Summer First Aid Tips: Heatstroke

Monday, 13 June 2016 14:54:26 Europe/London

The British weather being as unpredictable as it is, and with it’s penchant for rain on Bank Holidays and often through the summer months, any heat-related summer illness such as heatstroke can almost be laughable. How can people get heatstroke in a country where it’s not unusual for it to rain in June and July? After all, it’s not uncommon to see people at summer fairs, wearing wellies and carrying umbrellas as they line up like drowned rats to buy a warming cup of tea. Yet when the warmer weather does appear, most of us are woefully unprepared; it’s estimated there are 2,000 preventable deaths each year in the UK due to heatstroke and this number is due to rise. So what are the signs of heatstroke and how can we prevent these unnecessary deaths?

Summer First Aid Tips: Dehydration

Monday, 6 June 2016 10:16:12 Europe/London

Summer is on its way! And it brings with it beautiful warm weather when we can go for lovely country walks, play Frisbee in the park, head to the beach, go for early morning runs without fear of being rained on, read in the sunshine and eat outside. It’s also a time when people spend lots of time outside and top up their vitamin D levels, too. However, when the hot weather is combined with lots of activities and lack of foresight, it can lead to dehydration. We’re often out and about without easy access to water, e.g. if we’re camping or on a run and sometimes, we just forget because we’re having too much fun or are distracted with other events. Which is why we’ve put together everything you need to know about dehydration and how to prevent it this summer.

The Recovery Position Explained

Monday, 9 May 2016 10:19:22 Europe/London

The recovery position is one of the most important First Aid positions that trainees learn. It’s one that’s usually recommended when a casualty is unconscious and consists of placing them on their side in a stable position. There’s 2 main reasons for this – the first is to prevent mechanical obstruction, which most often is the tongue falling back and blocking the airway and the second is to prevent fluid obstruction (often vomit) which can cause drowning; if a person is unconscious and vomits, it can collect in the throat and also enter the lungs. The recovery position uses gravity to help clear the airway from any such obstruction.

Tuesday, 3 May 2016 10:39:35 Europe/London

There’s nothing quite so scary as being at the scene of an injury where there’s blood.
