Our First Aid Course in Brisbane is an essential course that will allow you to develop the skills and knowledge, but most importantly the confidence to provide assistance to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury.  With the appropriate care provided to the patient you will develop the skills to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, and promote recovery.  It includes initial intervention in a patient with a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing CPR while awaiting an ambulance, as well as the complete treatment of minor conditions, such as applying compression bandages open wounds.

Basic principles, such as knowing how to use an adhesive bandage or applying direct pressure on a bleed, are often acquired passively through life experiences.  However, to provide effective, life-saving first aid interventions requires instruction and practical training.  This is especially true where it relates to potentially fatal illnesses and injuries, such as those that require Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR); these procedures may be invasive, and carry a risk of further injury to the patient and the provider.  As with any training, it is more useful if the training occurs before an actual emergency.

First aid is generally provided with the assistance of others, and is followed by medical care. It can be used in prevention of disease and injury, as well as to provide relief from minor illnesses and conditions such as headaches or insect bites. First aid also includes the skills that allow a person to deal with a sick or injured person until medical help arrives.

First aid is the immediate care given to a person who is injured, unconscious or in need of urgent medical attention. It is generally performed by someone with basic medical training. Mental health first aid is an extension of the concept of first aid to cover mental health and psychological illness, while psychological first aid  is used as early treatment of people who are at risk of developing PTSD.

First aid is a vital skill set that can be used to keep someone alive until professional help arrives. In the event of an emergency, it’s better to have some basic knowledge than none at all. Here are some important first aid tips to consider:

Call 000 (or 112 via mobile) – If someone needs medical attention, call 000 immediately. This is the best way to get them the help they need in time.

Anybody can learn the basics of first aid, and the numbers are staggering.

There are on average 7610 calls per day and 90% of them are for non-life threatening emergencies.

It takes an average of 11 minutes for an ambulance to arrive at the scene in a life-threatening emergency.
