About this Event

Would you know what to do if a customer was choking?

This course aims to provide people working in the hospitality industry potentially life saving skills needed to help someone should they experience difficulties breathing.

Choking happens when a person’s airway suddenly gets blocked, either fully or partly, so they can't breathe. This information applies to adults and children over 1 year old.

This can often be the result of foreign object such as food lodges itself in the windpipe obstructing the airway. Young children can often swallow small objects.

Because choking cuts off oxygen to the brain, it is essential to give first aid as quickly as possible.

This course is designed to give people working in the hospitality industry in Stockton and Hartlepool the basic skills needed to help someone should they experience difficulties.

North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust are running a series of workshops covering:

The training session will include:-

• Theory behind the need for basic life support.

• Initial assessment, Airway, breathing and circulation.

• Practical skills in basic life support

• Difference between adult and children’s resuscitation

• Discussion of the choking algorithm (Adult and child)

• Practical in adult abdominal trust and back blows

• Practical skills on child choking.

• Free practice and questions at the end

The sessions are hosted by Keith Dalley and Lisa Blom, Clinical Educators at the Trust and all delegates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion of the course.
