On 17th and 18th July 2019 UPM Health Centre had organized First Aid and Basic Life Support Course. The event had taken place at Seminar Room UPM Health Centre and was attended by 28 participants from various departments. It was handed by 1 medical officer and 2 trained facilitators from Red Crescent Society.
Participants were exposed on first aid kit, its contents and their usage. They were also taught on basic wound dressing and splinting for fractured limbs.
On basic life support participants were exposed and educated on how to help choking patient and to perform cardio pulmonary resuscitation. It is immensely important for every household to have at least one person trained in this skill as it can save life including loved ones.
It is hoped that with this course participants were able to gain knowledge and skill on first aid and life support and able to perform them effectively in emergency situation.
