Have your New Year’s Resolutions gone out of the window already? Perhaps it would be easier to put your diet on hold, at least until after Pancake Day... or Easter. Plus there’s really no point in starting up that strict exercise regime until the weather gets a little warmer – icicles on your running trainers? Ain’t nobody got time for that.
But on the road to self-improvement it’s good to start as you mean to go on, so rather than putting off your goals until the spring, why not start off by learning a new set of skills with the potential to save lives?
In our previous blog post, we highlighted the issues surrounding emergency response times and the impact that they can have in life-threatening situations. We also promoted the benefits of learning first aid so that individuals can step in and do everything in their power to help save casualties in a critical condition.
However, in some instances, individuals will not have access to the advanced medical equipment needed to provide effective treatment for the patient. Sudden cardiac arrest is a prime example of one of these instances.

However, the same cannot be said for the aircraft.
