  • teach others in setting up and applying anaesthesia machines,
  • show others the performance of an ECG,

  • show others the using of blood warmers and infusion warmers,
  • teach others in applying mobilisation and transfer aids (e.g. lifter, transfer trapeze),
  • show others the applying of pulse oximetry (e.g. portable),
  • show others the applying of bladder scans,
  • teach others in using patient warmer systems (e.g. Bair Hugger®),
  • show others the operation of oxygen devices (e.g. portable) and provide oxygen to the patient/client.

  • name steps of functional checks on medical devices,
  • explain the choosing of the correct types of venous and/or arterial lines/sets for catheters,
  • discuss the use of mechanical reanimation equipment versus manual reanimation.
