How About a CPR?

Short Talk: I'm actually really upset about my midterm test which I sat just now. I think I'm really going to fail this time. Now, I just hope I won't fail that much. For your interest, this test is worth 35% of the unit! It's a lot! *Sigh* Don't tell me I'm not going to graduate because of this unit...

During my midterm break last week, International Student Service (ISS) of The University of Western Australia (UWA) organised a very useful and meaningful course for the students; First Aid Course. This course was conducted by Australian Red Cross.

Australian Red Cross, East Perth.

Since it's study break, I thought why not taking up this course? Somemore, I can learn something new! However, this 2-days course is not cheap. Normal price is Aud$155, but ISS managed to give us a special price at Aud$100.

First Aid Handbook.

The theoretical part of the course was nothing interesting. Everything was based on this First Aid Handbook.

Very comprehensive book.

This handbook is worthed Aud$25 (which is included in the course). In case of any emergencies (e.g. choking, poisoning, stroke etc), you can always refer to this book. It gives description of the illness/accident and also ways to provide treatments.

Kok was learning Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).

In this course, we were also taught some basic first aids. The most important is Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). This is used to take advantage of the girl/guy ;) when a victim has no signs of life. No signs of life means no response (unconscious), not breathing normally and not moving.

Instructor demonstrated a head bandage.

Apart from that, we were also taught several techniques on applying a bandage. For me, bandaging is the hardest among all the skills taught.

Serious! No smiling or laughing!

Bandaging, for me, is an art. It's quite difficult to master it. You need to apply the right bandage in order to minimise the victim's pain.

Jon, WWE?

Although in this course, we need to concentrate and be serious in learning all the stuff, we still manage to take some time out to "relax". Look at Jon! He's not giving CPR to the victim, instead, he wrestled with the victim! Actually this was done during lunch time. :P

Certified first aiders.

All practical were assessed earlier. At the end of the second day, we were given a 30 multiple questions as theory test. Don't worry, it's an easy test. Everyone is going to pass that test. ;)

Not all participants were from my uni. Some of them are working adults and one is a student from Murdoch University. Therefore, don't assume this course is not useful. It'll help when you face any emergencies!

Statement of attainment.

Anyway, now I'm a certified first aider but I still need more practice!

teckiee said...

HAHAHAHAHAH!

Muminmiri said...

Hee Hee how did u do the fish mouth open and close thing? So funny. But if I imagine you need to do CPR on me, even funnier la....

eastcoastlife said...

hahahahaha.... that goldfish mouth!

It's a useful course. Any one with medical problems going out with you is safe. I hope you don't take it as an excuse to only save the girls.

Kok said...

wmw: Hahaha! I never thought of getting a fish bowl over my head. hahaha! I shall see more comments when you put on your comic strip. :P

Aunty Judy: You laugh so loud! Later your lau ang thought you're siao lah!:P Eh, custom made fish bowl, sure got!

dancing queen: That's my purpose! Getting someone to wake up without me giving any CPR. No sweat! haha!

teckiee: You don't laugh too loud. Later pengsan I have to give CPR lah. haha!

muminmiri: I'm combining 2 photos together to make it as a .gif file. Using a software to do that though. hehe. If I give you CPR, I think you'll faint longer. haha!

eastcoastlife: Haha! Again, you noticed my goldfish mouth like the others instead of my first aid course. haha!

Yaya, of course I don't learn it to save girls only lah. Accidents can happen anywhere. This is useful in case of any emergencies. Those who go out with me still won't feel save lah. I need more practice. ;)

keeyit: It's meant to make everyone laughs. Hope you enjoy the last photo!:P

lee: I hope so. But my feeling tell me, I would only get 30-40% out of 100. Haih..

chen: I do hope so. However, I know myself that I didn't do well. That's why I'm so disappointed and sad...

tummythoz: Hope you enjoy it!:P

xiu long bao: Did the photo make you laugh? haha! Ermm...I use a software to overlap two photos together. In order words, to make it as a gif file. Wanna know more?

Hmm...I also hope so. I don't wanna screw up my final semester of uni. It won't feel good... Thanks for the comfort anyway. :)

joy: Thanks! haha! Hope you have a laugh on that. :P Errmmm...I still need more practice actually. Cause I know I'll be more nervous when there's any emergency. hehe.

jane: You must have a great laugh, eh? haha!

BlurMommy said...

yenjai.net said...

Just trying to say: NO lar. I don't think you will fail

ilene said...

Hey KOK, I like the way you make your mouth move! Clever lah you.

Did they not also teach you to use a funnel to blow into the mouth as a precaution against hiv person? I too attended one and we were taught to use newspaper in case of emergency and not to apply the mouth to mouth resustitation.

Shionge said...

I know I'll be safe with you around now Kok hehehe... ;)

Hey, sorry to hear about your test result..:(

wonda said...

Wah! Your first kiss! A doll only? A girl would pengsan first seeing your goldfish lips. Then that's your chance to do CPR! Haha!

Sue Sue said...

Hahahaha... y ur last pic so funny one. Even my Le-Ann ask me 'Mommy y this kor kor like this one (pointing to ur mouth).. LOL

Kok said...

blurmommy: I'm saving people by scaring them. hahaha!

yenjai: I also hope so...

ilene: Hehe. Hope that made you laugh. :P

They got teach us that but then hor, no practical. I think 2 days course was a bit too short loh. Like I said, I still need more practice. hehe.

shionge: Er...I don't think so leh. I don't have any practice except those 2 days. hehehe.

Just hope not the worst...

Aunty Alice: No choice loh. No girls to kiss, then kiss doll loh. haha! That's exactly what I've thought of. hahaha!

sue: I hope I didn't make your Le-Ann faint. hahaha! Did she ask whether she can learn this gold fish lips or not? kekeke!

Hope this make you laugh!!:P
