Getting hands on with First Aid


On 15 April 2018, a day long certificate program was organised by New Acropolis in association with the Life Supporters Institute of Health Sciences. Fundamentals of First Aid and CPR were explained and practical hands-on exercises were conducted to ensure that attendees developed basic comfort and skill with the first response measures taught. Topics included how to deal with Cuts, Burns, Bruises, Fractures, Electrical Shocks, Choking, Drowning, Heart Attack, and Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation which is administered in case of Cardiac Arrest.

The need for First Aid training and preparedness is essentially driven by the sentiment of Service; the ability to administer the necessary response, without panic, in times of need. The session proved to be engaging with an interactive group of participants who raised genuine questions to better understand the subject.
