Healthy and Safe Swimming Importance Info

The week before Memorial Day (May 20–26, 2019) is Healthy and Safe Swimming Week. The goal of this awareness week is to maximize the health benefits of swimming by minimizing the risk of illness and injury. Just 2.5 hours of physical activity every week, including water-based physical activity, can benefit everyone’s health. Each of us plays a role in preventing illnesses and injuries linked to the water we swim, play, relax in, and share. Swimming is a fun, healthy way to stay physically active and spend quality time with family and friends. Healthy and Safe Swimming Week highlights the roles that swimmers, parents of young swimmers, aquatics and beach staff, residential pool owners, and public health officials play in preventing disease outbreaks, drowning, and pool chemical injuries. Why Is Healthy and Safe Swimming Week Important? Injuries caused by mishandling pool chemicals: Pool chemicals are added to maintain water quality (for example, to kill germs). Each year, however, mishandling pool chemicals when treating public or residential/backyard pools, hot tubs/spas, and water playgrounds leads to 3,000–5,000 visits to U.S. emergency departments. For more info, visit CDCs Pool Chemical Info. Illnesses caused by the germs in pools, hot tubs/spas, and water playgrounds: During 2000–2014, nearly 500 outbreaks were linked to pools, hot tubs/spas, and water playgrounds. Most of the outbreaks were caused by germs Cryptosporidium (or “Crypto”), Legionella, or Pseudomonas. Healthy swimming is not just about the steps pool operators and pool inspectors take—so let’s all do our part to help keep ourselves, our families, and our friends healthy. For more info, visit CDCs Healthy Swimming Info. Drowning: Each day, two children younger than 14 years old die from drowning. Drowning is a leading cause of death for children 1–4 years old. we want to remind you about drowning prevention. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental injury or death in children under the age of 5. Drowning can be quick and silent. It's a fallacy that the act of drowning is accompanies by screams or splashing, making proactive prevention crucial. To help prevent drownings, please remember to have active adult supervision, never swim alone, make sure your pool is fenced with self-closing/latching gates, and most of all keep a Pool / Lifeguard First Aid Kit on hand. For more info, visit CDCs Water Injuries Info. Harmful algal blooms: Algae can grow in warm, nutrient-rich fresh- and marine water. An abundant growth of algae that harms people or animals is referred to as a harmful algal bloom (HAB). HABs in fresh- and marine water can produce toxins that cause a variety of symptoms including skin irritation, coughing, sneezing, diarrhea, stomach pain, numbness, and dizziness. Symptoms vary depending on the type of HAB toxin and the type of exposure, such as skin contact, ingestion by eating food or drinking water contaminated with HAB toxins, or breathing in tiny droplets or mist contaminated with HAB toxins. For more info, visit CDCs HAB Toxin Info Naegleria fowleri “the brain-eating ameba”: Naegleria fowleri is a microscopic ameba (a singlecelled living organism) that is commonly found in warm freshwater such as in lakes, rivers, and hot springs. If water containing the ameba goes up the nose forcefully, the ameba can invade and cause a rare and devastating infection of the brain called primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM).

CPR Instructors scramble to meet new AHA Requirements by January 31

January 30, 2019 American CPR Training™ reminds Instructors that the American Heart Association’s new requirements for CPR training courses using CPR feedback devices are effective in just two weeks. The American Heart Association published that they “will now require the use of an instrumented directive feedback device in all courses that teach adult CPR skills, effective January 31, 2019". Also, the American Red Cross published a statement that they “will incorporate CPR feedback devices in all classes delivered directly by the American Red Cross and recommend CPR feedback device usage for all training partners”. To comply with the new course requirement, feedback devices must, at minimum, measure and provide real-time audio feedback and/or visual feedback on compression rate and depth. Other national training organizations (American CPR Training™, etc.) have not yet implemented these requirements for instructors, however, it is likely that the 2020 ILCOR/ECC guidelines will include this requirement in which case all compliant CPR Training organizations in the US will add this to their instructor guidelines. American Heart Association Requirements: • Chest compressions are delivered at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions per minute and at a depth of at least two inches. • Feedback devices must, at a minimum, measure and provide real-time audio and/or visual feedback on compression rate and depth. • Although chest recoil and proper hand placement is noted in the announcement, it is NOT part of the compliance with the directive. Prestan Professional CPR Manikins with CPR feedback meet the new requirements! Prestan evaluated their Manikin products in light of the American Heart Association statements and have determined that Prestan Professional Adult CPR/AED Training Manikins with Monitor meet all of the requirements as stated by the American Heart Association. Prestan’s Professional Adult CPR/AED Training Manikin with Monitor provides real-time visual feedback with lights in the shoulder area of the manikin that builds student confidence by providing feedback rates in steps. Then, when compressions are 100 to 120 per minute, two green lights appear. If the upper limit of 120 compressions per minute is exceeded, a yellow flashing light will flash on and off. Prestan’s Professional Adult CPR/AED Training Manikin with Monitor also provides real-time audio feedback with a clicker mechanism that emits a loud ‘click’ sound when the torso is compressed to a depth of at least 2 inches. The American Heart Association has not set requirements for Child manikins nor Infant manikins yet – although Prestan’s Professional Child CPR/AED Training Manikins with Monitors and Prestan’s Professional Infant CPR/AED Training Manikins with Monitors provide the same comprehensive feedback mechanism desired by instructors worldwide. Have Prestan Manikins but Need to Upgrade? If you already own Prestan Manikins, without monitors or with the older putty colored monitors, upgrade them today! You can purchase the New Blue Prestan Monitors to easily upgrade all your Prestan Manikins. Available in singles or 4 packs. Build Your Life Saving Confidence With Prestan Professional Manikins! Meet your confidence goals with the SIMPLE, AFFORDABLE, INTEGRATED FEEDBACK of the Prestan Professional Manikins. No wires to connect, No device hookup, No extra equipment, and Feedback is contained within the manikin! Shop our Prestan Professional Manikins About Prestan Manikins Prestan Manikins offer full compliance with the new requirements at affordable pricing (Under $150 for a complete Adult Manikin with Feedback Monitor) where other manikins require expensive ($300+ per manikin) external adapter to upgrade to current standards/requirements.

No matter what the reason - Give life this season! Whether your group is still within the 2 year certification period or not: a refresher course in CPR and First Aid is timely, makes a great gift, and could help keep everyone safe.
