First Aid training becomes more prominent every year with an increased emphasis on ensuring people are trained to act in emergency situations, with more than 30,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests each year it is easy to see why more people are now receiving training and more AED units are being introduced throughout public areas.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) have been conducting their research for over 50 years and helped to halve the death rates seen from cardiovascular disease. As well as this, certain situations such as cardiac arrests and heart attacks now have more advanced instant treatments, for those people who aren’t trained modern day AED units will talk you through the whole process of treating someone including when the shock will happen and when to apply CPR. However, the foundations of First Aid that we still use have been around for many years. Peter Safar and James Elam invented mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. In 1957, The United States military adopted the mouth-to-mouth resuscitation method to revive unresponsive victims. Then in 1960 Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was developed, meaning CPR as we know it has been known for over 50 years yet some people still do not know how to use it.

There is an estimated 915,000 people alive in the United Kingdom alone that have survived a heart attack, showcasing the importance of continued progress in the research to treat heart conditions. The more people that receive training and purchase an AED unit the more we are likely to see these figures increased over the coming years.

First Aid is not only focused on treating any heart conditions that may occur, other skills can be learnt to treat a range of what may be considered more common injuries. Incidents happen on a daily basis within offices and public areas which may cause injuries requiring treatment, these could include broken bones, cuts, burns and illnesses.

There are a number of different first aid training courses that people can select from when completing their training, courses vary in length depending on the content that delegates want to learn. This enables people to learn about different areas and specifically focus on areas which will be most likely to happen in their everyday environment.
