C–for ‘Circulation’: Check for signs of a circulatory disturbance, which may include the person feeling dizzy, having a high pulse and quick, shallow breathing, looking pale,and feeling cold. Check for signs of internal or external bleeding. We apply pressure to a visible wound or cut using a pressure bandage or a tourniquet. Signs of internal bleeding can be pain, a blueish tinge to the skin, paleness, or dizziness. If the person has these symptoms, we should have them lie down and keep them warm using a blanket or whatever we have to hand. This is how you prevent circulatory disturbance.
D–for ’Disability’: Assess the person’slevel of consciousness by checking if they respond to when spoken to and if they are disoriented regarding time and place. Perform a FAST assessment (see below). Is the person in pain, and if so, what kind of pain and where is it located?
E–for ’Exposure’: Check the person’s body for other injuries using your hands. Is the temperature of the surrounding environment high or low? Minimize heat loss.
FAST is an abbreviation used to help us to remember how to recognize symptoms that may occur in connection with a stroke.
F–for ‘Face’: Ask the person to smile. Are there any signs that one side of their mouth is drooping?
A–for ‘Arms’: Can the person lift up and hold out both of their arms in front of them for 10 seconds?
S–for ‘Speech’: Ask the person to repeat a sentence. Do they slur when they talk?
T–for ‘Time’: If the person has suffered a stroke, every second is important. Do not hesitate, call the emergency services.
The course consists of study material that should be read, an audio recording that should be listened to, and an online test that should be completed before starting the practical training part of the course.Theory and a large number of different practical scenarios are alternated in order to increase preparedness for emergency situations. By listening, reading, and acting out a scenario, the participant achieves a deeper understanding of how to act in emergency situations. Through our First Aid course, we want to increase the safety of your workplace and home. In this way, we want to help you meet the Work Environment Act’s requirements on first aid preparedness and routines in case of accidents or illness at your workplace.
