EFRI courses Indonesia Gili Islands

When you become an EFR Instructor you should know why it is so important to give CPR. During the IDCs at Oceans 5 dive resort it will clearly explained why and how CPR works during the EFR instructor Courses Gili Islands.

This article gives you a good idea about CPR: http://www.livestrong.com

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation, also known as CPR, is a set of basic emergency skills designed to help save a person’s life when her heart has stopped beating or she has stopped breathing. The American Heart Association, or AHA, emphasizes the importance of CPR by stating that CPR, performed in an effective and timely manner, can double a person’s chance of survival.

Function of CPR

The purpose of CPR is to provide critical body organs with oxygen-rich blood, according Medline Plus. CPR performs two basic functions: Chest compressions help maintain the circulation of blood throughout the victim’s body to vital organs in the absence of a pulse, and rescue breathing, such as mouth-to-mouth, helps provide the victim’s blood with oxygen in the absence of normal breathing.

EFRI Gili Islands with IDC dive resort Oceans 5 dive Gili Air Indonesia

EFRI Gili Islands with IDC dive resort Oceans 5 dive Gili Air Indonesia

Why Is CPR Important?

When a person stops breathing or his heart stops beating, his body organs no longer are receiving the oxygen needed to stay alive, and the tissues will ultimately begin to die. The most vital organ that must be protected is the brain; in the absence of a pulse or respirations, a person’s brain will undergo permanent damage after only four minutes, according to Medline Plus. Performing effective CPR keeps the blood oxygenated and keeps the brain supplied with the oxygen it needs to stay alive and avoid damage.

Statistics

The AHA states that, in the absence of CPR, a victim’s chance of survival drops 7 to 10 percent for every minute that lapses between collapse and medical intervention. Every year, there are 294,851 cardiac arrests treated outside of the hospital in the United States. About 80 percent of all cardiac arrests that occur out of the hospital happen in homes, which emphasizes the importance of all capable individuals being trained to perform CPR.

CPR Basics

The foundational elements of CPR build off three simple steps, made easy to remember by AB-CABS. A stands for airway: After determining that the victim is unresponsive and calling for help, the initial step is to open her airway by tilting her head and lifting her chin. B stands for looking quickly for breathing. C stands for compressions, begin chest compressions, stopping every 30 compressions to give two breaths. CPR technique varies slightly for children and infants.

The candidates passed all the confined session with fantastic scores and they are ready for the PADI Instructor Examination (IE). The candidates didn’t practice only 4 confined presentations, till now they have done 7 confined presentations, so they have practice a lot of skills.

Oceans 5 dive resort stands for quality and like to implement their ideas about this also in the IDC. Our candidates are not trained to pass an IE but to become a full PADI Dive instructor.

IDC Indonesia is over!

IDC Indonesia Gili Islands is over!

It is over! The candidates finished their IDC with IDC dive resort Oceans 5 dive Gili Air.

The last day was only Open Water Presentations. There was 1 Open Water Presentation in the morning and 1 in the afternoon.

IDC Gili Islands

IDC Gili Islands

How does an Open Water Open Presentation works:

Students perform each skill on the Dive Instructors signal.
* Students are expected to self correct (as long as safety isn’t compromised).
* The Dive Instructor is not reteaching skills – just apply reminders of critical attributes to their students.
* The Dive Instructors inform the students of the difference if performing skill in open water as opposed to confined water.

Control is very important as open water environment is less predictable than confined. The Dive Instructor can practice more than one skill at once whereas in confined the Dive Instructor only practice one skill at a time.

After the PADI Instructor Examination (IE), there will be an EFRI course and 7 Instructor Specialty Courses.

It was nice to see and to hear a funny presentation that also had all the points of a PADI teaching presentation.

In the afternoon there were 2 Confined Open Water presentations, these time they had a few tricky skills like, deep water exit, rescue breathing with pocket mask, and distressed diver out of air. For everyone it was a nice new learning day, even for PADI Course Director Sander and IDC Staff Instructor Allen.

Earproblems at PADI IDC Gili Islands

Ear problems are the kind of problems you better can’t get during the PADI IDC. This time it was one of the IDC candidates that had some ear problems but PADI Course Director Sander Buis.

Sander went to the clinic on Gili Air after he had some problems with his ears, there the doctor advised him to stay out of the water for at least 1 day. It is not the news you are waiting for if you have to teach an IDC and when you like to spend every day a part of the day in the water to break the days. Well there is nothing what he could do about it, so Sander had to reschedule his IDC and instead of some Open Water Presentations, the candidates were doing classroom presentations and had to listen to Allen and Sander when they did some presentations.

The IDC is still on schedule, The candidates, Lewis and Margot, are doing fine. Tomorrow they have there last classroom presentation, have to listen to the last presentations of Sander and Allen, and in the afternoon when everything is ok, they will be in the pool for their Confined Open Water Presentations 4 and 5.

Because the group size of this IDC is not that big, Oceans 5 and PADI Course Director Sander decided to schedule more Confined Sessions in this IDC, the IDC candidates will see more problems, are getting more familiar with the PADI teaching system and will see more than a few skills. It will give the IDC candidates more confidents for the upcoming PADI Instructor Examination, and make them more an all-round PADI instructor.

Well we see what the day will bring, if the ears of Sander let him into the water…..

During the beginning of the afternoon, PADI Course Director Sander Buis took the candidates to the on land training site. This training site is developed to explain how the control works of an Instructor underwater. Control in Open water is totally different comparing the control in confined open water. The circumstances of open water dive sites are less predictable. It helps the candidates to understand how to position their students during open water training, how to talk with their divemaster, and clearly to communicate with their student.

In the afternoon their were some presentations of PADI Course Director Sander Buis. At 16.30 the day was over, the homework was to prepare their 3th classroom presentation, a presentation about the PADI divemaster course.

IDC Gili Islands Lombok August 2013

The day of the presentations.
The IDC candidates had the assignments to do a classroom presentation about the PADI Rescue Course and they had to prepare not 1 but 2 confined open water presentations for the afternoon.

IDC dive resort Oceans 5 dive Gili Air likes to teach people to become real instructors. So the candidates have to reduce their preparation time like in real life. When they are a real PADI Dive instructor they can’t say to the student, please wait for a hour because I have to prepare some skills first.

IDC Gili Indonesia Dive resort 7

It was a very good day for Margot and Lewis; all passing scores. Today no homework.

Tomorrow the IDC candidates have first all the Exams, Dive Theory and General Standards, then time to prepare their Open Water Presentations, and then their first time in the ocean.

It will be fun!
