Emergency First Aid Fundamentals

Would you know what to do if you were deep in the wilderness, and a hunting companion sustained a penetrating chest wound from an errant round? Could you prolong the life of a loved one long enough for the ambulance to arrive, if he or she had sustained a lacerated artery from a violent attacker armed with a knife?

While most Americans are comfortable dealing with the cuts and scrapes of everyday life, and tens of thousands have learned the Heimlich maneuver and CPR, most individuals would be a bit less comfortable dealing with severe, life threatening injuries or illnesses when seconds count, and EMS personnel and the emergency room are minutes (or longer) away.

In this course, a USCCA certified instructor will not only explain the proper way to access a patient, they will also cover in great detail the proper way to deal with significant issues such as serious bleeding, chest injuries, a compromised airway, spinal injuries, broken bones, and more.

Broken Down By:

  • Patient Assessment
  • Traumatic Emergencies
  • Medical Emergencies
  • Building You Own First-Aid Kit

While it might seem unrealistic to translate what professional EMTs and paramedics are able to do in an emergency versus the things that non-professionals would be capable of, but in life threatening medical and traumatic emergencies, it all boils down to the same thing — sustaining the life of the patient until he or she can be delivered to the emergency room.

Patient Assessment

  • Assessing the Situation
  • Determining Scene Safety
  • Assessing and Treating Major Life Threats
  • Stabilizing Spinal Injuries
  • Airway, Breathing and Circulation
  • Reading the Patient
  • Secondary Assessments
  • Emergency Moves

Traumatic Emergencies

  • Sever Arterial Bleeding
  • Maintenance of a Severe Laceration
  • Penetrating Chest Injuries
  • Server Burns
  • Musculoskeletal Trauma
  • Femur Fractures
