React Right

Today I received my digital React Right specialty card. React Right is a course combo that includes first aid, CPR, AED, and oxygen administration. It is valid for 2 years.

This was an easy specialty, simply because I have been CPR and first aid certified quite a few times over the years. I have even been AED certified at least once. My experience has included both adult and child/infant training.

In fact, I educated my instructor about a few things, especially with infant CPR. Learning to properly hold a choking baby is not something you can read; you really have to see it demonstrated and give it a try on an appropriate mannequin.

The only thing I had never done before was oxygen administration. It’s not difficult; the bottom line is to get to know your equipment before you ever might need to use it. 

I highly recommend learning lifesaving skills. Never get caught in a situation with a loved one, a friend, an acquaintance, or even a total stranger, where you might feel completely helpless. Even one class every 2 years, if that’s all you do, will give you at least a basic idea of how to start to respond during an emergency.
