First aid skills are highly useful and rewarding. There is nothing as rewarding as knowing you could save a life during an emergency.  The demand for Learning First Aid (First Aid HLTAID003) skills is also high in the private and public sector due to health and safety requirements.  People who have not taken a first aid course have either of the following 5 reasons. That an accident will never happen to them or anyone of their loved ones, lack of time, they don’t understand the process and where to begin, and finally others think they already have enough knowledge to save lives when need arises.

Patient Comfort

A trained first aider will provide relief and relaxation to the patient.  A relaxed patient will make it easy for the first aider to assess the situation and treat them.  Comfort among both the first aider and patient are key when stabilizing the condition before professional medical personnel arrives.  Most emergency injuries do not necessarily require visiting a medical centre. However such injuries cause pain or bleeding. Understanding the art of skills such as bandaging and ice pack application is important to providing the patients with comfort.

Stabilize Situations that Would Otherwise Become Worse

A patient’s situation could deteriorate from bad to worse in case they don’t receive medical attention on time. A first aider can help stabilize the situation until medical personnel arrive.  The skills you acquire will ensure you can use basic household items as first aid tools and utilize what is available.  The first aider will also equip themselves with information collecting skills on a situation. Such information is important to medical emergency services and saves valuable time.

You will Save Lives

When an emergency case arises, a person trained in first aid will have more confidence and be reliable to take control of the situation.  First aid skills therefore help save lives and also reduce a person’s recovery time.  This could add significant benefit and prevent an injured patient from undergoing long term or temporary disability. The skills will come in handy and enable you to remain calm. Untrained people will not even know where to begin.

Healthy and Safety

A first-aider should learn how to look after themselves. They should take safety as a priority. Most people think its being selfish  to keep yourself warm and safe. However, the fact you are safe puts in position to help others when need arises. This is therefore a practical act. You will also learn healthy living tips that will hugely influence your lifestyle habits.  Which are all important in day to day situations.

Requirements for Lifeguards

First aid skills are a standard requirement for lifeguards.  These lifeguards will acquaint themselves with comprehensive first aid skills and be able to handle different situations. They will also have knowledge on how to deal with these situations quickly.
