Objectives By the end of this course, the student will be able to: State the role of the Emergency First Aider Carry out a primary survey of a casualty To place an unconscious casualty into the recovery position Carry out effective rescue breathing to current Resuscitation Council guidelines Carry out effective CPR to current Resuscitation Council guidelines Use an AED as appropriate to Resusitation Council Guidlines Recognise and deal with Minor & major cases of bleeding To recognise and treat a patient suffering from medical shock Recognise & treat medical emergencies as identified by student group. Syllabus On completion of training, successful candidates should be able to: understand the role of the first-aider, including reference to: – the importance of preventing cross infection; – the need for recording incidents and actions; – use of available equipment; assess the situation and circumstances in order to act safely, promptly and effectively in an emergency; administer first aid to a casualty who is unconscious (including seizure); administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation; place a casualty in the safe airway position; administer first aid to a casualty who is choking; administer and use an automatic external defibrillator administer first aid to a casualty who is wounded and bleeding; administer first aid to a casualty who is suffering from shock; provide appropriate first aid for minor injuries (including small cuts, grazes and bruises, minor burns and scalds, small splinters). Certificate validity, requalification and refresher training All first-aid training certificates, whether FAW, EFAW or some other appropriate training, are valid for three years. Employers need to arrange retraining before certificates expire. The FAW requalification course lasts two days. If the first-aider does not retrain or requalify before the expiry date on their current certificate they are no longer considered competent to act as a first-aider in the workplace. They can requalify at any time after the expiry date by undertaking the two-day requalification course.An EFAW requalification course should be of the same duration and content as the initial EFAW course. HSE strongly recommends that first-aiders undertake annual refresher training during any three-year FAW/EFAW certification period. Although not mandatory, this will help qualified first-aiders maintain their basic skills and keep up-to-date with any changes to first-aid procedures. HSE does not specify the design of these courses. Employers should also encourage first-aiders to regularly review their course manual and any other instructional materials and allocate them time to do this. It will further help to maintain their first-aid skills. Employers should keep a record of first-aiders and certification dates to help with the timely arrangement of further training.
