First Aid / CPR / AED Class, New Bedford, MA
About the Event
When you’re at sea, you don’t have the convenience of emergency personnel arriving in a few minutes to care for an injured crewman. As fishermen, you are the first responders. Depending on the weather and your distance from shore, you may continue to respond for a long time until medical experts take over. This CPR & First Aid Class is enhanced to teach you the most up to date life-saving skills. This class certifies fishermen in CPR and First Aid and meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements under 46 CFR 28.21.
During the CPR & First Aid Course, you will receive hands-on instruction for these skills and more:
*Tourniquets * Splinting (broken bones) * Wound Care *Hypothermia * Diabetes * Overdose *Heart Attack * Shock * Traumatic Injuries *Allergic Reactions * Burn Treatment * Stroke * Cuts and Lacerations * Chemical Poisoning *First Aid Kits * Infections * Patient Assessment * Bites and Stings *Frostbite * Medical Emergencies (Appendicitis, Seizure, Sepsis etc.) * Asthma * Dehydration * Amputation * Heat Stroke * Choking * CPR * AED use * Patient Evacuation *Ergonomics and more.
