Level 3 First Aid Training Introduction
Level 3 first aid is the most advanced level. After you complete level 3, you will start moving into paramedic courses. Level 3 one of the hardest courses we have to offer. Completing this course can be very rewarding. You will gain a lot of knowledge by getting your certificate.
Level 3 first aid training will not be for everybody. Unless you do it for self-improvement, it is probably not necessary. This course will be great for anybody that wants to become a paramedic or BAA. This course can even benefit the person that wants to study to become a doctor.
Difference Between Level 2 & Level 3
In this level, you will learn everything in level 1 & 2 again. This time you will learn a lot of theory. You will even understand the flow of blood in the heart. Most information will not be vital to treating basic injuries. Level 3 does not consist of a lot of practical. The most practical course is level 1 first aid. Knowing the name of every bone in the body will not be important to treat a patient. Knowing the name of the bone will however assist the paramedics when you call them.
Because this level contains so much theory, there are some minimum requirements. To qualify for this course, you need at least a Gr8 (St 6) qualification. This provision is to prevent you from wasting your time. You must be able to read and write, there will be a lot of studying. You need to have a valid Level 2 before you can enter this course.
Head & Spinal Injuries
Although common, head and spinal injuries can be life threatening. It is important to understand spinal injuries. Often it is not an injury that cause disability but the treatment afterwards. We have seen situations where a person was picked up after a severe back injury. This event is where a lot of damage happens. All three levels cover spinal injuries. You will learn practically how to transport a person with a suspected spinal injury.
Multiple Injury Management
IN some cases, a person can have more than one injury. Let us look at a car accident. A person can have a spinal injury, broken bone and bleeding. You need to understand the risks for each injury. This skill will help you prioritize your protocol. It is not always the person that screams the most that needs attention the fastest. The person not breathing will not be able to scream. Multiple injury management will teach you the skill to know whom to treat first and why.
There is nothing more beautiful than bringing a child into the world. Unfortunately, it is not always a controlled environment. Unexpected childbirths happen all the time. Not many people possess the skill to deliver a baby. Although this ability is mostly for emergencies, the level 3 first aider will have the skill.
