- SVB (Basic Life Support) CPR and rescue breaths at a non-professional level.
- Use of the AED (automatic external defibrillator) (optional)
- Prevention and treatment of a shock.
- Management of spinal injuries.
- Use of barriers to reduce the risk of disease transmission.
- Considerations on basic first aid and first aid equipment.
The learning materials you need
Through a combination of independent study and practical exercises with an instructor, you will build the confidence and skills to provide basic emergency care. The Primary and Secondary Care Manual and the DVD video preview emergency scenarios and provide step-by-step skills demonstrations.
The Emergency First Response consultation chart is a quick reference guide for emergency situations. Designed to be placed in a compartment such as a glove compartment or backpack, the consultation pad (Care at a Glance card) is an important component for any first aid episode or to prepare a catastrophe kit.
