Emergency Care in the Wilderness

Emergency Care in the wildernessRescue5

The emergency care in the wilderness series of first aid training is specially designed with the great outdoors in mind. It is particularly suited to people who work or play in remote outdoor areas, such as, forestry workers, national park wardens, mountain guides, mountain leaders, rock climbing leaders, kayaking instructors, walking groups. The course focuses on all the first aid skills but with the emphasis on the fact that you may be a longer time waiting for help to arrive and not the 8 minutes as required by HIQA in urban emergency. With this in mind we spend a lot on time on dealing with the issues that arise due to this delay, i.e. sustaining life over a longer period, splinting, moving spinal injured patients and survival, warmth shelter etc.

Duration:  1 – 5 Days. Depending on areas contained on the course 8 hours per day
