What Is First Aid?
First aid refers to the administration of immediate care to an ill or injured individual until professional medical help arrives.
First aid SKILLS can serve the purpose of treating a minor condition, such as dressing a small wound. However, in more serious cases, they are provided with the intention of administering preliminary care until such time when the sick or injured person is attended to by emergency and medical professionals.
First aid is typically given in order to prevent a condition from getting worse, to provide comfort, and quicken the recovery of an affected individual, and to preserve life. Saving lives is particularly true for first aid techniques, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
The Benefits of Learning First Aid in Sydney
Learning First Aid in Sydney — or anywhere else for that matter — is a vital skill that may just save someone’s life. But did you know that the benefits of providing First Aid go far beyond only saving a life?
In many cases, providing immediate assistance helps speed up a person’s recovery. When First Aid is not administered immediately, the health of a casualty can deteriorate rapidly.
By completing a First Aid Course, you’ll be equipped with precious knowledge and skills that could help preserve someone’s quality of life. First Aid can make all the difference for someone at work or at home.
Entry requirements are pretty simple. Students need to be at least 14 years of age to attend our First Aid courses.
First Aid training plays an invaluable role in creating safe and healthy communities. And although we believe that people should learn First Aid as early as possible, not everyone under 14 years of age has sufficient physical strength to perform some of the vital practical techniques taught, such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
For these reasons, we require all students, regardless of age, to have the physical ability to administer resuscitation by performing uninterrupted CPR while kneeling on the floor for 2 minutes.
Students who are under the age of 18 are required to provide signed parental/guardian consent at enrolment.
Types of First Aid Courses
“First aid” is an umbrella term that is used to refer to different types of medical responses that are administered to casualties in various situations.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation – CPR is an emergency response technique that blends together chest compressions and artificial ventilation to enable flow of oxygenated blood to major organs after their breathing or heartbeat has stopped. These techniques are covered under the HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation unit of competency.
First Aid (General) – Provide First Aid is an Australian training unit that applies to individuals who may be required to administer First Aid to affected individuals, particularly in community and workplace settings. Students will be required to complete tasks such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, regurgitating and vomiting management, care for an unconscious breathing casualty, and appropriate use of an automated external defibrillator.
Students will also learn about various other First Aid techniques such as fracture, sprain, managing bites and stings through pressure immobilisation technique (PIT), allergy and anaphylaxis management, control of bleeding, airway obstruction and choking management, asthma and respiratory distress, and shock management.
Basic Emergency Life Support – Provide Basic Emergency Life Support is an Australian training unit that applies to individuals who may be required to provide emergency response in a variety of scenarios. Some of the tasks for which students are assessed include: single rescuer cardiopulmonary resuscitation, regurgitation or vomiting response, management of unconscious breathing casualty, proper use of automated external defibrillator, and first aid management for the following conditions: allergic reaction, shock, bleeding, choking and airway obstruction, anaphylaxis, and asthma and other types of respiratory distress. Providing an emergency first aid response.
This course is specifically designed for those people working with children. It covers all the same units as our Provide CPR and our Provide First Aid courses but also contains an additional unit focussing on first aid applied to infants and children.
High quality First Aid Training is crucial in creating safe and healthy communities. When people know and are confident in providing First Aid, they are empowered to deal with emergency situations like a pro.
