First Aid at the Stronsay School

"On Wednesday 21 st March, all of secondary went to learn about first aid in the afternoon. Skills we learnt were how to use AED machine, when the right time was to use CPR, how to do CPR on babies, children and adults and what to do if you see someone choking. We went into pairs with a fake body to practice and apply what we had seen. I think it is important to know first aid because seeing a person who is in need of it could happen to anybody at any time. Knowing first aid could save someone’s life. I think the most important skill to learn is how to CPR on an adult because it is most likely to happen to them. I think what I found most challenging was pushing down correctly on the chest to keep the blood in the body pumping. A big thank you goes to Rosalind for spending time informing us about first aid." 

"On Wednesday 21 st march 2018 the S1 – 4 were taught about First aid by Rosalind. We learnt how to perform CPR on adults, children and babies. We also learnt how to use an AED machine. The AED machine told you how to apply the pads and you had to press the button to give the shock. There was a fake body which you used to practice CPR. Rosalind taught the secondary’s about what to do if you see someone choking. I think that it is important to know about First aid because you never know when you might need it. As Rosalind said “if you don’t use it you lose it” which is why you should go over it every year."
