Medical Emergency on Charter, Be Prepared for the Unknown – Understanding Illness & Injury in a Child or Elderly guest

What can you do to prepare and care for guests of a wide age range and with unknown medical history? In this introductory session we will look at identifying and treating common illnesses and injuries that can arise during charter, focusing specifically on children and the elderly. We will cover diabetes, anaphylaxis and fractures from a fall, and the session will include practical use of splinting techniques, with particular reference on the above age groups. We will also use the Tempus unit to take vital signs, and look at techniques to consider when using the unit in a small child or elderly person.
