Adam Rowstron Courses
Basic Life Support (BLS)
We start the course with a look at the legislation about first aid and settle any myths that people may have, particularly about people fearing legal action or personal injury claims if they administer first aid or administer first aid incorrectly. Students are given an awareness of the ‘Good Samaritan Legislation’
The course covers how to deal with a non-breathing or an unresponsive person.
We cover scene assessment, how to stay safe and how to assess a person’s level of response, how to check and clear an airway, how to check if someone is breathing efficiently, how to do good CPR and how to put someone into the recovery position.
This is a good course to learn the bare minimum to support life awaiting the emergency services.
Emergency First Aid at Work
This is an accredited course and covers everything on the BLS course as well as the ‘role of the first-aider’ including reference to the importance of preventing cross infection, the need for recording incidents and actions, the use of available equipment, how to assess a situation and act safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency.
The course also teaches how to administer first aid to a person who is unconscious, including CPR. The students also learn how to administer first aid to someone who is choking, bleeding, suffering from shock, seizure or has a minor injury such as a small cut, graze or a burn.
First Aid at Work (FAW)
The First Aid at Work accredited course is very popular and covers a wide range of topics including everything on the Emergency First Aid Course as described above but also includes awareness of how to deal with asthma attacks, strokes, diabetic emergencies, allergic reactions and anaphylaxis, spinal injuries, heart attacks and angina, chest injuries and poisoning.
This course is extremely good value for money and is a must for anyone who really wants to learn a bit extra.
AED (Automated External Defibrillator)
Ideally this course should be added on to one of the above courses but can be given as a standalone course should the students already have training in Basic Life Support as a minimum.
Students will learn how to use an AED and will gain a useful insight into what happens to a heart and the rest of the body during cardiac arrest, CPR and when a shock is administered.
AED’s are getting more and more common place and can be found in shopping centres, librarys, some supermarkets, train stations, sports centres and gyms, bus stations, doctors and dentists surgeries and many other publicly available places.
They really should be in every school in the country as well, they are easy to use and absolutely fool proof. They are designed to be used by someone even without training, but to make the most use of them it is always advised to have a training course in how they work and how to use it safely.
