Week 9: Asking for and Offering Help

This week we are 'asking for help'. In the video above Mr. Bean tries to help a man who has a heart attack ... with very funny results! An emergency like this one, however, is not funny in real life.

What would you do in this situation? Who would you call? What would you say?

Giving 'CPR' (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)

In Term 1 we watched a video called 4 STEPS FOR LIFE (The Ambulance Service and You, Ames/MAS 2007).

ii. Go back to your notes and activities we did last term. Compare them with this British video called HOW TO DO CPR ON AN ADULT. The methods are very similar. Compare your notes and the video.

iii. In the COMMENTS section write instructions on HOW TO GIVE CPR.


With a classmate or friend click through the following presentation (see the little arrow on the Scribd toolbar 1/30). Practice the dialogue ... DO YOU MIND IF
