Presentation

The condition and evolution of injuries derived from an accident depend, to a large extent, on the speed and quality of the First Aid received.

The aim of this educational activity is to provide a general overview of the concepts that enable immediate attention to be given in the case of sudden accidents or illnesses until professional medical care arrives, thus preventing any injuries from becoming more serious than they are already, and making sure that we only do what we are absolutely sure is right.

It is very important for you to know about and be able to apply the measures described in each of the modules:
• The first module provides an introductory overview of first aid in the workplace.
• The second module explains the initial actions involved in giving first aid, including basic life support.
• The third module describes the most common injuries that we are likely to encounter.

Objectives

– To give an overview of concepts for the immediate attention of an injured or sudden illness until you can get professional medical care.
