This week, I was back to deliver the second half of a REC Life Saver and Heartstart First Aid Course. We recapped on the topics of the first week (vital signs, causes of unconsciousness, accident protocols, recovery position and CPR). The topics for todays session were airway problems (asthma and choking), circulatory problems (shock, external bleeding & heart attacks) and the participants answered a short question paper. There was excellent feedback from both courses with everyone wanting to practice, learn and do more.
The courses have been delivered for the Shropshire Wildlife Trust, who as part of their Growing Confidence Initiative are delivering an alternative curriculum for a local school and hopefully more courses will follow.
