This course is based on the basic AED training course with additional aspects to suit the theatre environment, such as utilising the equipment within the auditorium or on stage. This training can lead to prompt action for the casualty, raising the chance of survival from 5% to 80%. This can also be run as a combined course with Basic Life Support for a duration of 4 hours. Please contact the office for additional information and costs.
All employers have a legal duty under the Health and Safety (First-Aid) Regulations to make First Aid provisions within their workplace, and this course will help in meeting this duty. First aid courses of this type are suitable for anyone who is nominated to use an AED in an emergency situation.
The successful candidate will learn how to recognise a cardiac arrest, how to administer basic CPR (Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation), and the use of a portable Automated External Defibrillator.
The course also covers the difficulties presented within a theatre environment, including a systematic approach to patient evacuation from seating in the auditorium, or from the stage.
