Event description

Description

Do you ever wonder what you would do if you were in the backcountry and you broke your wrist or ankle? If someone hits their head whilst skiing, how do you know if it is a concussion, or if it's a small brain bleed? If someone has a Frostbitten finger, is it more dangerous to rewarm it, or to keep it frozen? What should you do?

Join us at the Escape Route for #3 of our 4 part Winter First Aid series, featuring FIRST AID FOR SKI TOURING.

This interactive workshop will focus on recognition and treatment of

  • FROSTBITE
  • CONCUSSION
  • HAND & WRIST INJURIES
  • LOWER LEG INJURIES

There will be a case based discussion, followed by the oppportunity to practise your splinting skills.

Come and improve your basic first aid skills, with a fully qualified doctor and wilderness first aid instructor. Tickets to this are $12. $5 from each ticket goes to POW (Protect our Winters). There will be prizes from Fatmap, The Escape Route, and great discounts on First Aid courses.

We are limited to 30 spaces, so book your tickets soon to avoid disappointment!
