Our series of free CPR practice sessions continues, proving to be very popular. The “drop in” nature of the sessions means that you can come along and learn some basic, but potentially life saving, skills or if already trained just have a practice. At Lazarus Training we know how busy everyone is, so we bring the sessions to you, running them in play centres, gyms, workplaces and activity centres.
Running the courses in these places makes them very informal, so if you see us don’t hesitate to come over and say hello.

Prevention is better than cure, so stay safe this bonfire night. But if someone was to get burnt remember the following simple steps:
Cool it down– use water to cool the burnt area. The cooling should continue for a few minutes at least, but more typically 10 minutes to ensure the area is really cool.
Cover it up– cover the burnt area with something clean and hopefully sterile. In emergencies a wet towel is often used, but ensure whatever is used will not stick to the burnt area and that it isn’t wrapped to tight- burnt hands and limbs often swell up.
If outside be careful that only the burnt area is cooled and that the person isn’t soaked, they will often get very cold, very quick.
If the burn is blistered or any clothing or material is stuck to the burnt area, do not interfere with this, just cover over the top.
Anything but the smallest of burns should be treated seriously, particularly in children. A rough guide in adults is any burn[s] the size of the persons hand or bigger, or in a child – bigger than a 50 pence piece should be professionally assessed.
Our training team has years of experience of providing medical assistance in challenging environments. This intimate knowledge of the realities of providing frontline medical care, allows us to deliver carefully balanced training courses for those finding themselves remote from medical facilities.
With practical experience of care at altitude, in deserts, jungles and the arctic we understand the importance of being self sufficient and proficient in providing long term care.
