Up-to-date training courses
Trainees are taught the latest information in technique and pathway updates when providing compressions and defibrillation. Training courses use the Basic Life Support (BLS) guidelines by the American Heart Association when teaching trainees how to rescue a victim of cardiac arrest. Chest compressions started within the first 3-5 minutes of collapse have been show to improve the survival rates of victims. The order has been changed from Airway-Breathing-Circulation to Circulation-Airway-Breathing, making the first step rescuers perform chest compressions.
Combined first aid, CPR and AED courses are also given, covering a variety of emergency situations. One of the lessons covered in basic first aid classes is major bleeding injuries such as puncture wounds. Trainees will be able to learn how to manage injuries such as puncture wounds if emergency medical help has not yet arrived or is too far away.
- A puncture wound is a open wound caused by blunt or sharp instruments such as animal teeth, nails, or knives.
- Even though the wound can have a small opening, it should be treated seriously as a puncture wound often penetrates deep into the tissue, possible damaging internal organs and structures.
- A major concern with these wounds is contamination deep in the wound especially around internal organs.
Private classes are also available, usually taken by big groups or companies who request separate classes for their training.
Workplace Approved Certification
All training courses are workplace approved certification courses, so trainees who are able to complete a training course are awarded a certificate, valid for three years throughout Canada. Renewal of near-expiry certificates is available through refresher courses at Hamilton First Aid, offered at least twice a week.
