First Aid is a skill in Sydney and Melbourne that carries value across the board. Medical emergencies happen any time, in the Bahamas, in a bar or at AFL. Here are compelling reasons to get these globally valued skills.
Helping A Friend
88% of cardiac arrests are at home and often don’t happen to older people nor people with heart problem histories. If a friend experiences a medical issue, you are the superhero who helps them until medical services arrive.
Your Create Long Term Benefits
Immediate first aid action can reduce a friend’s recovery time. Knowing what to do if YOU or others are hurt puts you into auto-pilot mode, making you more effective in a stressful situation.
A quick response is often crucial for survival and reduces infection rates in instances like these:
Cuts or scrapes: You can prevent dangerous blood loss for large injuries.
Burns: You can minimise blistering or scarring, and minimise shock complications while medics race to the scene.
Broken bones: You can protect broken bones from impacting arteries or nerves, avoiding severe or life-threatening injury.
Cardiac Arrest: Research into medical emergencies shows 45% of people survived cardiac arrest because a bystander knew First Aid.
Additional Benefits: Injured people are stressed and/or scared. Acting with confidence puts the patient at ease which is good for them, good for their family or colleagues, and good for the injury and/or any arriving medical team. And so your superhero status starts.
There’s a global shortage of First Aid qualified people even though quality training is available in every city.
Research has shown some scary statistics:
94% of UK adults can’t save lives in first aid emergencies, and 70% can’t help someone who has collapsed, is unresponsive and breathing, or is bleeding heavily. 80% of adults can’t help a choking baby.
The world’s least trained citizens (in First Aid) are…Australians! 4.8% can help in a medical emergency.
18% of Canadians are certified, and 45% have the skills to provide life-saving first aid.
When you are qualified, you will be more confident, and you will be immeasurably relieved when the time comes to save the life of a loved one, friend or colleague whether it’s a fall in a cycling race, a burn at a barbeque or collapsing at work.
