Accidents happen. Ordinary people with little medical training may find themselves in situations in which someone has suffered a traumatic injury, in a rural or austere environment where resources may be miles away.
This course is designed to provide people with no medical background, specifically farmers and family members, with the basic lifesaving skills necessary to treat an injured family member or coworker until help arrives. First responders may also take the course. The 4-hour course teaches students how to stop massive bleeding; deal with breathing problems; treat burns, broken bones, eye injuries, Chemical injuries, and hypothermia; and What treatment options are available for someone trapped in a machine, grain bin, or manure pit.
