In this series of videos, we will learn the basics and fundamental practices of First Aid.
First Aid is the first and immediate assistance given to any person suffering from either a minor or serious illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery.
Here, St John Ambulance trainer Winston Marshall demonstrates how to go through a primary survey every time you help someone who has suffered an injury. A primary survey is a series of First Aid checks that will help you determine if someone has sustained any life-threatening injuries or conditions.
The primary survey’s steps can be remembered by the letters DRABC, which stand for:
St John Ambulance is a volunteer-led, charitable non-governmental organisation dedicated to the teaching and practice of First Aid, and the support of the national emergency response system in England.
