NICA Approved First Aid is the assessment of and treatment given to an ill or injured person in any environment where definitive care is less than one hour away. When NICA activities, practices or races, are held more than one hour from definitive care, then Wilderness First Aid training for L3 coaches is required.
This course covers the types of injuries and illnesses encountered by student athletes, coaches, and volunteers and will emphasize the assessment, treatment, and prevention of medical emergencies. We will cover the immediate actions taken to assess a scene, determine MOI, stabilize a trauma patient, stabilization of bone and joint injuries, wound care, and issues such as dehydration, respiratory distress, and traumatic brain injuries.
Please bring water, snacks, and lunch with you. There will not be time to leave to go get lunch.
Wear older clothes that you can get dirty and possibility get wound makeup on. Everyone will have a chance to be a patient during a scenario.
Be prepared to take notes outside, you may want to bring a folding chair.
We will be under a pavilion at the park for a portion of the class. Other times we will be out in the woods doing first aid scenarios. Please be prepared for the weather. Unless it is storming, we will be out in light rain.
