Description

Emergency First Aid Fundamentals is happening on Saturday, December 03, 2022 at 09:00AM CST at 1020 Cedar Ave with tickets starting at $100.00

Course Description:

Would you know what to do if you were deep in the wilderness and a shooting companion sustained a penetrating chest wound from an errant round? Could you prolong the life of a loved one long enough for the ambulance to arrive, if he or she had sustained a lacerated artery from a violent attacker armed with a knife? While most Americans are comfortable dealing with the cuts and scrapes of everyday life, and tens of thousands have learned the Heimlich maneuver and CPR, most individuals would be a bit less comfortable dealing with severe, life-threatening injuries or illnesses when seconds count and EMS personnel and the emergency room are minutes (or longer) away.

It might seem unrealistic to compare what professional EMTs and paramedics are able to do with the things that non-professionals would be capable of, but in life threatening medical and trauma situations it all boils down to the same thing — sustaining the life of the patient until he or she can be delivered to the emergency room.

Course Goal:
