the students positive attitudes. These forms of communication all lead to the development of the student and teacher, and is required
One of the important ways of communicating is teaching, which is rich in verbal, written, and nonverbal communication. I have given on the job training and taught numerous classes in the military to soldiers including: basic skills, marksmanship training, weapons maintenance, first aid, self-aid and buddy care, land navigation, urban warfare-mount training (entering and clearing buildings), personal hygiene, Military Occupation Specialist (MOS), battle drills, Equal Employment Opportunity, and Sexual Harassment and Assault Prevention (SHARP). (Appendix The Operations Security (OPSEC) required the teaching of the following: identifying crucial information, analyze the threat, analyze vulnerabilities, assess the risks, and plan countermeasure application. As a drill sergeant, additional teaching was required to instruct Drill and Ceremony, combat battle drills, and further weapon maintenance. When I was assigned as the Assistant Convey Commander while deployed in Iraq my duties were comprised of teaching battle drills, rollover drills, vehicle recovery, reaction to Improvised Explosive Device (IED), reaction to small arms fire, and additional weapon maintenance. (Appendix) As Assistant Convoy Commander in Iraq I would instruct the Humvee driver with nonverbal gestures, as needed (due to the noise of the
This article basically talks about what effect a critical situation has on a person involved in the situation. A paramedic is in a extremely uncomfortable situation, and they are asked to participate in a survey that asks how they feel after the critical incident. Right away it was noticed that paramedics had difficulty describing their feelings and they seemed to be externally oriented thinkers. Meanwhile, this affects a paramedics mental health greatly. A fact from the article stated that 22% paramedics from the surveys were borderline alexithyme, and 13% were in fact alexithyme. Alexithyme is stress disorders and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Paramedics get exposed to critical incidents and get diagnosed with even depression. A paramedic

As a continuation of our training on medical vocabulary and basic medical training like pulse, my class was able to learn about Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) while also gaining CPR certification through the American Red Cross. During this exercise I learned how to respond and react to a choking or unconscious person or infant. Besides learning response tactics like tapping the victims hip to check for any signs of response and how to most effectively direct onlooking people, we also spend multiple days practicing response procedures. I practiced abdominal thrusts on the other students, and was able to practice CPR procedures on dummies of both adults and infants. With these dummies I was also able to practice with dummy Automated External
With CPR training increasingly common in schools and workplaces throughout the country, the need for this set of skills cannot be overstated; performed properly, this knowledge can be the difference between life and death. That said, numerous studies show that CPR skills can deteriorate after certification, and there is a substantial loss of abilities even within 6 months. What’s more, in an emergency situation, every second counts, which is why it’s important to make these procedures and the use of defibrillation devices something easy to grasp for all. To address these needs, medical supplies distributor, Foremost Medical Equipment, is proud to carry the latest in defibrillator technology and training: the AED Smart Station Cabinet.

If there are no signs of life, place a breathing barrier (if available) over the victim's mouth.I would usually use an air mask that EMT's carry with them in the ambulance or in their side pocket. Give two rescue breaths and make sure to keep the air way open. Breathe slowly, as this will air go in the lungs not the stomach.Every time you give rescue breathe, keep your eye on the victim's chest.If the rescue breath goes in, you should see the chest slightly rise and also feel it go in.Then give a second rescue breath.If the breath does not go in, re-position the head and try again.After you successfully gave two rescue breaths, prepare for the hardest physical part of CPR.
