new research carried out by the Red Cross found that although almost 90% of sportspeople agree they have a responsibility to look after each other in a first aid emergency, around half of them don’t feel confident enough to help. The campaign hopes to encourage sportspeople, volunteers and coaches to learn first aid skills and gain the confidence to act in an emergency. http://we.bsites.co.uk/1df

Immediate treatment of choking consists of measures to increase intrathoracic pressure, thus forcing the obstructing material upwards and outwards. Three such methods described are abdominal thrusts (Heimlich manoeuvre), back blows (or slap) and chest thrusts (similar to chest compressions during CPR, but sharper in nature and delivered at a slower rate). http://we.bsites.co.uk/1dd

A recent study conducted by a number of credible sources revealed that, although 65 per cent of parents say the thought of their child needing immediate first aid intervention makes them feel worried, 70 per cent of mums and dads in the UK lack first aid skills that would allow them to help their child in a medical emergency. http://we.bsites.co.uk/1dc

“I was in the checkout queue and a mother was next to me with her baby, who looked about eight months old. “Suddenly I caught sight of the mother patting her baby on the back. He started catching his breath and making a choking sound. “She lifted him out of the trolley and started patting him on the back again – but he was still choking. The fear in her eyes was awful. http://we.bsites.co.uk/1dg

If someone is having a cardiac arrest, you may need to use an AED (automated external defibrillator) to restart their heart. This St John Ambulance training video shows you how to use an AED and treat a casualty having a cardiac arrest. Learning how to use a defibrillator could be life saving. http://we.bsites.co.uk/8y

Ice cream man Phil Harper, a regular visitor to the village, had collapsed at the wheel and was having a heart attack. He had stopped breathing and didn’t have a pulse. Thankfully Tessa, who lives in Manchester but helps her friend Heather out from time to time, is trained in first aid. http://we.bsites.co.uk/1d0

To help someone suffering from sunburn, cover their skin with light clothing or a towel and help them to move out of the sun, and if possible, indoors. Encourage the patient to have frequent sips of cold water, and cool the affected skin by dabbing it with cold water. If the burned area is extensive, the casualty may prefer to soak the affected skin in a cold bath or shower for 10 minutes. Repeat if this helps ease the soreness. http://we.bsites.co.uk/1cz
