Panic! – baby’s stopped breathing

No panic, however, if you have been on the Adult First Aid course for senior cadets that took place at the Training Centre last weekend.  Lt Steve Frampton was the instructor that ensured that cadets FA11are able to provide expert resuscitation on babies, young people and adults alike.  While the techniques are similar, the cadets learned the importance of giving just the right amounts of both pressure to the body and breath into the lungs.  Like the CFAVs on their recent first weekend the cadets will return in a couple of weeks for more practical training and assessment.  In spite of some unusual attempts at the start of the period, all the cadets got the hang of it before too long –  and no mannequin suffered too much during the course of the weekend.
