It was training of a different kind when our chief first aid instructor, Scott Whimpey, attended the Australian Institute of Sport at their Gold Coast Mermaid Waters office. These guys already knew a thing or two about staying healthy and dealing with injuries from sport but things were taken up to another level today when they were shown an onsite emergency simulated Cardiac Arrest.
Understanding the symptoms and treatment for heart attacks is essential for any athlete pushing their body to the limit which is why so many sporting organisations are taking the time to educate their staff and members on the importance of knowing First Aid.
It was a great day with the team at the Australian Institute of Sport all of whom received a gold medal for the first aid workshop today.
If you are a sporting team, venue or organisation and would like more information on the first aid courses we can specifically tailor to your industry, contact our First Aid Accident and Emergency head office today.
