Lifeguarding Drill: 3-Rescuer CPR/AED and BVM position with 1 rescuer added
This is the fifth 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 airway/CPR Compressions
AED set up
After 5 seconds have passed, one rescuer will be added, integrating into the lifeguard team to assist in providing care. .
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 10 seconds.
A 6-12 lifeguard team is preferred. Depending on size of staff, modify to accomodate needs.
