Have you ever come across an injury requiring some assistance until professional medical help can be obtained?   Everyone has and being prepared for the unexpected injury is a responsible approach to family, neighbor and community associations.  Often times the injury is frightening – cuts bleed heavily, broken bones contort limbs and burns can be overwhelming.  Knowing how to handle an injury with appropriate basic first aid is reassuring to the victim and a confidence booster to you as the caregiver.

How do you find the kind of training that brings a strong, solid set of skills for handling that unexpected injury?

According to the American Heart Association, the definition of Basic First Aid is “The assessments and interventions that can be performed by a bystander (or by the victim) with minimal or no medical equipment. A first aid provider is defined as someone with formal training in first aid, emergency care, or medicine who provides first aid.” [1]

From the most recent revision of the American Heart Association information regarding Basic First Aid training classes, it states “the history of first aid can be traced to the dawn of organized human societies….Native American Sioux medicine men of the Bear Society were noted for treating battle injuries, fixing fractures, controlling bleeding…” [2]
