I have been getting all kinds of health certifications for my new job (watch out Dr. Quinn-Medicine Woman). Earlier this week was CPR training, which consisted of 4 hours of pushing on a dummy’s chest then taking test that covered everything we didn’t learn during the 4 hours of pressing on a dummy’s chest.
The instructor’s favorite part was making people ask the dummy if they were “Ok.” Yes, I know you would do this in real life but asking a plastic half man if he is OK 85 times in front of a room of strangers is awkward.
At one point we practiced with the baby cpr dummy’s.
It was a bit creepy because it reminded me of Olive! This made things scary and weird for me. I felt like I was watching a room of people press on my baby!
The other great part of the class was our workbook. It taught us things like how to perform cpr on MLK jr.
So, next time you are having a heart attack or choking on a chicken bone, give me a call.
