SSI Respond Right First Aid Course provides you with the skills required to respond to emergency situations. It is a vital course not only when driving but also in the everyday’s life like at home, at work or outside in the street.
The SSI Respond Right First Aid Course will give you the skills and the confidence to enable you to step into a situation, to take control, manage an accident scene, offer medical assistance, reassure and calm victims and bystanders.
To adhere to the SSI Respond Right First Aid Course you must be at least 15 years old and there are no further prerequisites.
The SSI Respond Right First Aid Course is split into 4 areas:
Basic first aid. This is a hands-on practical section where you will deal with non-lethal injuries. You will learn about general diving-related injuries and how to respond appropriately.
SSI Respond Right CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation). CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. In this part of the course, you will learn how to apply properly CPR to a victim at lay down a level.
SSI Respond Right oxygen administration, essential for a dive professional. As you learned in your SSI Open Water Diver Course most of the pressure related injuries are dealt with by providing oxygen as an immediate response. In this section, you will acknowledge different types of oxygen tank valves and mask types. Your instructor will create scenarios so you can understand the right way to provide pure oxygen depending on the circumstances. The provision of supplemental 100 % oxygen has for many years now been shown as an incredible life-saving tool, and greatly enhances a victims recovery times.
SSI Respond Right AED (Automated External Defibrillator). AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator. It is a device to re-establish effective heart rhythm of a victim during incidents like a cardiac arrest or drown victim. With the knowledge of how to safely use an Automated External Defibrillator, you have an even greater likelihood of saving a life than through CPR.
This course is available for divers and non-divers and takes 1 day.
This area is divided into 2 sections: assessment and stabilization.
In the assessment section, you will learn how to assess the victim and the surrounding before providing help. You will learn about the 3R’s (Recognize, Respond and Restrictions) when performing an initial survey of an emergency. Your instructor will create scenarios for you to show potential danger while helping a victim.
In the stabilization section
After completing the SSI Respond Right First Aid Course you will be able to deal with in-water and out of water emergencies. You will be able to keep control in an emergency situation until a medical professional arrives.
