Curtis’ day was very quiet!
Curtis had some admin to do when he got to the office and then he completed a laptop setup for a laptop he started configuring yesterday.
Once that was done, Curtis had a meeting but it was interupted by needing to help people in the boardroom with the meeting they were having.
Curtis completed his meeting after helping people and then did a bit of project work.
Curtis got another laptop setup and then it was the end of the day!
Curtis received his hockey equipment at work so had to walk that home.
Today in the course they focused on Airway Management. At the beginning they went through patient positioning, this covered how you would manoeuvre a person from standing to lying on their back. From lying on their stomach to their back and finally from lying on their back to lying in the recovery position. Then there was a quiz to go over everything that had been taught so far.
The rest of the morning covered airway and breathing on a conscious person. In this they covered both partial and complete airway blockages and how to dislodge a complete blockage through hitting the patients back, using the abdomonal thrusts and chest thrusts. In this section they also covered CPR and the use of an AED / defibrillator. With each new skill there was a demonstration and then everyone got to practise.
In the afternoon everyone covered airway and breathing for an unresponsive patient. There were also assessments with scenarios where people would be called upon to preform CPR on a dummy alone while being watched by the instructor. The instructor said Kim did well!
Curtis got home and tried on his hockey kit. It all fit perfectly, which was excellent!
He got all of the equipment together and went down to the garage to put it there.
Kim did a bit of homework and studying for her first aid and Curtis made sloppy joe’s for dinner.
We watched some videos and then Kim did some more research.
We finished the evening with a bit of TV and then went to sleep.
