What is First Aid?

First aid refers to the process taken to help an injured or sick person in the moments following an illness or injury. Non-medical professionals are more than capable of administering first-aid until definitive medical treatment is accessible.

From home to work or even at school, accidents and sicknesses can occur anytime, anywhere. With first-aid, minor injuries and specific illnesses often may not require further medical treatment. More, first aid can help someone recover fast, feel better, and even save lives.

At First Aid Action, we believe everyone can learn and develop basic first-aid and CPR skills. Not only can they provide you with essential skills necessary in your career or workplace, but they also empower you to save strangers, friends, and loved ones in case of an emergency.

What’s The Difference Between First Aid and CPR Training?

First aid training is a broad practice that teaches you to respond to medical emergencies. One of the topics covered in a first aid course is how to respond to the cessation of breathing or a heartbeat, which requires cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

CPR is administered exclusively in the case of sudden cardiac arrest. In turn, CPR training prepares you for this by teaching CPR and how to recognize the situations where applying it is suitable. Taking both classes can be useful in the event of an emergency.

Why You Should Take First Aid and CPR Training Courses

Save Lives

Tons of people suffer yearly from injuries or sicknesses due to a lack of quick response or timely assistance. Performing basic First Aid or CPR can double a person’s chance of survival.

Relieve Pain

Providing pain relief can help to prevent physiological changes in blood pressure, breathing, and pulse. Basic procedures such as elevating the painful area or applying an ice compress can help to relieve pain and provide comfort until greater medical treatment is available.

Establish Confidence

Knowledge of basic first aid skills helps to establish confidence and reduce the fear of helping strangers during emergencies. People trained to administer first aid are more willing to provide prompt medical attention to casualties.

Greater Awareness

First aid training automates the safety shield that prevents dangerous situations from occurring. It helps to teach you how to assess a situation and act appropriately, consequently increasing safety awareness in the workplace, at home, and in the community.

Safety Beyond the Workplace

Outside of work, first aid skills will benefit you for the rest of your life. Knowledge of basic first aid can help a friend, family member, or bystander in need of immediate medical attention.

I have been using First Aid Action for many years and for a couple of the organisations I have been involved with. Most recently, in Fig Tree Pocket (4069) at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. We love the way Luella facilitates and teaches First Aid to our team and the sessions are interactive, engaging, fun and educational. The team at First Aid action are super organised and we have built a great rapport over the years. I recommend First Aid Action for any organisation. Thank you Luella!

Jackwitz Farms is located in the Lockyer Valley and needed First Aid and CPR training updated. We reached out to Luella and she did not hesitate to travel the distance to accommodate us. What a day it was !!. We all had the best training and walked away so much more confident and could not believe how professional but fun the day was. Thanks Luella, for a great day.

My 15yo daughter completed her First Aid and CPR qualifications with Luella, working her way towards becoming a swim instructor. With Luella’s experience and gentle instruction, she is well on her way to reaching her goal. The programs cover everything she needs to know on how to save a life, including theory to hands-on practical training. An excellent investment - if you are in Redcliffe (QLD) I highly recommend anyone, young or old, allow Luella and her team to teach you this important life(saving) skill.

First Aid Training & the Great Outdoors of Redcliffe

First Aid Training & the Great Outdoors of Redcliffe

The Easter holidays are nearly here, and families are already planning their Easter getaway.

Outdoor family activities include hiking, caravanning or camping around our Great Southeast’s beautiful beaches and bushland, or maybe you’re staying home to catch up on home maintenance.  Whether you plan to head away into the great outdoors, or stay home – accidents do happen. This could be small cuts or scrapes while hiking and camping; fishing hook injuries to hands and fingers; or sunburn and dehydration after a day at the beach or pool. It’s important to treat small injuries properly, before they turn into big problems.

In emergency situations, being equipped with basic First Aid training and knowledge can save a life.

During the relatively short break, accidents can happen so quickly when you, or someone else, is distracted. Every minute counts in a crisis, so ahead of the upcoming School holidays we are urging those living in the Redcliffe area to get trained in First Aid.

Remember that First Aid is intended to be initial care given in an accident or emergency, until qualified medical care is available.

  • Heading out on the road? The latest statistics show 85% of road accident fatalities could be avoided by administering basic First Aid before Paramedics arrive. During a cardiac arrest those who receive bystander CPR have a higher survival rate than those who do not receive treatment.
  • Staying home over the holidays? Many Queenslanders use the time at home to work on those much overdue DIY tasks. Reflecting the Great Aussie DIY attitude, recent data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare show 6,600 Australians were hospitalised last year after falling from a ladder, and 17,000 were injured after using tools or machinery.
  • Planning on Camping, Caravanning, or Bush-Walking? Even in the great outdoors it is so important to be prepared, with 29,900 Australians treated in hospital for bites, stings, and sporting injuries last year alone.
  • Swimming in pools or natural water courses? It’s estimated that a majority of drowning incidents are preventable, and that understanding the Drowning Chain of Survival may significantly improve outcomes in case of emergency.

So what can you do to be prepared for any emergency as Easter approaches?

First – make sure you have an appropriate first aid kit on hand. Kits are readily available and can be customised for your individual situation. The kits will also vary in contents and size depending on risks and hazards, potential and likely injuries, and location. First aid kits should include resources for administering first aid for:

  • Minor wounds, cuts & grazes
  • Control of serious bleeding
  • Soft tissue injuries (sprains & strains)
  • Eye injuries
  • Splinters
  • Minor burns

There’s even some unconventional, yet highly useful items you can take with you, which might even save you a trip to hospital.

  • Tampons – many women keep these handy, but they can also save the day in some emergencies. You may laugh at this hack, but tampons are very absorbent, and can be used to pack bleeding wounds, or slow severe nosebleeds.
  • Large towel – this multipurpose item is great to keep in your car for any emergency. From sudden rain, to motion sickness, to car crashes, a clean towel in your first aid kit will be invaluable if someone has a large injury. Those tiny gauze squares often just aren’t enough to help compress and control bleeding. If the cut is on an extremity, you can wrap the towel around it and apply pressure to the cut. In other cases, you can fold the towel several times and apply direct pressure.
  • Portable phone charger –particularly if you’re travelling to a remote area, stashing a portable phone charger allows you to recharge mobile devices if you get stuck without access to electricity. Your mobile device allows you to call for help, or access GPS to find your nearest hospital or doctor.
  • Bottled water – No matter how short or long your trip is, make sure you have a few bottles of water in with your medical supplies. Rehydrating is just the beginning—the water can also be used for wound irrigation or making a cool compress for abrasions or small burns. It also serves as an eye flush in case you get dirt, sunscreen, or worse in your eye.

Second, and most importantly – make sure you have the education and skills to use your first aid kit properly.

First Aid Action offers an extensive range of First Aid courses and refreshers, teaching you the skills and techniques to treat shock to stings, and everything in between.

Short of time? No problem! Accredited training takes one day, or just six hours with pre-learning options available. There’s still time before the next school holidays!
