Our accredited First Aid Training teaches you about the DRSABCD protocol. It’s a way of responding to medical emergencies that you can memorise. You think of DRSABCD as Drs Abcd. The letters stand for Danger, Response, Send, Airway, Breathing, CPR and Defibrillator. These represent the steps you follow in an emergency. The first thing to do is check for danger. Then you see if the casualty responds. Next, you send for emergency services. After that, you make sure the airways are clear. Then check that they are breathing and start CPR if necessary. The last thing you do is use the defibrillator.
As well as this, you practise CPR by kneeling on the floor and pushing on a manikin. We teach you according to Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) guidelines. Managing asthma is another important part of the course, along with knowing how to use an EpiPen in case of anaphylaxis, you will be equipped to effectively respond to the most common emergencies. Such critical skills and knowledge are essential for aged care workers, healthcare professionals and nurses. But anyone benefits from this first aid training because emergencies happen anywhere. In summary, this course prepares you with the skills and knowledge required to respond effectively in a medical emergency.
