First aid courses teach you how to treat injuries and medical conditions that are common in everyday life. They cover topics such as bleeding, shock, burns, poisoning, and sprains. If you’ve ever had to perform first aid or attended classes, you might also want to brush up on your CPR techniques. There are several types of first aid courses available. These include basic first aid (for minor injuries), advanced first aid (which covers more serious situations), and emergency care (which trains you to deal with major incidents). First aid courses are offered worldwide to anyone who wants to learn basic skills such as bleeding control, CPR, wound care treatment, etc.
First aid is an essential part of everyday life. Knowing how to perform basic first aid measures is important to ensure safety. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that everyone over age 15 complete a first aid course.
First aid courses
1. First Aid Course
The first aid course is basically for emergencies where someone may have been injured on your premises. You should know what to do if anyone gets hurt. You should always know how to perform CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) in case any person is unconscious or not breathing. If you don’t know how to perform CPR, then seek help from an expert who does know. Don’t panic! Keep calm and take action.
2. Hand Washing
When washing your hands, make sure that you wash them thoroughly under running water. Make sure that you get rid of soap residue. Use a clean towel to dry off your hands after you finish. When getting ready to go out, you should start with your feet and work your way up. Wash your face and ears last before leaving the house. In addition to washing your hands, you should also wash your feet each time you step outside. Remember to keep your
fingernails trimmed. Fingernails can easily become dirty and infected. Once you’ve got some food inside your belly, make sure to eat a snack before going home.
3. Bleeding Control
Bleeding control is vital in treating injuries. Bleeding control can save lives in times of emergencies. If you try to stop bleeding yourself, you could cause further damage. Instead, call 911 immediately. Do not use bandages to close wounds. Bandages can actually worsen the wound. Make sure to apply pressure to the wound to stop blood flow. Apply ice packs around your injury to reduce pain and swelling. After applying ice packs, wrap them with a cloth to prevent the area from becoming cold. Wrap the gauze tightly and place it on a flat surface. Remove the cloth once the bleeding stops. Do not attempt using alcohol over open cuts. Alcohol can burn skin and even lead to infection.
4. Poisonous Plants
Poisonous plants can be dangerous and deadly. Always remember to stay away from poisonous plants. If you accidentally encounter one of these plants, make sure to contact professionals immediately. If you suspect that someone has ingested one of these plants, then you need to act fast. Try calling 911 right away. Do not delay and wait until EMS arrives. Call the Poison Center first. These numbers are either listed on the back of your phone or the internet.
5. Poison Control Center Number
The poison control number is available on the back of your cell phone. If you don’t know what number to dial, you can look online or ask a family member or friend. Don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1 if you think you might have ingested something, or have a reaction to anything. Also, know that drugs are often put in foods or drinks that kids may eat or drink unknowingly. A parent or caregiver needs to watch closely and be aware of what their children are eating and drinking. Kids can also ingest things like household cleaners that they find interesting.
Cleanup is very important. Especially when dealing with hazardous substances.
First Aid Course – In-House Training
In-home first aid courses at your premise, we cover everything from the basics about wounds and their treatment, to CPR, basic splinting, and treating shock. Not only does this make our job easier, but it’ll also help everyone stay safe as they’re working.
We talk about allergies, burns, cuts and scrapes, colds and flu, dental emergencies, dehydration, insect bites, snakebites, sunburn, suicide attempts, stings and sprains, spider bites, strangulation emergencies, syncope (fainting), tetanus shots, and many more situations where learning to treat yourself is critical.
This is the same type of training we give to students before they start school. We want them to know how to look after themselves if something happens. This is a really good thing to know in case you get hurt while out in the fields or doing anything else.
