First Aid Training With Meditrain

On one of the coldest Saturday mornings we met at school to complete our first aid training together. Ged led the charge with lots of action stories of his time as a medic. We were keen to make sure that we could revive the mannequins even though they were freezing too.
Things have changed a little in the immediate response to an accident and injury. I had no idea that we didn't have to stop a head injury person from sleeping but that it was more important to take a baseline of responsiveness and then to rouse them every 15 minutes and note any changes.
Now CPR is 30 to 2 no matter who and it has to be faster than to the tune of "Staying Alive."
Once again we are up to speed with first response to an accident at school.
