BRAYDEN MANIKIN DEMONSTRATION AT THE FAIB CONFERENCE (CHESHIRE) 18TH OCTOBER 2018

BRAYDEN ILLUMINATING CPR MANIKIN DEMONSTRATION

Paul Mulvey from WELMedical demonstrated the award winning ILLUMINATING CPR MANIKIN by BraydenManikin.

This is the first manikin that helps you visualise the effects of CPR. Three interrelated sets of LED lights give real time feedback of CPR performance and function: Chest compression indicating lights, blood circulation indicating lights, and a CPR quality indicating light.

Brayden uses advanced built-in sensors to detect and analyse the effectiveness of CPR. These sensors are set to a default value to detect compression’s in line with current (2010) CPR guidelines.

Ian married Kay in June 2018 and, instead of wedding presents, we asked our guests for a small contribution towards an oil painting as a ‘Wedding Memory’, we also wanted to make a donation to a Local Charity.

A colleague from within the FAIB Advisory Panel asked our Training Providers if they would like to make a donation towards the purchase of the Defibrillator for our chosen charity ‘Reuben’s Retreat’.

Overwhelmed by the kindness of our friends, family and Training Providers, today we have been able to supply a Cardiac Science Defibrillator to the Charity.

We would like to say a massive thank you to everybody for their support and generosity and also to Cardiac Science for helping us achieve our wish.

The First Aid Industry Body Fully Supports the Government In Its plans to Introduce First Aid in Schools

The First Aid Industry Body Fully Supports the Government In Its plans to Introduce First Aid in Schools.

On the 19th July 2018 the Education Secretary Damian Hinds announced that all schools will teach children about good physical and mental health, under the proposals, all pupils will study compulsory health education.

The guidance which was last updated in 2000, will become compulsory in all schools across the country from September 2020.

The (draft) Guidance Paper (Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education) includes aspects of Basic First Aid.

By the end of Primary School, Pupils should know:

  • how to make a clear and efficient call to Emergency Services
  • the concepts of basic First Aid, for example dealing with common injuries including head injuries.

For Secondary School, Pupils should know:

  • basic treatment for common injuries
  • life saving skills, including how to administer CPR
  • the purpose of defibrillators and when one might be used

The First Aid Industry Body (FAIB) particularly welcome this announcement because Ian Kershaw MBE (ex-Head of First Aid with the Health & Safety Executive for 12 years) has been active in speaking to the Department for Education and Lobbying Members of Parliament for First Aid to be included in Schools for a number of years.

We have also been actively supporting other Groups and Organisations across the United Kingdom who teach and promote the basics of First Aid from the Early Years stage.

The consultation (in the form of an on-line survey) takes place from 19th July 2018-7 November 2018.

FAIB will provide our Registered Training Providers and Trainers/Assessors with further advice and guidance as and when we receive it as well as information about the on-line survey if required.    

**REMINDER** FAIB/FOFATO STOCKPORT Conference/Annual General Meeting Thursday 18th October 2018 & Life Connections Conferences

The FAIB/FOFATO STOCKPORT Conference/Annual General Meeting will take place on Thursday 18th October 2018 (starting at 9.00 for 9.30 am) at the Regis Suite Alma Lodge Hotel, Stockport, SK2 6EL

Please click the link HERE to download a registration form for the Cheshire Conference.

We have decided NOT to run the Conference in Stevenage this year however Life Connections are holding a First Aid Conference in Aylesbury on Thursday 6th September 2018 (which is not that far from Stevenage) where there will be a presence from FAIB/FOFATO. (See below information)

Following our previous message in March 2018 and following our attendance at the Life Connections (Harrogate, North Yorkshire) Conference in March 2018, the First Aid Industry Body are pleased to announce that we have made an agreement to work with Terry Gardner of Life Connections in order to offer a number of Regional Conferences across the United Kingdom starting in 2019.

Life Connections have been involved in many successful Conferences across the United Kingdom for a number of years.

The Life Connections concept is to run a number of Conferences and workshops (First Aid, First Responder, Resuscitation and Paramedic) in the same venue and on the same day.

This concept allows greater numbers to attend and to spend time looking around the Exhibitors (as well as Networking) who are situated in the main hall of the venue.

FAIB/FOFATO Conferences have usually only included a small number of Exhibitors however using the Life Connections concept we will be able to include many more.

We have always received very good feedback from the FAIB/FOFATO Conferences and are therefore not going to change the way they are run. However working with Life Connections it will give us the opportunity to include workshops and practical sessions.

FAIB have agreed to promote the Life Connections First Aid Conferences in 2018 in Aylesbury on Thursday 6th September 2018 and in Stoke-on-Trent on Thursday 25th October 2018. FAIB/FOFATO will also be attending the Aylesbury and Stoke-on-Trent Conferences in 2018.

If you wish to book a place at any of the Life Connections Conferences then please contact Terry Gardner on 01322 660434 or visit www.lifeconnections.uk.com for further information.
We will let you know as soon as we have the dates and venues for the 2019 Conferences and as always would like you to let us have your thoughts and ideas about the topics or guest speakers that you would like us to include.
