The training consisted of 4 first aid stations. On the first Mark went through the primary survey in detail using the DRCABCDE principle.
On the next station the team got to play with the training oxygen looking at the different breathing aids and masks.
The third station involved packing up a team member in our cas bag and vacuum mattress and
The final station was practicing using the pelvic binder and traction splint.
