The Medic: Bandaging & Splinting Workshop - 2020, Herbal Medics Academy, Saturday, 09. May 2020

Many emergency first aid skills can be forgotten if you don’t use them on a regular basis.  In the panic of an emergency, it is easy to forget the techniques and when you should use a certain method to secure an injured limb.  
This is a 4-hour hands on workshop where we will go over bandaging and splinting techniques for the lower body and then spend the morning reviewing and practicing each method to get in lots of practice! The more you do these skills, the more comfortable you will be with them when they are needed, and the more effective they will be.

Ankle injuries – inversion and eversion sprains

Diagnosis in the field: how to determine a sprain or strain injury

Hands – on: The Ankle Wrap
