First aid training comes in handy for a variety of different situations in life. Being on the spot and responding quickly and effectively when faced with an emergency situation at work such as heart attacks, choking, drowning or electrocution makes First Aiders the heroes of the hour.
For the accident victim, having someone nearby who is expertly trained to administer basic first aid is not only a legal requirement for businesses of all kinds and sizes, it also makes good community and commercial sense.
Among the major benefits of first aid are the following: It affords people with the ability to provide help during various emergency situations. If someone ingests hazardous substances, or suffers health-related issues like a heart attack, or if a natural disaster occurs, a person knowledgeable in first aid becomes more than just another bystander. Instead, they become an invaluable support not only to victims, but also to professional emergency responders and medical practitioners. First aid helps ensure that the right methods of administering medical assistance are provided. Knowing how to help a person is just as important in emergency situations. It only takes six minutes for the human brain to expire due to lack of oxygen. As such, ineptitude and misinformation will not be of much help to a person in need of medical assistance. Knowledge in first aid also benefits the individuals themselves. Whether the emergency affects themselves directly, or involves people they live and work with, first aid stems the severity of an emergency in a given time and place.
Defibrillation involves delivery of an electric shock to the patient’s chest. The shock travels through the chest to stop V-Fib so that the heart can recommence its normal rhythm. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a machine that analyzes a patient’s heart rhythm. If the AED recognizes V-Fib, the AED will tell the provider to press a button that will deliver a shock to the patient. The AED will not allow a shock to be delivered unless it recognizes V-Fib (ventricular fibrillation).
AEDs (automated external defibrillators) are proven to save lives and are therefore an invaluable addition to health and safety provision for your employees. Once one is installed in your workplace, we highly recommend you train personnel in its usage. Defibrillators training: Training in how and why you would use a defibrillator, the use of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) for adults and children to prevent choking and how to use a pocket mask.
