On Monday, we had an evening of First Aid Training ahead of our upcoming expeditions and summer activities. We focused on:

  1. Life support: The principles of first aid and initial response (arriving and managing an incident), emergency life support, CPR (including technique for children and an explanation of what AED is and how to use it), management of an unconscious casualty (child and adult), and choking. 
  2. Trauma and injury: Shock, bleeding, fractures (ambulance imminent and non-imminent) and sprains, head injuries, dental incidents, and burns.
  3. Major illnesses: Asthma, anaphylaxis, heart attack, stroke, seizures, diabetes, sepsis and meningitis.

Everyone got fully involved and we hope you never have to use these skills in reality but they are a #skillforlife!
