Course Description

The main aim of this course is to teach students to identify serious and life-threatening situations and be able to provide appropriate first aid. Real mastery of first aid skills can only be obtained when students have the opportunity to practice techniques – preferably in specific situations (simulations) – in addition to theoretical knowledge. The ability to provide first aid is relevant in daily life as well as in sport settings. Many people are reluctant to administer first aid because of concerns that they might harm the injured person, and they rely on Emergency Services. This practical course aims to give students both the skills and the confidence to take appropriate action.

Learning Objectives
There are three main aims of the course:
– create an appropriate personal attitude
– learn correct practice of skills (esp. the life-saving skills)
– learn preventive approach

Course Prerequisites
Basic anatomy and physiology knowledge is welcome.

Methods of Instruction
The course will be taught using these methods of instruction:
– short lectures at the beginning of each session
– films and videos – for instructions or illustrations

– practicing of techniques individually and in specific situations

– class debates
– experiential learning

Assessment and Final Grade

1. Assessment Type 1: Practical skills in model situations 50%

2. Assessment Type 2: First aid in life threatening conditions – test 30%

3. Assessment Type 3: First aid in other serious conditions – test 20%

Course Requirements
Practical skills in model situations

The students will be graded in basic practical skills such as approaching the unconsciousness person, opening airways, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (adults, children), use of automatic external defibrillator, and treatment of massive bleeding. The following criteria will be evaluated: sequence and correctness.

First aid in life threatening conditions – test

The following theoretical knowledge in selected topics is required:
unconsciousness – approaching the person (assessing of responsiveness and breathing), opening airways, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, automatic external defibrillator, foreign body airway obstruction, cardiopulmonary resuscitation in children, external bleeding.

First aid in other serious conditions – test

The following theoretical knowledge in selected topics is required:
internal bleeding, heart attack, breathing difficulties, allergy, stroke, seizures, trunk and upper/lower extremity injuries, wounds, abdominal pain, spine injury suspicion, head injury, car accident, thermal injuries and intoxication.

Attendance and active participation
Attendance is mandatory.
