Today we went to the Queens Medical Centre Hospital in Nottingham. It was very interesting to learn about how to save lives and what to do when we are faced with an emergency. We can all help someone now by remembering DR's ABC.
D is for Danger
R is for response
S is for shout
A is for Airway
B is for Breathing
C is for CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation)
We were taught how to put someone in the recovery position and deal with someone who has been injured but isn't unconscious.
We were taken on a tour of the Children's Ward and shown lots of the different pieces of equipment that is used such as a pulse and oxygen monitor and the needle used for stitching up nasty cuts. Afterwards we all had our fingers put into plaster - it was lots of fun and we learnt a lot about what goes on in a hospital and most importantly how to cope if we see someone injured.
