First-Aid Solutions for Basic and Tactical Situations
We invite everyone to join our First Response Training. Learn Cuts, Stabs and Gunshot Wound Care, Dislocated Joints and Broken Bones, Emergency Transfer, Extrication and Medical Emergencies.
Module 1: Cuts, Stabs and Gunshot Wound Care
We train hard because we don’t plan on getting cut or shot. But let’s face it, bad things do happen. And when it happens, do you know what to do? In this module we take you through the kinematics of penetrating injuries, how to manage them in the field, keeping traumatic shock at bay, improvising equipment and help you build your own trauma kit. We will also highlight the basics of self-care so your own injury will not prevent you from winning the fight.
Module 2: Dislocated Joints and Broken Bones
Few injuries are more painful than dislocated joints and broken bones, and these injuries make grown men (and women) cry. Improperly cared for in the field, these injuries may mean you may not walk again. In this module we will take you through the proper care and management of dislocated joints and broken bones, prevention of additional injury, pain management, and equipment improvisation. We will also make sure that you lose a few calories in the process.
Module 3: Emergency Transfer and Extrication
So you have learned the basics of wound and musculoskeletal injury management and sweat it out in modules 1 and 2. But in a chaotic environment, unless you have overwhelming suppressive fire support, we DO NOT TREAT ON SITE, we first extricate the patient to a safe location and that is what this module is all about. For this module, we shall take you through the finer points of dragging, lifting and moving a patient in a hostile and chaotic environment using proper body mechanics, improvised equipment, time proven techniques and even brute strength. If modules 1 and 2 made you sweat, this module will make you wish you stayed in bed…
Module 4: Medical Emergencies
Cuts and broken bones are mostly injuries with obvious presentations. Medical emergencies however are a bit more complicated. In this module, we will take you through the identification and management of more common life threatening medical emergencies such as heart attack, brain attack, cardiac arrest, diabetic emergencies, and seizures to name a few. You will be also trained in performing proper Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
