Pre Hospital Options First aid

Many organizations, including the Red Cross, Red Crescent, and Scouts, teach basic and advanced first aid courses. Because of the long distances to medical services, some states train farm families in advanced first aid techniques.

First aid courses concentrate on control of bleeding, control of the airway, covering the wound, splinting, preventing shock, and evacuation techniques.

Ireland equips rural physicians with portable trauma kits to provide advanced trauma life support. The Donegal Pre-hospital Emergency Care Project equipped general practioners with the kits and found a significant improvement in pre-hospital survival (34).
