There are technical skills that a nurse has to possess and understand when performing resuscitation on a patient. The ARC guidelines have clear stipulations on the CPR process and post CPR care that the nurses must perform. Before CPR begins, the nurse has to access the situation and ask the patient about how they feel and any preexisting conditions that they may suffer from in case the patient is conscious. Once the patient is unconscious CPR should begin as fast as possible. Before the process starts, the nurse has to ensure they clear the airways of the patient. They must also know about the drugs that can be administered to an unconscious patient such as adrenaline and saline (ARC, 2016). The nurses must know how to perform CPR on its own and combined with rescue breaths. The nurse should be aware of how to deliver rescue breaths to unconscious patients and the number of chest compressions to be performed per minute. Nurses should be aware that a fellow nurse can get tired when performing chest compressions, one can get exhausted and therefore, should swap and avoid fatigue. The AED is part of the process, and the nurses must be aware of the guidelines to follow when performing defibrillation and how to merge CPR with AED.
