First Aid service coming to the Northern Beaches?

August 14th, 2019

Is First Aid drone technology needed on the Northern Beaches of Sydney? This fast and efficent technology would go a long way to save lives if we can alert the appropriately trained first aid and CPR responders and get them to the scene.

A team of researchers from the University of South Australia and Middle Technical University in Baghdad has designed the system to remotely monitor elderly people, detecting abnormalities in their heart rate and temperature which can lead to falls, and provide urgent first aid via a drone if a fall occurs.

In a new paper published in Sensors, the researchers describe how a wearable device can monitor vital signs using a wireless sensor attached to the upper arm and send a message to an emergency call centre if physiological abnormalities or a fall are detected.

University of South Australia Adjunct Senior Lecturer Dr Ali Al-Naji and Professor Javaan Chahl are part of the research team.

“The system not only correctly measures heart rate and falls with 99 per cent accuracy, but also identifies the elderly person’s location and delivers first aid much faster,” Professor Chahl said.

“When a case is critical, first aid supplies can be delivered to the patient via a drone, up to 105 seconds faster than an ambulance.”

The fall detection device consists of a microcontroller, two bio-sensors, a GPS module to track the location and a GSM module to send a notification to the smartphones of caregivers. The second part includes a first aid package, a smartphone and a drone to deliver the package.

An advanced smartphone-based program that uses an intelligent autopilot, containing a destination waypoint for planning the path of a drone has also been designed as part of the project.

It is estimated that about 30 per cent of adults over the age of 65 experience at least one fall a year, in many cases fracturing a hip, or sustaining head injuries.

The annual global cost of fall-related acute care for older people has risen dramatically in recent years as the world’s population ages.

In Australia, the annual cost exceeds $600 million, and this figure blows out to billions of dollars each year in the United States and other parts of the world.

Northern Beaches NOT trained in First Aid

August 2nd, 2019

FEWER than 5 per cent of Australians are qualified in first aid, sparking an urgent call from emergency services for people to update their skills and save a life.

Red Cross data released yesterday revealed Australia had one of the lowest rates of first-aid training in the world.

Parents were among those singled out as Red Cross ­trainer Janie McCullagh said first-aid skills could save the life of a loved one. “It can be the difference between life and death,” Ms McCullagh said.

“Our program is popular with pregnant ladies and their partners, they come along to learn what to do even before they have children. I think it would be appropriate for all adults to learn whether they are starting a family or not.”

First-aid training helped Seaforth mum Susie Campbell save two lives, including her young son Thomas when he was a baby.

The 43-year-old was taking then-nine-week-old Thomas, now seven, for a walk in a sling when she noticed he wasn’t breathing. She was able to resuscitate­ Thomas using cardio­pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) skills she had learned just a week earlier.

Her first-aid training kicked in again just six months later when she heard her neighbour screaming frantically for help.

“I ran across and my neighbour’s son was turning blue, he had a lollipop stuck in his throat,” Mrs Campbell said.

“I knew I had to get it out because if it went down his throat any more he wouldn’t have been able to breathe.

“I flipped him upside down and all of a sudden it just shot out of his mouth.”

Mrs Campbell said knowing first aid was essential and every parent should make it their responsibility to learn.

“It gave me the confidence to deal with it then and there,” she said. “Without it, it may have been too late.”

Ms McCullagh said at the very minimum people learn CPR, which keeps oxygenated blood pumping through the body — ensuring it reaches the brain and vital organs.

If administered within the first minute after a person’s heart has stopped, their chance of surviving is 80 per cent. “People have to be ready to know what to do,” Ms McCullough said.

Knowing how to stop a critical bleed could also mean the difference between life and death, she said, adding that while first-aid won’t always result in the best outcome it can make a real difference.

“Once you have the knowledge it stays with you for life and gives you the confidence to react in the event of an accident,” she said.

Calls for all university students to learn first aid, as Red Cross warns majority of deaths could be prevented

July 25th, 2019

https://www.independent.co.uk/

What a great article calling for more people to learn first aid. I would like to see the Australian Universities take a lead in this area by providing free first aid courses for all students as part of their courses regardless of the dicipline they are studying.

Please remember that our emergency number is triple zero 000 or 112. All first aid and CPR courses are conducted at the Dee Why RSL, Sydney, Australia.

Your first term at university often coincides with your first time living away from home – and with that comes a torrent of newfound responsibilities and necessary skills. 

Learning first aid is likely to come far below setting up the wifi and sorting out bills in terms of priority. But with shocking new research revealing that 70 per cent of university students lack the confidence to perform simple but potentially life-saving tasks, it’s worth taking a moment to brush up.

Research commissioned by the British Red Cross and conducted by the University of Manchester suggests the majority (59 per cent) of pre-hospital deaths from injury could be prevented if more people stepped in with basic first aid knowledge.

Head of First Aid Education at the leading charity, Joe Mulligan, said: “The good news is that most people are calling 999. But after calling 999 we want students do something in those crucial minutes before the ambulance arrives.

“Sadly in the majority of deaths we looked at, the simplest interventions could have helped keep someone alive. 

“For example something as simple as turning your friend on their side and tilting their head back to keep their airway open – could be all it takes to make that difference between life and death in certain situations”.

Despite 93 per cent of those finding someone with an injury calling for an ambulance, first aid intervention of any kind was infrequent, researchers said. 

Around half of people in this position did not attempt any form of first aid whilst waiting for emergency medical services to arrive. 

The research is the first of its kind to undertaken for 22 years, and is published alongside a campaign for all university students – that’s more than two million people- learn first aid. 

Here’s how to save a life using first aid: 

In case of victim being unresponsive and breathing 

1.    Check breathing by tilting their head backwards and looking and feeling for breaths.

2.    Move them onto their side and tilt their head back (recovery position).

3.    As soon as possible, call 999 or get someone else to do it.

In case of victim being unresponsive and NOT breathing 

1.    Check breathing by tilting their head backwards and looking and feeling for breaths.

2.    Call 999 as soon as possible, or get someone else to do it.

3.    Push firmly downwards in the middle of the chest and then release to perform cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

4.    Push at a regular rate (think of the “staying alive” tune) until help arrives.

In case of heavy bleeding 

1.    Put pressure on the wound with whatever is available to stop or slow down the flow of blood.

2.    Call 999 as soon as possible, or get someone else to do it.

3.    Keep pressure on the wound until help arrives.

CPR Training just became easier on the Northern Beaches

July 22nd, 2019

The amazing Brayden CPR Manikin lets your students see the real point of CPR – getting blood flowing to the brain and other organs.

Using animated LED lights under the skin, your students will see the effect their CPR Compression Depth, Speed and Recoil has as the red LED lights respond to the quality of their technique.

This essential visual learning tool instantly reinforces CPR Trainers instructions to students. The Brayden CPR Manikin’s dual modes help structure CPR training: from learning effective CPR to perfecting CPR technique, in accordance with ARC guidelines.

Three sets of lights give instant feedback:

CHEST COMPRESSION INDICATING LIGHTS

These LEDs represent the volume of blood being circulated by the depth of the chest compressions.

They fully animate when the depth of compressions is over 5cm – too shallow or without full recoil they will only partially illuminate. In Mode 2 (advanced learning) these lights will freeze full-on if compressions are too deep (above 6cm).

BLOOD CIRCULATION INDICATING LIGHTS

These LEDs represent the flow of blood from the heart towards the brain.

The speed of the blood flow shown varies according to the depth and speed of compressions, only fully animating when the depth is effective and compressions are at a rate of 100-120 per minute.

CPR QUALITY INDICATING LIGHTS

These LEDs indicate when bloodflow is reaching the brain.

These will only light when the depth and speed of the compressions are both correct.

Please make a booking with Simple Instruction online via the website. All First aid and CPR courses are available. Public courses are conducted at the Dee Why RSL, Northern Beaches, Sydney.
