Recently, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society
held a very informative, busy
intensive care for first aid.
First aid is vital for saving lives. We are convinced that not only doctors should be able to provide emergency medical care, but also every conscious citizen, who, in unfortunate circumstances, can witness an accident. Do you know that up to 35,000 people can be rescued every year in Ukraine, provided timely medical assistance?
An algorithm for first aid has been outlined for us. The recognition of the problem and providing help, how to perform CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and carry out first aid with burns, frostbite, wounds, bleeding, and fractures were trained.
The participants of the training were able to learn and practice indirect heart massage and artificial respiration on the dummy, impose a tire on and
how to safely transport the
injured person and stop the bleeding.
The training left great impressions, and most importantly – valuable skills, how not to harm and properly carry out first aid, and possibly to save the injured person ‘s life. It was very informative and certainly very useful for us.
