Our HLTAID004 course provides participants with the skills to manage emergencies and provide support before the arrival of paramedics. This unit provides the skills and knowledge required to provide a first aid response to a casualty. The unit applies to all people who may be required to provide a first aid response in a range of situations, including community and workplace settings.

Amongst the topics covered are CPR, cardiac emergencies, burns, envenomation, fractures and dislocations, head injuries, legal aspects, poisoning, medical emergencies such as diabetes, seizures and stroke, respiratory emergencies such as asthma and anaphylaxis, shock, temperature extremes, and wounds and bleeding.  Further information is covered related to normal health values for children and infants, differences in anatomy compared to adults, febrile convulsions, meningococcal infection, pain assessment and management, and responsiveness assessment.
