When we hear about First Aid, it is often associated with serious disasters. It is something you need when someone is bleeding to death or has just stopped breathing.
While it is true that those situations are when you will wish for dear life that someone around knew first aid, those are not the only situations where you might make use for the skills first aid training can grant you.
If you took first aid training in Mississauga, in one of our centers or elsewhere, you already know the use and significance of first aid in our daily lives.
Here are a few benefits of taking free CPR training in Brampton will grant you, let alone a full first aid CPR course. To make a long story short, in addition to being able to help, you also learn to see avoid dangers.
Cardiac Arrest is Not only Reversible – it is Preventable.
The course walks you not just through valuable techniques to help you battle cardiac arrest. It also helps you see it before it happens. What may seem like someone being just a bit pale from exertion will become an apparent first sign of a heart attack or cardiac arrest gearing up to occur. Noticing this allows you to respond proactively, take charge of the situation and possibly prevent it from occurring altogether.
This alone may seem like a blessing to many, and should be sufficient to get you on board with a beginner first aid training in Mississauga.
Minor Burns are Sometimes Not so Minor
A camping trip with the family leads to someone getting burned from spilled firewood or BBQ charcoal. Not an impossible situation, right? Hardly a disaster either, no?
No. When a person is burned, he or she may grab the next beer and get back to the picnic, not noticing the burn is worse than it seems. The burn can fester or get worse if not treated. Knowing first aid will allow you to tell the difference. They may not be in mortal danger, but who knows how much worse it will get if not taken care of?
Last Line of Defence in a Disaster
Finally, when a real disaster does strike you want to be ready. It never feels like it’s going to happen to you. It is always a surprise, and when it happens, there is no greater feeling of regret and helplessness than sitting over a suffering friend, not knowing what to do that would help them get better.
