Infant Recovery Position

by Keith -

We have added a new video to the online sites to clarify the position you place an infant in when they are breathing. Putting an infant in the recovery position is simple. Just cradle the infant in your arms. This keeps the airway in a neutral position, allows fluid to drain and comforts the infant. You are all ready to easily carry the infant to the ambulance. www.propaediatric.co.uk

New HSE Guidance on giving Asprin to someone having a Heart Attack

by Keith -

The HSE have clarified the point of giving Asprin to someone who is having a heart attack. This advice is directly for first aiders in the workplace but good advise in all sectors.  They state: Anecdotal information has come to our attention that training on the administration of aspirin on FAW courses appears to be inconsistent. The view of HSE is that the administration of medication by a first aider is not part of a FAW or EFAW training course, but you can assist an individual in taking it. However, the one exception is when training students on first aid …

Recovery Position

by Keith -

There are several variations of the recovery position, each with its own advantages. No single position is perfect for all victims. The position should be stable, near a true lateral position with the head dependent, and with no pressure on the chest to impair breathing.

Kneel beside the victim and make sure that both his legs are straight. Place the arm nearest to you out at right angles to his body, elbow bent with the hand palm-up. Bring the far arm …
