This link will take you to a video that screened on Seven Sharp recently http://tvnz.co.nz/seven-sharp/dad-s-life-saving-cpr-after-finding-toddler-face-down-in-pond-video-6478885
It features a father who had to perform CPR on his daughter after finding her face down in a pond. Not something any of us would want to deal with, however this highlights that perhaps CPR should be viewed as a life skill, rather than something compulsory.
Many thanks to those of you who have taken time to do the online tests and send us feedback about them. They have been a work in progress, and we have managed to incorporate most of your suggestions into them. Why not give them a go if you have some downtime?

Tip of the month
This months top tip is from Philippe Gianni - a dentist at Lumino Ponsonby in Auckland. We give out algorithms on courses, and if you are not sure where to keep them, simply use Philippes' tip - attach them to the back of pictures that you have in your surgery/practice. They are out of sight when not needed, and if you do need them simply turn the picture over!
Stay dry, warm and safe
