The First Aid for Couples course is separated into two parts.
The first part is related to first aid. We will provide knowledge which will help you confidently deal with those accidents which can occur with babies and small children.
How and when to call an ambulance, our recommended items to have in a first aid kit as well as some of the common health hazards found in the home.
You will be able to recognise and provide initial first aid for poisonings, burns, head injuries (concussion), bleeding, fractures (broken bones), allergic reactions, drownings, skin infections and heat related problems.
The second part relates to teaching effective CPR and AED (artificial external defibrillator). Each participant will be practicing this skill on both a child mannequin and a baby mannequin.
Using the same mannequins we will also be learning how to effectively assist a baby and child who is choking.
We encourage open discussion and questions. Please ensure you wear comfortable clothing as we will be doing some practise on the floor. There will be a short 10 minute break between the two sessions.
