Question: Would you know how to find your nearest heart defibrillator and if required how to use it?
Courtesy of British Cycling’s education programme support team, and in association Jen Isherwood from the Edinburgh Academy and a member of one of Scotland’s Mountain Rescue Teams, we have been provided with a series of YouTube links to First Aid material that provides a wealth of guidance from how to conduct a vital signs assessment, the difference between ‘big-sick and little-sick’, to performing COVID compliant CPR, dealing with Hypothermia, placing a patient in the recovery position, and of course how to use a Defibrillator. And why managing your mindset and humour is important to your wellbeing, and also a link to a brilliant locator app called ‘what3words’.
As Jen explains throughout the YouTube videos, with practice and reflection these tools could become skills for life for any member who would like to learn a little more about dealing with a medical emergency, whether during a club ride, at home with your family, or out and about conducting your everyday business.
