This 4 hours awareness talk will be covering the key element of first aid and its related crucial topics. Apart from theoretical discussion, participants would get a clearer understanding of the topics covered through the demonstration and short practical conducted.
Basic life support (BLS) is a level of medical care which is used for victims of life-threatening illnesses or injuries until they can be given full medical care at a hospital. It can be provided by trained medical personnel, including emergency medical technicians, paramedics, and by qualified bystanders.
Essential First Aid is designed specifically to be an introduction for the beginner thus targeting the community as a whole. In addition, it may as well serves as a knowledge refresher for those who already went for training.
The forgetting curve hypothesizes the decline of memory retention in time and one study shows that the first aider will have difficulty in recalling their training after 3 months has passed. Therefore, a practical refresher would be an excellent booster for the previously acquired first aid skills.
Occupational hazards existed in every workplace. These unwanted events require an immediate organized response from the Emergency Response Team (ERT) with the First Aid Team’s role regarded as one of the most important. First Aid means the initial help that is delivered to the sick and injured by the first responder before the arrival of healthcare personnel.
This course aims to provide additional higher-level modules for Basic First Aiders to increase their competency level and enable them to respond effectively to unique hazards, toxic chemicals or other significant hazards or conditions that could be created in their workplace. It is suitable for non-EMS responders, but desire or require certification in Advanced First Aid.
Certain places pose a more frequent complicated hazard requiring their Emergency Response Team (ERT) to response competently while waiting for the arrival of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS). This advanced course is specifically designed for individuals wishing to further their skills and knowledge in a pre-hospital setting beyond the basic first aider.
