5 Reasons Why Should you Learn First Aid in Phuket?

First Aid does more than help save lives

Most people think that First Aid is all about saving lives, in part this is true. However, giving appropriate first aid immediately can help to reduce a person’s recovery time. Early first aid can also make and the difference between the patient having a temporary or long-term disability. With some simple acronyms to help you recall the steps you need to take, providing first aid is made easy. First aid training will give you confidence and make you more comfortable and therefore you will be more effective and in control when someone needs your assistance.

First Aid enables you to increase patient comfort


Not all accidents, injuries or illnesses require hospitalization, however this doesn’t mean the patient is not in pain or suffering.A child crying because of a sore knee or with a fever is in pain and is suffering. By knowing how to act – even just by employing simple techniques such as applying appropriate bandaging By doing this you will go a long way to helping their discomfort. You will also be able to offer emotional support by remaining calm which will reduce the patient’s anxiety levels.

First aid prevents the situation from becoming worse

There are some situations where if a patient was not to receive basic first aid care straight away their situation will deteriorate. This can occur rapidly. You will learn to provide basic care you can stabilize a patient until emergency medical services arrive. You will learn how to use basic household items as tools if a first aid kit is not available meaning that you’ll be able to cope with many situations.
You’ll also be trained in how to collect information and data about what happened and the patients’ condition. This information will be passed on to the emergency services, which saves them time – you will be a valuable link in the chain of survival.

First aid creates your confidence to care

Being able to provide basic first aid knowledge means that you will be self-confident in your skills and abilities in providing first aid assistance. By taking first aid training in Phuket, it helps you to reflect on yourself and how you and others react with others you are assisting. This will boost your confidence in a wide range of non-medical day to day situations.

First Aid encourages healthy and safe living

Your own safety is priority when performing first aid so that is one of the first things you will learn. We all need to be in good health, however it important that you are in good health is you want to help others. The course will touch on the importance of healthy living and how lifestyle habits. Knowing this makes you more aware of your own health and alerts you to potential hazards within your surroundings.

Do I Need to Know How To Swim to Scuba Dive?

This is a question that I often get asked, and really it is not as simple as YES or NO. Here is some explanations and reasons why.

There is alternate option and that is you do a 300 metre mask, fin and snorkel swim. Some do find this easier to the 200 swim. You also have to be able to tread water or float for at least 10 minut [...]
