Super Medics® is a collection First Aid training courses and teaching materials designed for children in Key Stage 2 and 3 (Ages 7 – 14). The course covers all the key information that children need to know from the basics of first aid and reacting in a difficult situation through to how to get help, understanding more about the body and treating the different types of injuries. Would you know what to do & when you need to call 999?
The Super Medics team guide learners through their First Aid courses, introducing Tom, Sarah, Pippa and Charlie, coming to the help of those who need it throughout Super Medics First Aid Courses.
What to expect when you call 999. How to get the help needed and what you can do to help an injured person whilst you are waiting for help to arrive.
What to look out for when you find someone you think is injured. How to find out more about what has happened and examples of questions to ask to find out more.
What to do in the case of a cardiac arrest. How to carry out the necessary checks before you start CPR, what to do during CPR and how to use a defibrillator (AED).
What happens when the ambulance arrives, how to update people on what you’ve done to look after an injured person and how you can continue to help.
Like the best things created, Super Medics was born out of necessity. Super Medics’® author, Hannah Alsbury-Morris, wrote the course as there wasn’t anything informative & engaging of the standard she required when she wanted to start teaching First Aid to Children.
As an Ambulance Service CFR Tutor, and an experienced First Responder Team Leader, Hannah used her knowledge and the support of healthcare professionals such as Paramedics and Paediatric A&E Nurses to develop the course. Super Medics is written by people who all have hands-on experience of treating patients in response to both paediatric and adult emergency 999 calls.
Throughout the development of Super Medics we’ve consistently involved Key Stage 2 pupils in the development of our workbook. All medical text in the Super Medics book has the oversight of a registered Paramedic & their many years of clinical experience.
