This course will enable you to:
Identify and manage any immediate life threatening situations, eg no breathing, choking, major bleeding, etc.
Identify and assess any possible life threatening problems, e.g. shock, internal bleeding, head injuries, unconsciousness, severe allergic reactions to bee/wasp stings or foods.
Deal with fractures and determine when a student with a medical condition (asthma, diabetes, epilepsy etc.) needs to be seen by a doctor or an ambulance needs to be called.
Care for a student until help arrives.
This is a very hands-on and interactive course with lots of practical exercises. This is achieved with CPR manikins, by working in pairs and also with practical scenarios where participants work in small groups to deal with mock patients.
