ANAPHALXIS, YOU CAN HELP

December 15, 2019

Following some recent highly published cases, and a case a lot closer to home, I think it would help you all to get a better understanding of Severe Allergies and Anaphylaxis. A life-threatening allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) can cause shock, a sudden drop in blood pressure and trouble breathing. In people who have an allergy, anaphylaxis can occur minutes after exposure to a specific allergy-causing substance (allergen). In some cases, there may be a delayed reaction or anaphylaxis may occur without an apparent trigger.

SAVE A LIFE

January 17, 2018

One of the most common questions we receive is "Will I get sued if I give first aid to a casualty?"

 

Simple rules to work by: 

Rule 1:  Act in the best interest of the casualty

Rule 2:  Only treat in the manner in which you have been trained

Rule 3:  Only treat if you are willing and able to do so

Learning First Aid

March 18, 2017

How Much First Aid Do You Need? First aid training can be overlooked. Most people never take a formal first aid class. Maybe your mother taught you some first aid. Maybe you learned it as a Girl Scout or Boy Scout.

First aid training may help you decide when to go to the emergency department. Emergency departments are expensive and busy. The average time spent in an emergency department visit is over 3 hours. Many folks don't want to go to the ER if they don't have to go.

My Dog Saved My Life

Choking is an emergency - if you can't breathe then you will die. If you see someone who appears to be choking you should always ask them "Are you choking?" before you start thumping them on the back. Lexi the Labrador didn't follow the correct steps, but then he is a dog!

Pioneering Procedure Used At Roadside to Save Cyclist's Life

September 22, 2020

Victoria was cycling to work along Clerkenwell Road in London when she was crushed by a skip lorry, suffering horrific injures to her leg. A team from the London Air Ambulance arrived at the scene within five minutes in a rapid-response car. The helicopter, which was attending another scene when the call came, arrived soon after. As part of our courses at STAC we cover when to call the emergency services.
