AHA First Aid Training in Dubai
First aid is the immediate help and assistance given to a person suffering from sudden illness or injury. The practice attempts to keep victims in a stable situation until medical care can be administered by professionals.
There are several situations in which being trained in First Aid is vital and can even save lives which is why it is always a good idea to receive First Aid Training and authorities made certified first aid personnel mandatory in every company in the emirate.
When a situation arises where a person is unconscious and not breathing due to a stroke, breathing problems, electrocution, drowning, inhaling too much smoke, or unknown reasons it is the time to employ the use of rescue breathing and chest compression. These are methods learnt in Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). When in such situations, each and every second counts and is critical. Every moment must be spent trying to stabilize the affected individual and to contact professional medical assistance.
The American Heart Association (AHA) developed a thorough and extensive training program. The program is taught around the world to help prepare and train individuals for an eventuality where first aid would be required. AHA First Aid training in Dubai allows you to be able to effectively administer first aid when and where it is needed and comes in two courses which will be broken down here.
