Course Description:

What do you do if your family member, friend, or co-worker suddenly experiences a medical emergency? Do you know how to access the situation and provide treatment prior to the ambulance arriving? Can you keep them alive until more definitive treatment is available? Many medical emergencies can result in fatality before the ambulance arrives. Understanding a few key treatment options will allow you to increase the chance of survival. Knowing what to tell the medics when they do arrive will help reduce their time on scene, allowing the patient to arrive at the hospital quicker. Many first aid courses focus on what to do in the event of trauma, but don’t adequately prepare people in the event of non-trauma medical emergencies.

This course will cover what to do in the event of:

  • Asthma Attacks
  • Seizures
  • Strokes
  • Allergic Reactions
  • Heat Casualties
  • Diabetic Episodes

Equipment Required:

All equipment will be provided. Please bring a pen and paper.  If you have your own stethoscope and blood pressure cuff, feel free to bring it along.

Prerequisites:

None

Description:

MAAC Foundation Training Center

The facility can be difficult to find as the GPS will take you to a spot on Hwy 30 that is across a field and ditch.

From Hwy 30, turn South on Industrial Drive.  Follow that until the end and turn East (left) on Montdale Drive.  Follow that to end and you will see MAAC on the left side.
