First Aid

First Aid

On Tuesday the 10th of October, we did a first aid course. Tom and Joanne from Pulse 8 came in with equipment to teach us how to act if someone needed first aid. We were shown how to use a defibrillator, how to preform CPR, how to wrap a Brocken arm and how to treat burns. I thought the course was run very well as we would be told how to do a certain procedure and then we would get a chance use the skills practically. For example, we got told how to operate a defibrillator and then Pulse 8 had practise defibrillators that we used on dummies. We also practised the recovery position on our friends. In my opinion this was the most beneficial thing we learned as it could happen to anyone without any notice. Because of our completion of the course, we will receive a certificate that can be used for our CVs.
