When there is an emergency and there is a person around who has basic medical knowledge, the knowledge they have has the potential to minimize the impact of an injury or even save someone’s life. There are several courses available to teach people first aid and basic CPR.
Many people shy away from getting medical education because they feel that things like becoming a dialysis patient care technician are just too difficult to do. When an emergency does happen, they regret not taking the time to improve their base of medical knowledge.
If you spoke to anyone who has received training as a dialysis patient care technician, they will tell you that the time and effort put into the training is more than worth it.
Having a basic understanding of first aid and CPR is not just a matter of saving people’s lives. Sometimes, being able to administer emergency medical care can improve a patient’s recovery time. It could mean the difference between a person recovering well from a serious injury and a serious injury that will leave them disabled long-term.
As with anything, the more knowledge you have about medicine, the better equipped you are to handle stressful situations when they arise. A person who has medical training can stay calm during an emergency. It allows them to react in a controlled way, assesses the situation accurately, and then use their training and knowledge to make decisions that can improve the outcome of the injured person.
