CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
Level one will cover CPR in full; however, it does not include child and baby CPR. In Level 2 first aid, you will master how to perform CPR on babies and children. Although it is almost the same, there are some subtle differences.
Emergency Scene Management
As a qualified first aider, you need to know how to manage a scene safely. Let us take a car accident as an example. If you treat a person in the road, you risk injury yourself. You must know that you have to manage the scene to keep it safe. There are many ways to secure an emergency scene. You can redirect traffic, or if possible, move the person to a safer location.
Poisoning, Bites & Stings
Living in South Africa, there is always risk for poisoning, bites, and stings. In first aid level 2, you will learn all about the treatment. Not everybody knows the difference between venom and poison. The biggest variance is the method of delivery. A snake will be venomous. The reason it is venomous is it injects the venom into the victim. A pesticide will be poisonous. The method of delivery can be ingestion or inhalation. In first aid level 2, you will learn snake & dog bites. This skill makes level two great for tour guides and people working around dangerous reptiles.
