Latchi Dive Centre - Emergency First Response Course
Discover simple to follow steps for emergency care. This Emergency First Response course focuses on building confidence in rescuers and increasing their willingness to respond when faced with a medical emergency.
EFR is a classroom-based course and we start by watching the EFR DVD and completing the corresponding knowledge reviews. After completing the theory side of the course we then start with the practical side of Emergency First Response which covers the following:
Primary Care (CPR) – This course teaches you the steps and techniques for handling life-threatening emergencies. You’ll practice eight skills for aiding patients who aren’t breathing, have any heartbeat, may have a spinal injury, may be in shock or who may have serious bleeding. You’ll learn how to perform CPR and continue to monitor the patient so that you provide every possible chance of survival while waiting for emergency medical services to arrive.
Secondary Care (First Aid) – Because many medical conditions are not life-threatening and emergency medical services are sometimes delayed or unavailable, this course teaches you how to provide first aid that eases pain and reduces the risk of further harm. You’ll learn to assess a variety of injuries and illnesses and practice bandaging and splinting.
The course takes just 1 day to complete.
