We recently came across this article online at Meningitis Research Foundation and deemed it worthy of sharing.

Article Link: https://www.meningitis.org/blogs/what-is-the-meningitis-rash

When most people hear the word meningitis, they think that the rash appears. However, this can be one of the last symptoms to appear and sometimes it never presents. It is so important to trust your instincts, and get help immediately if you suspect meningitis or septicaemia – whether a rash is present or not.

Some recent feedback from a First Aid Course in Marlow was great to receive:

Fantastic training and helped massively on making it interesting and engaging. Will definitely be using Faisal for future first aid training for our staff. Thanks a lot!

Johnny, D – Living Tennis 

Faisal is a great trainer with a broad knowledge that I couldn’t recommend enough! The course in itself was very informative and I feel prepared if I ever find myself in a situation whereby I have to use the first aid training that was taught to me.

You now have the ability to store your medical information on your iPhone. First responders are able to access your medical information without your phone being unlocked. They can see information like medical conditions, blood type, and allergies. There is even a link to your chosen emergency contacts who can be called from your mobile phone by someone accessing your medical ID – you can choose which information you would like to include.

This can be set up via the Health App on your IPhone. See Instructions below:

  • Open the Health App and tap the medical ID tab on the bottom right hand side.
  • Fill in the details in the relevant sections
  • To make your medical ID available from your IPhone, turn on show when locked. This means that your medical ID can be viewed by someone when your IPhone is locked by tapping emergency, then Medical ID.
  • Don’t forget to include your emergency contacts too.

We recently delivered a First Aid Course in Maidenhead for new and existing school staff. It was a pleasure returning to this school, great staff and great venue. The course had been tailored to suit the needs of the staff based on the most likely issues to encounter with their pupils. We presented realistic scenarios to help reinforce learning.

There was great feedback and everyone got involved which made teaching the team a lot of fun.

“Great course, thank you! Good amount of detail and group participation meant we didn’t get bored. Appreciated the anecdotes, which helped put the situations we’re learning about in real life.”

“The trainer was very knowledgeable and supportive throughout the training. Good pace for all level of learners.”

Dates have been released on our website for our First Aid Courses at our open course venue in High Wycombe in 2019.

We also provide in house First Aid training in High Wycombe, Bucks, Berks and Oxfordshire at your venue at a date and time to suit your requirements. All we require is enough floor space for practical activities. We take care of the rest!

According to Asthma UK, there are 5.4 million people with asthma in the UK, and from research carried out by Asthma UK someone has a serious attack every 10 seconds.

Asthma is a condition that affects the airways, causing them to tighten and go into spasm, making it difficult for the sufferer to breathe.

Asthma attacks can be overwhelming and frightening, not only for the sufferer but those around them trying to help. So, it’s important that you remain calm and reassure the casualty as reducing the stress and keeping them calm helps to keep their symptoms under control.

What causes Asthma:

There are many different triggers for asthma attacks, and these include allergies, stress, exercise, exposure to cold and flu viruses, weather, dust mites, pollution.

 Symptoms of Asthma:

Coughing

Wheezy Breathing

Signs of Distress and Anxiety

Difficulty breathing

Struggling to speak

Treatment:

  • Sit the person down in the most comfortable position to assist with their breathing (Ideally, sat on the floor in an upright position). Try to keep them calm and reassure them.
  • Ask them to use their reliever inhaler (usually blue) to take one or two puffs.
  • Encourage them to take slow, steady breaths.
  • If there is no sign of improvement, or you’re worried at any time, call 999 or 112 for an ambulance immediately.
