How are your first aid skills? Earlier this week I was in a School teaching CPR, then I heard of the 5 year old that saved his brother from choking. He learnt this in school, How many of us would know what to do? How many could learn what to do? When was the last time you went on a first aid course or did any training?
This picture on the right is from a restaurant in the US? In American restaurants, it's a legal requirement to show a poster explaining what to do! Simple but good idea?
First Aid help has come a long way in the 21st century. Automated external defibrillators or AED's are becoming common place in out towns and villages. Many people say they wouldn't know what to do. Don't be scared it's easy and it talks you through it and tells you how to do follow up chest compressions! An episode of the one show explains how CPR and an AED saved golfer Bernard Gallacher's Life. (ONE SHOW)
This one is in the Village of Hythe in Hampshire.
I have recently recieved this from a lead dermatlogist at Southampton General Hospital.
