Sat 22 Feb. First Aid Course

We now have 9 members who attended a First Aid Course by
our resident member Pete Davies, who is a First Aid-PDA
The titles covered were CPR, Recovery and Top   To   Toe
survey on breathing and circulation, with hands on
experiences with manikins and breathing techniques.
Tailored to our needs were hazardous toxins in chemicals
woodcarvers may use and how to combat the effects. Also,
techniques on using blades to avoid cuts and slashes.
A section on scalds and burns and causes and treatments
were also covered.
We also identified our own heart attack symptoms. Then
finally choking with the methods to remove the object.
Pete was very informative and along with funny anecdotes
made it an  easy to listen to course.
