Standard First Aid/AED
You need an advanced course that will allow you to assume a prehospital medical care provider role during emergency situations?
With this comprehensive training, you will easily recognize abnormal signs and symptoms and be able to apply the necessary emergency measures.
In 16 hours, you will deepen your knowledge of various topics, such as clinical evaluation of a victim and the treatments to apply in case of priority emergency (respiratory emergency, cardiovascular emergency, cardiopulmonary arrest, etc.) and secondary emergency (convulsions, problems related to glycemia, environmental problems, etc.). Moreover, you will learn to use an automated external defibrilator (AED), to administer epinephrin using an autoinjector and to proceed to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on an adult, child or infant.
This course can be adapted according to the participants’ needs.
