First Aid Training

first aid

First Aid Training is provided to enable people with the skills necessary to provide initial care for an illness or injury; it is usually performed by non-expert, but personnel who have had First Aid Training, to a sick or injured person until definitive medical can be accessed. Certain self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.  While first aid can also be performed on all animals, the term generally refers to care of human patients.

The key aims of first aid and first aid training can be summarized in three key points: 

  • Preserve life: the overriding aim of all medical care, including first aid, is to save lives.
  • Prevent further harm: also sometimes called prevent the condition from worsening, or danger of further injury, this covers both external factors, such as moving a patient away from any cause of harm, and applying first aid techniques to prevent worsening of the condition, such as applying pressure to stop a bleed becoming dangerous.
  • Promote recovery: first aid also involves trying to start the recovery process from the illness or injury, and in some cases might involve completing a treatment, such as in the case of applying a plaster to a small wound.

First aid training also involves the prevention of initial injury and responder safety, and the treatment phases.
