Croílíne Chois Fharraige

Céad Fhreagróirí Pobail

Community First Responders

Ar an gcúrsa foghlaimeoidh tú na bun scileanna a bhaineann le athbheochan chardascamhógach (CPR), conas úsáid a bhaint as uath-dhífhibrileoir seachtrach (AED) agus conas dul i gcabhair ar dhaoine fásta, páistí agus libh a bheadh á dtachtadh.

Dífhibrileoir ríomhaireachta is ea an AED a dhéanann ainilís ar rithim-croí an té a bhfuil staid cairdeach ag dul dó/di agus a thugann leid-gutha i gcás go mbeadh gá le turraing. Is páirt thábhachtach de shlabhra an mharthanais an AED agus ar an gcúrsa seo foghlaimeoidh tú conas iad a úsáid go héifeachtach. Beidh neart deiseanna ar an gcúrsa na scileanna seo a chleachtadh.

Chomh maith leis sin, mar chuid den chúrsa, beidh modúl a bhaineann le riaradh aspairín, conas stróc agus taoim croí a aithint; tuiscint ar an strus a bhaineann le teagmhas criticiúil agus conas déileáil leis; tuairisc an chéad-fhreagróra cairdiach agus ceisteanna a bhaineann le slánaíocht dlíthiúil.

Beidh cárta an Chomhairle um Chúram Práinne Réamh Ospidéil (cúrsa pobail Céad Fhreagróga Ciardiacha) le fáil acu siúd a chríochnaíonn an cúrsa agus a n-éiríonn leo.


Croílíne offer two types of training in CPR:

1) Family and Friends CPR course

Would you know what to do if someone collapses suddenly and is not responsive?

Did you know that most people who have a sudden cardiac arrest die before reaching hospital?

Do you know what an AED/ defibrillator is?

Helping to save a life is easier than you think.

Statistics show that if more people knew CPR, more lives would be saved. Immediate CPR can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival. Using an AED (defibrillator) increases the chance of survival even more.

A Family and Friends CPR course is for anyone who wants to learn basic lifesaving skills of adult Hands-Only CPR, relief of choking and AED (defibrillator) awareness.

Course Content

Adult Hands-Only CPR

Adult choking relief

General AED awareness

The course is very easy only takes about 1 hour and is being provided by Croílíne (the Cois Fharraige Cardiac First Responders Group) free of charge.

2) Cúrsaí Céad Fhreagróirí Cairdiacha/Cardiac First Responders Courses

This course teaches you the basic techniques of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), how to use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and the relief of choking for adults, children and infants.

An AED is a computerised defibrillator which analyses the heart rhythm of a person in cardiac arrest and uses voice prompts to advise you if a shock is required. The AED is an important link in the chain of survival and this course teaches how to use them effectively. The course will provide you with ample opportunity to practice these skills.

In addition to this, the cardiac first responders course includes a module on the administration of aspirin, recognition of stroke and heart attack, critical incident stress awareness and debrief, cardiac first responder report and legal indemnity issues.

On completion of the course you will receive an Irish Heart Foundation/Pre Hospital Emergency Care Council certificate.

Details of how the Cardiac First Responders scheme works will also be explained.


During these practice sessions we will focus on, how to respond to a call out from the National Ambulance Service (NAS), adult CPR and use of the Defibrillator (AED).

Don't worry if you think you have forgotten everything you did at the course - that is why we have practices!!! The practices are about refreshing your memory and improving your CPR skills.

If you have not already completed Garda Clearance, you can bring along proof of identity and address and we will complete the form at the practice session. We can also discuss other requirements that may be coming in the future and dates for renewing your certificate.
