Cycling is an extremely popular pastime. Whether referring to novices or professionals, the chances of sustaining an injury are very real. This is why First Medical Training is pleased to be able to offer this emergency first-aid course. In the event of an accident or a similarly unexpected situation, participants will be fully aware of what needs to be done in order to prevent more serious circumstances.
Course Content at a Glance
The main intention of this first-aid seminar is to equip attendees with the bespoke skill sets required to deal with potentially serious situations. From a broad perspective, individuals will learn how to manage an emergency incident so that they are capable of reacting appropriately. A handful of topics which are included within this course cover issues such as resuscitation and the proper use of defibrillators, addressing shock and a loss of consciousness, immobilising spinal injuries, recognising and mitigating the effects of hypoxia, safely removing helmets, stemming excessive bleeding, and circulatory injuries. The main intention is to provide attendees with a working and hands-on knowledge of how to respond to these (and other) medical emergencies.
Embracing a Proactive Approach
Some cycling injuries can be quite serious (such as if a vehicle is involved). This is why it is critical to appreciate the basic first-aid tactics to employ. These responses could very well equate to the difference between life and death during severe situations.
Whether you are an avid cyclist, an event coordinator or you simply wish to learn more about what to do in an emergency scenario, be sure to reserve a spot today so that you can take advantage of all that this seminar has to offer.
