Before we start this oxygen course, we are assuming that you do know basic CPR, recovery position and first aid. When we are giving oxygen to somebody, the first aid that we are doing is exactly the same. We would still resuscitate them in the same way, we would still care for the person if someone's having a heart attack, all of this will be exactly the same; it is just that we are giving supplementary oxygen to help this person. What we are going to do in this course is look at giving oxygen to someone you are doing CPR on. So whether you are using a bag ventilation mask or whether you are using a pocket mask to resuscitate them, you are still using the same basic concepts and the same ratios as you would do with normal CPR. When you have got a breathing or unconscious patient, when you put them in the recovery position or someone is having a heart attack, you can still use supplementary oxygen. We are not changing the core first aid basic life support rules that you have already learned from your first aid courses. If you need to know more information or you need to recap on your first aid course, then maybe look at our Pro BLS course or one of our other first aid courses to give you more background information to support the training you want to get on this oxygen course. If you want a more advanced course, more practical use of oxygen, our first responder courses will be an ideal addition to this course.
