Lifesaving first aid is now set to be included in the national school curriculum following years of campaigning.

It may be long overdue, but compulsory first aid training in all schools in the UK is finally becoming a reality, as The Department of Education recently announced that all children will be required to learn First Aid under various proposals that have been put forward by the government.

Although Edna is unable to customise super suits for people that suffer from epilepsy to control their seizures in the same way she does for superheroes to control their powers-remember, no capes! She can bring you the lesson in our First Aid Tips which is how you can help someone that is experiencing a seizure.

When packing for your holiday, there are a few not-so-typical items that people do not always think of or consider, but should definitely be on your checklist when preparing to go away.

Safety should be taken into account at all times, especially when you are away from home.

The next member of our First Aid Fanatics crew, Danny is up next to talk you through defibrillation so that you can combine this along with CPR to save a person’s life if ever you were to find yourself dealing with a cardiac emergency.

Sudden cardiac arrest affects 60,000 people a year in the UK. Without treatment, 90-95% of SCA victims will not survive. If a defibrillator is used and effective CPR is performed within 3-5 minutes of the cardiac arrest occurring, the chance of survival increases from 6%-74%.
