Relief of Choking Workshop

Prevention is better than CURE.

No child should die of choking.  Yet every day children choke, and every year hundreds die and thousands land in emergency departments. One of every parent’s biggest fears is seeing their child choking. Knowing what to do in this situation could be the difference between life and death for loved ones. But the most important thing is to train yourself and others around you to recognize and respond to choking hazards.

The info in this post is intended for multiple audiences including parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers, hotel/food industry, childcare providers, babysitters, youth, primary grade students and all. It would not take lot of your time or resources to learn anti-choking techniques to save someone’s life.

Bleeding Control Course

According to the CDC, traumatic injury is one of the leading causes of death for people under 50 years of age (in the U.S). A large portion of those deaths are from severe bleedingthe most treatable cause of death due to trauma. Up to 20% of trauma deaths could be prevented with effective bleeding control technique’s application.

The new Advanced Bleeding Control training program is designed to provide detailed instruction on the control of severe external bleeding, including the use of direct pressure, commercial pressure bandages, tourniquets and packed dressings.

The programs are ideal for those who have a greater than average chance of witnessing an injury event in which severe bleeding occurs and professional medical care is not readily available or is overwhelmed, such as law enforcement, private security, workplace emergency response team personnel and staff at large events, campuses or large occupied buildings.

“Don’t bleed on roads but donate blood.”

So get trained and make the difference between life and death.  Mark your calendar today for our next training session:

Protect Yourself from Heat Illness

Working outdoors this summer? It’s all about water, rest, shade and knowing about the heat related problems and how to protect yourself.

Every year, thousands of workers become sick from exposure to heat, and some even die. Heat illnesses and deaths are preventable. Employers are responsible for providing workplaces that are safe from excessive heat and training to their employees how to manage it.

Heat related problems occur when the body’s normal temperature-reducing mechanisms get overwhelmed, especially during vigorous physical activity, and become inefficient or stop working.

The body normally cools itself by sweating. During hot weather, especially with high humidity, sweating isn’t enough. Body temperature can rise to dangerous levels if precautions are not taken such as drinking water frequently and resting in the shade or air conditioning. Heat illnesses range from heat rash and heat cramps to heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat stroke requires immediate medical attention and can result in death.

How can heat illness be prevented?

Employers should establish a complete heat illness prevention program to prevent heat illness. This includes: provide workers with water, rest and shade; gradually increase workloads and allow more frequent breaks for new workers or workers who have been away for a week or more to build a tolerance for working in the heat (acclimatization); modify work schedules as necessary; plan for emergencies and train workers about the symptoms of heat-related illnesses and their prevention; and monitor workers for signs of illness. Workers new to the heat or those that have been away from work and are returning can be most vulnerable to heat stress and they must be acclimatized.

To prevent heat related illness and fatalities:

  • Drink water every 15 minutes, even if you are not thirsty.
  • Rest in the shade to cool down.
  • Wear a hat and light-colored clothing.
  • Learn the signs of heat illness and what to do in an emergency.
  • Keep an eye on fellow workers.
  • “Easy does it” on your first days of work in the heat. You need to get used to it.

If workers are new to working in the heat or returning from more than a week off, and for all workers on the first day of a sudden heat wave, implement a work schedule to allow them to get used to the heat gradually.

Remember these three simple words: Water, Rest, Shade. Taking these precautions can mean the difference between life and death.

Who is affected?

Any worker exposed to hot and humid conditions is at risk of heat illness, especially those doing heavy work tasks or using bulky protective clothing and equipment. Some workers might be at greater risk than others if they have not built up a tolerance to hot conditions, including new workers, temporary workers, or those returning to work after a week or more off. This also includes everyone during a heat wave.

Industries most affected by heat-related illness are: construction; trade, transportation and utilities; agriculture; building, grounds maintenance; landscaping services; and support activities for oil and gas operations.

Prepare early so not to repent. Manage your risks and learn emergency first aid to deal with any undesired event/situation.

Bleeding Control Kits

Injury results from a wide variety of causes, including accidents or intentional harm, and in a wide variety of locations, such as your home or workplace. It is important that as many people as possible survive their injuries if they sustain trauma. Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death from trauma. The greater the number of people who know how to control bleeding in an injured patient, the greater the chances of surviving that injury.

In addition to training law enforcement officers in bleeding control and instantly providing them with equipment to do so, emergency medical service personnel also need quicker access to the wounded. However, another key element calls for using civilian bystanders as immediate responders who perform external bleeding control for victims at the point of wounding before the arrival of professional responders.

We have designed Personal Bleeding Control Kits and packaged in a zippered bag for long-lasting durability.  Bring it with you camping or hiking, office, high-rise buildings, schools, universities, at sporting events, in-vehicle, on trips etc. The zippered nylon bag will protect the kit and keep you prepared for a bleeding emergency wherever you are.

Kit includes:

  • Bleeding Control Instructional Card – 1
  • C-A-T™ tourniquet – 1
  • Tytek Emergency Trauma Bandage 6″ – 1
  • QuikClot® Bleeding Control Dressing – 1
  • Gloves – 2 pairs
  • Compression bandage – 2
  • Sterile gauze pad 4×4 – 1 pack
  • Roller gauze 2″ – 4
  • Trauma shear – 1
  • Adhesive tape – 1
  • First aid bandage – 10
  • Normal saline – 25ml
  • Marker – 1

Personal Safety – Stop the Bleed

Blood vessels are present throughout the body. Bleeding occurs when tissues are damaged. Heavy bleeding is likely if a major blood vessel is damaged. Bleeding reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood. If heavy or uncontrolled, bleeding can quickly become life threatening.

Arterial bleeding is bright red and will often spurt from a wound. It can be difficult to control due to pressure created by the heart’s contractions.

If the blood is dark red and flowing steadily, it is likely coming from a damaged vein. Bleeding from a vein can be heavy. Regardless of the source, all heavy bleeding must be controlled as soon as possible.

Clot-forming fibers naturally collect at a wound site to create a path to stop bleeding. Severe bleeding can overwhelm this process and prevent clotting from occurring.

Earlier the ABC was associated with CPR which has now become CAB, but now there is new ABC and this time it is associated with bleeding control.

How and Who Can Help:

The greater the number of people who know how to control bleeding in an injured
patient, the greater the chances of surviving that injury. You can help save a life by knowing how to stop bleeding if someone, including yourself, is injured.

Traumatic injury is one of the leading cause of death for people under 50 years of age. A large potion of those deaths are from severe bleeding – the treatable cause. Up to 20% trauma deaths could be prevented with effective bleeding control.

PRIMARY PRINCIPLES OF TRAUMA CARE RESPONSE:

■ Ensure you own safety

The ABCs of Bleeding

■ A – Alert – Call EMS (1122 for All Punjab or local EMS in other parts of Pakistan)

■ B – Bleeding – find the bleeding injury

■ C – Compress – apply pressure to stop the bleeding

1. Covering the wound with a clean cloth and applying pressure by pushing directly on it with both hands, OR

2. Using a tourniquet, OR

3. Packing (stuffing) the wound with gauze or a clean cloth and then applying pressure with both hands.

Personal Safety:

REMEMBER, your personal safety is always always the top priority. A general impression is a quick sense of what has occurred, or is occurring, when you first observe an emergency scene. This impression can help guide you in your approach. Emergency scenes are often unsafe. Your personal safety is always the highest priority, even before the safety of an ill or injured person. Always pause for a moment before approaching an emergency and look for obvious hazards. Consider the possibility of hidden dangers.

■ If you become injured, you will not be able to help the victim.
■ Provide care to the injured person if the scene is safe for you to do so.
■ If, at any time, your safety is threatened, attempt to remove yourself (and the victim if possible) from danger and find a safe location.
■ Protect yourself from blood-borne infections by wearing gloves and other valid barriers, if available, and if not then improvise but don’t compromise your personal safety.

Stop the Bleed – Introduction

In the wake of a traumatic event, uncontrolled bleeding is one of the most frequent causes of death. A person can bleed to death in less than five minutes, which makes it difficult for emergency medical responders to arrive fast enough to control bleeding and save lives. Injury results from a wide variety of causes, including accidents or intentional harm, and in a wide variety of locations, such as your home or workplace. It is important that as many people as possible survive their injuries if they sustain trauma.

In addition to training law enforcement officers in bleeding control and instantly providing them with equipment to do so, emergency medical service personnel also need quicker access to the wounded. However, another key element calls for using civilian bystanders as immediate responders who perform external bleeding control for victims at the point of wounding before the arrival of professional responders.

Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable death from trauma. The greater the number of people who know how to control bleeding in an injured patient, the greater the chances of surviving that injury. You can help save a life by knowing how to stop bleeding if someone, including yourself, is injured.

In this series of articles, you will learn the various ways to control bleeding, whether you only have your two hands to use or whether you have a full trauma first aid kit available to you.

PRIMARY PRINCIPLES OF TRAUMA CARE RESPONSE

■ Ensure you own safety

■ The ABCs of Bleeding

■ A – Alert – Call EMS (1122 for All Punjab or EMS in other parts of Pakistan)

What Are Your First Aid Fears?

At work, injuries and illnesses kill about 2.2 million people in the world each year. In the US, about one-third of all injuries and 20% of injury deaths occur at home. 82% of parents would not know what to do if their children choke on food, burned themselves or drowned in their own back yard.

Today we would like to request you to take part in this poll and let us know what are your fears. We have decided to post series of articles covering all those topics you feel uncomfortable/hesitant about, so you don’t have to be.

Safe practices at work, home, and play can prevent many injuries, illnesses, and deaths. However, once injury or sudden illness has occurred, effective first aid can make the difference between a rapid or prolonged recovery, a temporary or permanent disability, and even life or death. The most critical decision you will make is whether to get involved when a medical emergency has occurred. It is normal to feel hesitant because you are unsure of your ability to help.

 You might hesitate because you feel like you are alone in helping. You are only the first link in a progressive chain of emergency care. Your involvement lasts only until relieved by another first aid provider or responding EMS providers – in most cases, a very short period of time.

You might hesitate for fear of making things worse. Your basic first aid training provides you with sound knowledge and skills designed only to help – and not harm – those in need.

You might also hesitate because you think you don’t have a lot of medical knowledge. Extensive medical knowledge is not necessary. First aid skills are based on common sense and simple, effective procedures that can be easily learned and safety applied.

Finally, you might hesitate because others have already stopped to help. It never hurts to see if additional assistance is needed. Other bystanders may not have any first aid training or may be hesitant to provide care.

A general impression is a quick sense of what has occurred, or is occurring, when you first observe an emergency scene. This impression can help guide you in your approach. At First Aid to Save a Life Pakistan, we offer training courses such as First Aid, CPR & AED for Adults, Pediatric First Aid, CPR and AEDCPR and AED for All (Adult, Children & Infants)Emergency Oxygen First AidFirst Aid Instructor Development CourseBloodborne Pathogens.

How to Prevent Choking

Prevention is better than CURE.

No child should die of choking.  Yet every day children choke, and every year hundreds die and thousands land in emergency departments. One of every parent’s biggest fears is seeing their child choking. Knowing what to do in this situation could be the difference between life and death for loved ones. But the most important thing is to train yourself and others around you to recognize and respond to choking hazards.

The info in this post is intended for multiple audiences including parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers, hotel/food industry, childcare providers, babysitters, youth, primary grade students and all. It would not take lot of your time or resources to learn anti-choking techniques to save someone’s life.

Choking is largely preventable. To help reduce the chances of injury and death from choking, this post focuses on prevention strategies and knowing what to do if choking emergency occurs. Choking on food and small objects is a leading cause of death in children under the age of 5. Adults do choke on food and can die because of that too. It is common that food/eatables are biggest threat we have to deal with.

  • Kabab, sausages
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Whole grapes
  • Popcorn
  • Hard or gooey/sticky candy
  • Chunks of peanut butter or cheese
  • Raw vegetables such as carrots
  • Rice cakes; etc.

These days we often see a caution on packing materials and bags that secure them away from babies and young children. There are many other items found in the home that can lodge in a child’s throat and include:

  • Balloons
  • Coins
  • Chewing gum
  • Marbles and ball
  • Toys with small parts that can break off
  • Clothing buttons
  • Small button type batteries
  • Pen or marker caps; etc.

What can be done: 

  • Cutting food into small pieces for young children.
  • Supervising the children at mealtime.
  • Not allowing children to run or play while eating.
  • Encouraging not to take sip when something chewing/eating.
  • Monitoring and educating older children or siblings to prevent them from giving smaller children dangerous foods or small objects.
  • Avoiding toys with small parts.
  • Not allowing young children to play with coins and other small objects.

While you can’t predict when an emergency will occur, you can be prepared. In less time than you think, First Aid to Save a Life can give you the vital knowledge and skills you’ll need to respond to a life-threatening situations like choking with confidence.

FATSAL is a trainingconsultancy and sales company working since 2011 with a mission to train people to prevent injuries/illness and save lives. We strive to make first aid part of everybody’s life. We use best training supplies during our sessions to make learning easy and enhance its retention. For choking we use Act+Fast Medical’s Anti-Choking Trainer (an educational medical device patent in US) to educate participants, parents, teachers, as well as the children themselves, to learn these simple life-saving techniques. Practicing with this product will provide the confidence to react during an emergency and save lives. Use this trainer to teach yourself and everyone you know, and help make the world a little safer.
