CPR training courses in schools.

January 6th, 2019

The Northern Beaches community would be happy if first aid and CPR was taught in all high schools across the Manly Warringah area. Simple Instruction already teaches Narrabeen Sports High School Year 11 students first aid and Year 8 students CPR.

Book in with Simple Instruction for a HLTAID003 Provide First Aid course, HLTAID001 Provide CPR course or the HLTAID004 Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting. All courses are held at the Dee Why RSL. www.simpleinstruction.com.au

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.

First Aid Care for treating Sunburn – Northern Beaches First Aid and CPR

January 9th, 2017

We know, you didn’t mean to get sunburned. You lost track of time, or nodded off, and now you can tell you’re going to be lobster-red and miserable. It can take several hours for the full damage to show itself. So at the first sign, get out of the sun and follow this expert advice from dermatologist Jeffrey Brackeen, MD, a member of The Skin Cancer Foundation.

Nobody’s perfect, and a sunburn can happen. But it’s important to take it seriously and stop it from happening again. Your risk for melanoma doubles if you’ve had more than five sunburns.

1. Act Fast to Cool It Down

If you’re near a cold pool, lake or ocean, take a quick dip to cool your skin, but only for a few seconds so you don’t prolong your exposure. Then cover up and get out of the sun immediately. Continue to cool the burn with cold compresses. You can use ice to make ice water for a cold compress, but don’t apply ice directly to the sunburn. Or take a cool shower or bath, but not for too long, which can be drying, and avoid harsh soap, which might irritate the skin even more.

2. Moisturize While Skin Is Damp

While skin is still damp, use a gentle moisturizing lotion (but not petroleum or oil-based ointments, which may trap the heat and make the burn worse). Repeat to keep burned or peeling skin moist over the next few days.

3. Decrease the Inflammation

At the first sign of sunburn, taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as ibuprofen, naproxen or aspirin, can help with discomfort and inflammation, says Dr. Brackeen, who practices at the Skin Cancer Institute in Lubbock, Texas. You can continue with the NSAIDs as directed till the burn feels better. You can also use a 1 percent over-the-counter cortisone cream as directed for a few days to help calm redness and swelling. Aloe vera may also soothe mild burns and is generally considered safe. Wear loose, soft, breathable clothing to avoid further skin irritation, and stay out of the sun.

4. Replenish Your Fluids

Burns draw fluid to the skin’s surface and away from the rest of the body, so you may become dehydrated, explains Dr. Brackeen. It’s important to rehydrate by drinking extra liquids, including water and sports drinks that help to replenish electrolytes, immediately and while your skin heals.

5. See a Doctor If …

You should seek medical help if you or a child has severe blistering over a large portion of the body, has a fever and chills, or is woozy or confused. Don’t scratch or pop blisters, which can lead to infection. Signs of infection include red streaks or oozing pus.

Bottom line: Your skin will heal, but real damage has been done. “Repeat sunburns put you at a substantial risk for skin cancer and premature skin aging, and I want people to ‘learn from the burn,’” Dr. Brackeen says. Review the guidelines in The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Prevention Handbook. Remember how bad this sunburn felt, then commit to protecting yourself from the sun every day, all year long.

Sunburn and other relevant first aid treatments are taught in Simple Instruction courses. Simple Instruction is located locally on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and is based at the Dee Why RSL (DYRSL). We cater for everyone from beginners to experts and have people coming across the Manly, Warringah and Pittwater regions. If you are looking for a private course we can come to you and have visited suburbs from Avalon, Balgowlah, Mosman, Freshwater, Brookvale, Manly, Belrose, Narrabeen, Mona Vale, Warriwood, Frenchs Forest, Chatswood and many more. Please make a booking for a Provide First Aid HLTAID003 course, Provide CPR HLTAID001 course or Childcare HLTAID004 course online via the website.

 

Northern Beaches and Sydney CBD Safety – Provide First Aid HLTAID003 and Provide CPR HLTAID001 course

October 24th, 2016

LAURA SULLIVAN, CENtRAL
October 18, 2016 2:57pm

A DEADLY snake was seen slithering along George St, Sydney sending people into a panic.

Snake handler, Harley Jones from Snake’s in the City, was called to George St around 2.20pm with reports of a red-bellied black snake on the loose.

Mr Jones was contacted by police and two other witnesses to remove the snake from the busy area outside a hotel.

After taking the full grown red-bellied black snake to a Crows Nest vet, Mr Jones said the snake has a good chance of survival despite having blood on its head.

“The snake’s injury is as much of a mystery as why it was there in the first place,” he said.

“There was quite a lot of blood on the footpath, it could be a lung injury.”

Mr Jones said he was pleasantly surprised by the amount of people concerned for the snake’s welfare.

“People were more curious than scared, which is really fantastic to see,” he said.

The venue manager at the Morrison Bar said staff rushed to close the doors and call police as soon as they saw there was a snake out the front.

He said the snake appeared to be injured and distressed, with a large amount of blood on it’s head.
“The staff couldn’t believe what they were seeing and covered the snake up straight away,” the venue manager said.

“You don’t expect to see a massive deadly snake in the city while you are relaxing and having a drink.”

He said none of the patrons appeared to be injured or stressed by the situation.

Mr Jones said finding a snake in the CBD was far from a regular thing for him.

“It is very unusual to find a red-bellied black snake in front of a hotel, in the middle of the city,” Mr Jones said.

The venom is poisonous and symptoms include bleeding and or swelling at the bite site, nausea, vomiting, headache, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, sweating, local or general muscle pain and weakness, and red-brown urine.

Although there are a number of bites each year, very few human deaths have resulted and most deaths were in earlier times.

Often bite victims experience only mild or negligible symptoms but some end up in hospital.

But there is a greater risk for children and pets.

The snakes grow to an average size of 1.5 to 2m, with males growing slightly larger. But they can grow up to about 2.5m.

Yes folks its that time of year again. Snakes are coming out to look for food. Make sure you are ready in case a family member gets a snake bite, learn first aid in a nationally recognised first aid course on the Northern Beaches. We are the best first aid course in Sydney and we offer training with a defibrillator to all participants. Book now for a day you wont forget.
