In this hands-on two day course, students will learn how to utilise specialised first aid equipment, stabilise a casualty where medical aid has been delayed, maintain life of an unconscious casualty with the use of oxygen equipment and operate a defibrillator unit in order to maintain life in an adult casualty in cardiac arrest.
