Teaching basic first aid in schools will be compulsory by 2020 but schools will be supported if they want to start earlier.

Plans to teach basic first aid in schools have been welcomed by the British Heart Foundation.

The charity calls the move a “decisive moment in the battle to improve cardiac arrest survival rates”.

There are 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in the UK every year and fewer than 10% of these people survive.

The survival rates double, however, in countries where CPR is taught in schools.

Now the government says that from 2020 learning those key skills should be mandatory for every pupil.

By the time they leave secondary school, all youngsters in England will have been taught how to administer CPR, the purpose of defibrillators, and basic treatments for common injuries.

Education Secretary Damian Hinds said: “Learning the basic skills of first aid and techniques like CPR will give young people the confidence to know that they can step in to help someone else in need and in the most extreme cases – it could potentially save a life.

“That’s why we took the decision to include health education alongside relationship education for primary school children and relationship and sex education for secondary children.

“These subjects are a crucial part of our work to ensure children learn the wider skills they need to flourish in the modern world.”

“Introducing CPR lessons into health education in all state-funded secondary schools is a significant step that promises to improve the odds of survival for countless people who have a cardiac arrest in the future.”

The government says it will offer support to schools who want to introduce the scheme this year, before it becomes compulsory in 2020.

The woman was swimming at Aldinga Beach when she ran into trouble at around 7.30pm yesterday.

A nearby swimmer noticed the woman struggling and dragged her from the water, with an off-duty paramedic then rushing to her aid.

“He went down and just started working on her and the response from the emergency services was just fantastic.”

Young footballer’s sudden death shocks small Victorian town

A young country football player is being mourned after collapsing and dying at the end of a match near Ballarat yesterday.

The man, aged in his 20s, had just finished a match at Learmonth oval when he told team mates he wasn’t feeling well.

Shortly after 4.00pm, he walked over to the sidelines where he collapsed.

Paramedics and club staff made efforts to revive the Dunnstown Football Club player, but he died at the scene.

The Central Highlands Football League released a statement saying “members are shocked at the tragic death of a Dunnstown reserves player”.

The statement said the man, whose name has not been released, collapsed at the end of a game and that nothing within the match led to the player’s death.

“Despite the best efforts of club staff and paramedics he was not able to be saved,” the statement read.

The organisation also offered support to members affected by the tragedy.

In May, 22-year-old Tory Brunning was playing a rugby match in Sydney’s Illawarra region when he collapsed in the sheds during half-time.

He was unable to be revived.

Last month, Liam Birch a young AFL player in Wallan, Victoria, suffered a heart attack on the field in the middle of a match.

One of the spectators was able to save his life by performing CPR on the young man.

No further information has been released on the man’s health or any prior medical conditions from yesterday’s tragedy.

The club has requested the privacy of the player’s family be respected at this difficult time.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious and a report will now be prepared for the coroner.

First Aid and CPR Safety Tip – Sydney Northern Beaches

June 19th, 2018

First Aid Course. Book your training today. Nationally Recognised Certificate. Excellent Provider. Great Location. We Come to You.

Even though running isn’t a contact sport, injuries and accidents can happen. There are few things worse than a gravel-encrusted knee or a muscle cramp that takes you out of the game. But what do you do if you’re far from home with limited resources when they happen?

Here are eight first aid tips every runner should know about and carry with them, whether you’re just going out for three easy miles on back roads or you’re racing a 50K on the trails.

1. Clean Cuts and Scrapes Right Away
One wrong step can lead to an open cut that derails your run, and although it’s tempting to push through, you should tend to it first. “The best thing to do is stop the bleeding, and clean and protect the area,” says Katie Lawton, an exercise physiologist in Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy at the Cleveland Clinic.

Jacob Erickson, a sports medicine physician at the Mayo Clinic, agrees. “Make sure to clean the area as soon as you are able with hydrogen peroxide or warm, soapy water. If you only have a bottle of water, that water will suffice,” he says. “Use some type of antibiotic ointment or plain petroleum jelly to keep the area moist. You can keep it exposed if it’s not draining, otherwise keep it covered until the drainage stops or is better controlled.”

If you don’t have supplies readily available, Lawton suggests using a T-shirt—especially if the wound is gushing. “Tear off a piece of your shirt and tie it on the area for compression,” she says.

2. Don’t Pop Your Blisters
We know: It’s the most tempting thing in the world to pop a blister, but it’s best to leave it alone. “To cut or ‘pop’ the blister can increase infection risk,” says Patrick Lank, M.D., assistant professor of emergency medicine at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

Cleaning your blister off with water can also make things worse, according to Lawton, because the combination of sweat and water has the potential to create more blisters. Instead, use gel blister pads or petroleum jelly to speed up healing.

3. Stay Hydrated
It’s easy for newbies and even experienced runners to lose track of hydration as factors like heat and humidity change. “Severe dehydration can cause lightheadedness, loss of consciousness, and confusion,” Lank says. “If you feel you are becoming dehydrated, it’s best to stop running, rehydrate, and give yourself time.”

You may also experience muscle cramps if you’re dehydrated, Lank adds. If this happens, Corey Wencl, L.A.T., athletic trainer at the Mayo Clinic, suggests you stop running and stretch the muscle out or massage it for some relief.

To prevent dehydration, Lawton recommends having salt or electrolyte tablets on hand—they’re easy to add to your water bottle. However, “be aware that some gel packets have caffeine, which is also a diuretic, and could be a cause for dehydration,” she says.

4. Always Apply Sunscreen
Lawton says applying SPF prerun is a must. But if you do end up with a bad burn, your first move is to get out of the sun. “Find a way to properly cover up your skin or seek shade,” she says. If it’s too late, you can find sunburn relief with aloe vera spray with lidocaine. “Do not use petroleum jelly, as this can trap the heat in that the body is trying to release,” she says. Drinking a lot of water is also key because burns can increase your risk of dehydration, adds Lank.

5. Stock Your Car With Supplies
You can’t realistically carry every first aid product with you on your run, but make sure to keep a kit in your car. “Have a single-use ice pack or elastic bandage on hand for bad sprains,” Lawton says. You also can’t go wrong with some Band-Aids, blister pads, and chafing cream.

6. Run With a Friend
It may sound obvious, but running solo can be risky in case of an emergency. So if you plan to run a more remote route, ask a friend to go along, suggests Wencl. If not, you can utilize safety features in certain apps and phones to have a close friend or family member keep track of you during your run.

7. Let Someone Know Your Plans
When running solo, be sure to share your specific plans. “Let family members know what time to expect you home by and the location where you will be running, especially if you don’t like running with your phone,” Lawton says.

8. Know When to Call 911
“If you lose consciousness while running, you should immediately seek medical attention,” Lank says. The same goes for a friend or running partner. “And if you develop abnormal chest pain or difficulty breathing, you should immediately stop running call 911 to be brought to the hospital for evaluation.”

THIS guy is lucky to be alive – but otherwise he has the worst luck imaginable, after a series of terrifying run-ins with deadly animals.

WHEN Dylan McWilliams was bitten by a shark in Hawaii on Thursday, it meant he had been bitten by a shark, a bear and a rattlesnake — all in less than four years.

“I don’t know,” Mr McWilliams told the Honolulu Star-Advertiseron Friday. “I’m either really lucky or really unlucky.”

Not surprisingly, the 20-year-old from Grand Junction says he spends a lot of time outdoors.

In Thursday’s attack, about 50m from Shipwreck’s Beach off Poipu, Mr McWilliams suffered deep cuts to one of his legs, but the injury wasn’t life-threatening, reports Fox News.

“The scariest part was swimming back,” he told the news outlet, adding that he was hoping the shark wouldn’t continue following the trail of blood from his leg.

The leg wound required seven stitches, the Star-Advertiser reported.

Last July, McWilliams told the paper, he received nine staples in his scalp after a nearly 140kg bear invaded his Colorado campsite.

“The bear grabbed the back of my head and started pulling me and I was fighting back as best as I could,” he told Hawaii News Now. “It dropped me and stomped on me a little bit, and I was able to get back to the group and they scared it away.”

As for the rattlesnake, that encounter occurred about three-and-a-half years ago in Utah, Mr McWilliams told the Star-Advertiser.

Luckily, he took in only a small amount of venom, so he was only briefly ill afterwards, he told the newspaper.

“My parents are grateful I’m still alive,” he said.
