Medical First Responder Course
Medical Response skills are necessary for every individual because one never knows when the situation of emergency may arise in life. For those organizations where risk of medical emergencies is prominent, it should be their first priority to avoid any kind of mishaps.
A need assessment for the medical responder involves what kind of organization the participants belong to and what risks are involved with organization, most importantly the job role. Thereby, the participants need to know how to do assessment by careful evaluation of the patient and the scenario. Pak Health Consultants has designed the Medical First Responder course so as to help students in learning how to resource oxygen back for the patient in case of sudden drop in oxygen levels. Moreover, the training facilitates learners in knowing how to diagnose what the health emergency is in a patient. Through our efforts, we aim to produce trained MFR personnel who can quickly assist in case of a bone injury as well, particularly before the patient is able to reach a nearby hospital.
