The best first aid training videos
Showing videos during first aid training is a great way to make first aid classes more fun and interactive! Videos also help highlight some key first aid points such as the importance of early CPR and defibrillation in cardiac arrest.
Here’s our list of the best first aid training videos we’ve found on YouTube:
Bondi Beach resuscitation
A classic first aid training video! This shows lifeguards on Bondi Beach resuscitating a patient pulled from the water. It shows the patient in a pattern of breathing known as agonal breathing.
Also the video is good for highlighting the importance of early CPR and defibrillation. The protocols shown in the video are out of date.
The bystander effect
This shocking video shows bystanders walking past someone in need of help due to a phenomenon known as ‘The Bystander Effect’. This video is good for promoting discussion in first aid training about why people might not act during an emergency situation
Epilepsy first aid
This video is produced by Epilepsy Action, a charity based in the United Kingdom. It demonstrates nicely the first aid for a seizure as well as showing what a full blown tonic-clonic seizure looks like.
So perhaps this isn’t 100% accurate….but this video is a great way to break the ice or put nerves at ease during a first aid course! One of our favourites.
