This is the sixth drill in the 3-Rescuer CPR position drills. (Aquatics International, "CPR: Synchronized Teamwork", May 2013)
Lifeguards are in 3-person teams, with a primary rescuer, a secondary rescuer and a tertiary rescuer. A manikin will be used for the victim.
Rescuers will be wearing a fanny pack equipped with gloves and a pocket mask. Rescuers will also bring in an AED and BVM.
Victim is considered a dry victim with no spinal injury.
Rescuers will position themselves around the victim to provide the following skills:
Opening the airwayCPR Compressions
AED set up
After 5 seconds have passed, one rescuer will be replaced with a secondary rescuer. After 10 seconds, another primary will be replaced. After 15 seconds the last primary rescuer will be replaced. Throughout the drill, patient care should go uninterrupted. Drill ends when all primary rescuers have been replaced.
This is an all pass drill, meaning all rescuers must complete the drill for the lifeguard team to receive a pass. This drill must be completed in 25 seconds.
A 6-12 lifeguard team is preferred. Depending on size of staff, modify to accommodate needs.
