About First Aid Training for staff ~ Guest blog by Thuy

First Aid lessons are very useful and important for CEF staff because we often have activities together with the children. Also we do not just work at the CEF office but also in remote areas; in the mountains. 

Even though all of us already learned First Aid when we were at school, it is not enough as we do not remember it all and some of that information has been updated since we studied it before.

 Jane, our nurse-volunteer who currently works at Dong A University taught us very interesting information which helped us retain it, and she updated all our First Aid information.

We learned a lot of helpful theory like CPR and about how to help with First Aid at accidents and with common injuries. What we learned included how to give basic First Aid and how to do some treatments of some common injuries such as treatments for bruises, cuts, sprains, broken bones, burns, bites, stings, rashes, and how to deal with allergies and anaphylaxis, choking and electrocution. Besides teaching us First Aid Theory, Jane didn’t forget to teach us the practical with us then practicing applying bandages for sprains, slings for broken bones and sprains, bandaging for bites. applying splints, doing CPR and putting the ill or injured person into the recovery position.

We also shared our experience and knowledge of traditional First Aid with nurse Jane. Of course, some are the right thing to do and some are the wrong thing to do, but we wouldn’t know if we didn’t talk about them, so it was very good to be able to do that.

We really enjoyed the lessons! Thank you very much Jane!
