First Aid: Medical Emergencies and CPR


Medical emergencies can occur at any time but may be hidden because of injuries suffered in an accident, or an accident may trigger a medical emergency such as a heart attack, stroke, or seizure. For this reason, it is important that you know the basic emergency techniques for recognizing and treating failures of the respiratory system and heart. This training will focus on the signs and symptoms of specific medical emergencies and their treatment. Being trained in first aid could mean the difference between life and death.

This training should NOT be used as the primary basis for any first aid certification. It is intended to provide the learner with knowledge-based training only and should be accompanied with a performance-based component provided by a qualified instructor.
