Un curs de prim ajutor…

Acum cateva saptamani in urma, am participat la un curs de prim ajutor, gratuit, organizat de catre o institutie din Constanta. Cu toate ca sunt instructor certificat EFR & DAN Europe, am vrut sa-mi reimprospatez informatia si sa vad si un alt punct de vedere, cursul fiind prezentat de catre personalul SMURD.

Nota: opinia prezenta este personala si nu implica nici una dintre partile mentionate.

Organizarea cursului a fost bine structurata si prezentata de catre cadrul activ SMURD Constanta. Prezenta a fost destul de numeroasa, undeva la 30 de persoane. Din pacate, majoritatea era mereu cu ochii pe ceas, interesul fiind probabil pentru certificatul de absolvire si mai putin pentru informatia prezentata.

S-au atins in detaliu procedurile de acordare a primului ajutor, in special a masajului cardio-respirator, atat la adulti cat si la copii precum si ajutorul secundar (electrocutari, inec etc).

Nu s-a discutat insa deloc despre folosirea echipamentelor automate de defibrilatie (Automated External Defibrilator sau Defibrilator Extern Automat) si despre administrarea oxygenului. (DEA incep sa fie din ce in ce mai prezente in spatiile publice aglomerate: aeroporturi, gari etc).

Cursul de baza SMURD a durat aproximativ 5 ore. Cursurile de voluntariat SMURD sunt insa mult mai complexe si depasesc cu mult nivelul de baza deoarece includ un numar foarte mare de ore de teorie si practica reala pe autospeciale SMURD.

Pentru comparatie, un curs de prim ajutor (Emergency First Response sau Basic Life Support & First Aid – DAN Europe) contra cost, dureaza intre 8 si 10h si include primul ajutor (CPR) si ajutorul secundar (First Aid) in diverse situatii (electrocutari, arsuri, fracturi, inec etc), utilizarea defibrilatorului extern automat (demo cu simulari pe manechin) si acordarea primului ajutor folosind oxigenul. Sunt incluse materiale video detaliate si manuale (in format pdf) precum si teste finale. Numarul de participanti este restrans pentru o mai buna distributie a informatiei teoretice si practice.

Toate cursurile sunt in concordanta cu recomandarile ILCOR, ambele agentii (EFR & DAN Europe) fiind recunoscute de institutii internationale de renume: US Coast Guard, Italian Coast Guard, Finnish Boarder Guard, NOAA, ADC, Carabinieri, International Yacht Training, New Zealand Qualifications Authority, Korean Body Guard Martial Arts Association, National Academy of Sports Medicine US, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, American Council on Exercise etc. De asemenea cursurile EFR & DAN Europe sunt recunoscute si acceptate de catre agentiile certificatoare in domenul scufundarilor sportive (pentru nivelele profesionale Divemaster si superior – sunt obligatorii).

Alte cursuri disponibile sunt: Oxigen First Aid for Scuba Diving Injuries  & First Aid for Hazardous Marine Life Injuries (lista este insa mai extinsa).

Cursul mai sus mentionat a fost interesant, util dar din pacate, incomplet. De asemenea, numarul mare de participanti face imposibila distribuirea calitativa a informatiei fiecarui participant in parte. Evident, cantitatea si calitatea informationala detinuta de personalul SMURD este impresionanta, cu mult peste ceea ce poate asimila in cateva ore o persoana obisnuita, neimplicata in activitate de prim ajutor sau medicala!

Cursurile EFR & DAN Europe sunt valabile 2 ani de zile dupa care se recomanda refacerea lor din cel putin doua motive: 1) regulat apar modificari in practicile recomandate si 2) ca personal non-profesional, lipsa practicii regulate duce la diluarea/pierderea informatiei asimilate anterior. Personalul paramedic efectueaza aceste reimprospatari mult mai des si mai intens in baze special amenajate.

Nu lasa evenimentele neplacute sa te prinda nepregatit, indiferent ca esti la locul de munca, pe strada sau acasa!
