First aid course in the EGTC Via Carpatia.

First aid is a key to saving lives and everyone should know the basics. We are aware of this at EGTC Via Carparia, that is why we completed the first aid course provided by the Nursing Department of the Faculty of Medicine of the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice.

In the course, we learned how to act in case of first aid, how to determine if the person is breathing, when and how to start the resuscitation. Last but not least, the speaker gave us detailed information and instructions on how to use the portable defibrillator, which is publicly available in several places in Košice. We could try all these procedures in practice.

The first aid course has been a great benefit to us and we recommend it to everyone who wants to know how to respond quickly in a difficult situation.
