About Regina First Aid
Basic First Aid
Because of the steadily increasing occurrences of calamities around the world, knowledge about basic first aid is something everybody must have. Skill needed to act quickly in dangerous and unexpected situations can help save a lot of lives. Little accidents at home such as cuts, scrapes, and minor burns can also be treated with a little first aid training. For professional health care providers, first aid is a must if they want to possess competitive skills in the growing health care provider market. From the home to a hospital to out on the street, you can help yourself, a loved one, or a complete stranger with proper first aid training.
The video below is a short instructional video on bandaging sprains, that will be covered in basic first aid training at Regina First Aid.
CPR and AED
Only the latest guidelines and techniques are taught at Regina First Aid. The latest Basic Life Support (BLS) guideline and pathway is used by trainers during CPR and AED training. AEDs are machines able to detect heart rhythms and apply needed shock to restart the heart. Knowledge of these updated skills improve the chances of survival of a victim who has been recognized to experience cardiac arrest. The updated BLS pathway includes activation on the emergency response system of both CPR and AED once a person has collapsed. The image below are two steps emphasized during CPR training.
Trainees enrolled in CPR training will learn to provide CPR and use an AED for victims with the following complications:
- The victim vomits
- The victims shows gastric distension (stomach expands instead of chest during ventilations)
- Difficulty sealing the victim’s mouth during ventilations
- The victim breaths through a stoma (a surgical hole in the victim’s neck)
- The rescuer becomes too tired to continue
- The victim is in water
- The victim is pregnant
