This portfolio will provide a reflective essay on the writers practice whilst providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation in a simulated scenario, demonstrated whilst using the Gibbs cycle of reflection model. The Immediate Life Support (ILS) certificate will be included into the portfolio at the end, for proof of completion of this course. A critical analysis of the early warning scoring systems currently used in clinical practice will be undertaken, focusing mainly on the National Early Warning System (NEWS), in an attempt to uncover the benefits as well as the disadvantages of this tool.

The participants on the day consisted of nurses at different levels in their career, most of the nurses were at the early stages of their careers and were taking part in their first (ILS) course, whereas I , as a senior nurse had taken part in several. Gibbs (1988) Reflective cycle is the model chosen to conduct this reflective account and will be delivered
using this framework. This framework I have used before and find it uncomplicated to navigate through the steps of reflection. I was a participant in a simulated scenario of an in-patient cardiac arrest resuscitation response team, practiced on a test mannequin. The team leader delegated tasks to the team involved, at the same time, making me responsible with the role of commencing chest compressions, a role I have taken part in many times on patients in my place of work. The cardiac arrest was called and I immediately commenced chest compressions on the mannequin, whilst the other members of the team carried out their roles. I found myself being easily distracted, focusing more on what others were doing instead of focusing on my own role, and this resulted with an inadequate delivery of chest compressions. The trainer on the course stopped the session and provided me with a demonstration of how to properly deliver chest compressions, and a detailed explanation in the importance of effective, high quality chest compressions.
