What Is First Aid?
First aid can be defined as giving quick medical assistance to a sick or injured person until professional help can arrive and provide full medical care. This covers various situations with something as simple as dressing minor wounds to more complex situations like providing aid to someone who’s suffering from an asthma attack.
These emergency measures can help a victim with the initial distress and make a big difference until they can be brought to a facility for proper medical attention. Australia Wide First Aid specialises in teaching individuals the basic skills in first aid and identifying the steps needed to handle such a situation.
Different Types of First Aid
We understand that various situations call for different types of first aid. As such, we at Australia Wide First Aid offer a variety of courses that cover various medical emergencies. Each course has designated durations to learn all the basic competencies, as well as a give students that proper accreditation in providing first aid to those who need it.
Specific types of first aid situations call for nuanced learning. Here are some of the more specialised first aid courses that we offer.
Providing First Aid – Students develop the skills needed to provide first aid to an ill or injured individual. This can apply to medical casualties in either the workplace or a community setting. Retraining is recommended every three years.
Providing Basic Life Support – This course covers the skills and knowledge necessary to identify a life threatening situation and how to respond to it. Information learned here follows the guidelines laid out by the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC). Renewal of training is recommended every three years.
CPR Training – Each student learns the skills required to perform Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation in both the community and workplace settings. ARC recommends renewing training for this particular course every twelve months.
Performing Rescue from a Live LV Panel – Students learn the skills needed to perform rescue procedures from a live LV apparatus. The training also covers all processes involving the health, safety, and risk management of performing a rescue from a live LV panel in a workplace environment. This training is typically given to those working in the electrical sector and can be integrated with their respective company’s workplace safety regulations. Renewing training in this course is recommended every twelve months.
Asthma and Anaphylaxis – Upon completion of the course, the student is able to give first aid intervention to those suffering from either asthma or anaphylaxis attacks. This includes procedures such as coming up with a asthma management plan for the workplace, proper use of administering an auto-injector (Epi-Pen), and developing other risk management and risk minimisation strategies for such situations. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) acknowledges these courses as fulfilling the requirements for workplace Asthma and Anaphylaxis management, respectively. It is recommended to renew training for both courses every three years.
Difference between Standard First Aid and Emergency First Aid
There are many competencies shared between the two different courses. Each course teaches the basics in terms of providing first aid and basic life support, with an option to include CPR in the training course.
However, the major differences between the two lie mostly in their duration and the scope of situations that each handles. In particular, Emergency First Aid trains students in providing specialized first aid to infants, children, and adults in various emergency situations.
There are also Emergency First Aid courses that are specifically designed for staff that work in the education and the care setting. These particular courses meet the requirements of ACECQA, as well as the Education and Care Service National Law and the Education and Care Services National Regulations of 2011. Students of this course are recommended to renew their training every three years.
Australia Wide First Aid aims to become a driving force in providing proper First Aid training solutions to everyone in the country. In doing so, we are able to perpetuate the values of becoming a Good Samaritan to our fellow man in times of need.
