First aid course
“Who saves one life – saves the whole world.”
With reference to this sentence, we took a part in a day-long first aid course. The course was conducted by professional paramedics who deal with various accidents and sudden life threats on a daily basis.
We learned, among other things, how to assess the condition of the victim, open the airways and perform effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation with the use of an automatic external defibrillator. In addition, we learned how to dress various types of wounds and we experienced how the body and objects in the car behave using a rollover simulator.
The course was very interesting and made us realize how little skill is needed to save a human life.
