Recent changes in Health and Safety Executive and European Resuscitation Council guidance has led to the reintroduction in teaching the use of tourniquets and haemostatic agents in some first aid courses.
Our Catastrophic Injuries Course further enhances and develops this teaching to include not just the how and where of tourniquets and haemostatic agents, but also the must, must not and the why of these lifesaving tools & techniques. It will enable course delegates to understand & be able to administer lifesaving treatment to those injured in a traumatic incident, before the arrival of the emergency services.
The course is ideal for those working in the UK or abroad in high risk or hostile environments, such as security staff, arborists, construction & forestry workers, expedition leaders and companies who feel their staff would benefit from this type of training.
This is a very hands-on course, during which you will get several hours of practical experience. By its very nature, this course covers topics which some might find distasteful or disturbing.
Following successful completion of the course and assessments, the learner will receive the following certificate:
