Overview:

This scenario tests the first aiders in a resuscitation scenario where there is an obvious cause of the arrest (a catastrophic bleed) to show that CPR isn't always the only thing that should be done in a resus - we should be looking for any reversible causes of arrest. On arrival, the first aiders will find the patient in a large pool of blood with no-one else around.

Overview:

This scenario is all about recognising and reacting to an often deadly thunderclap headache. This needs the FAs/ambulance crew to be on their toes to react quickly and not just dismiss this as a headache or early hangover. This tests: the ability to recognise serious illness, taking a very rapid history, unconscious casualty management. Situation: You are on a booze bus duty and it has just hit 4 AM. A man who looks like he is in his 50s bursts in to the room. He is clearly distressed - he is clutching his head and lets out a scream of agony. He smells of alcohol but does not seem that drunk. Upon questioning, he says he has the worst headache he has ever had in his life and that it feels like he has been hit in the back of the head with a baseball bat.

Overview:

The first aiders are called to a patient who has recently been chucked out of a nightclub for being aggressive but now seems to have reduced conciousness and is slumped unresponsive against a wall near the nightclub. A patient's friend is with her and insists they've only 'had a few vodka and cokes' but is acting fair drunk themselves. The friend is unaware that the patient is a type 1 insulin dependent diabetic and does not drink and so has been having coke instead of vodka and coke. This scenario tests the first aiders ability to not assume that the patient is just drunk.

Overview:

The first aiders are covering a sports event and are called to one of the rugby pitches where it is reported that someone has been hurt when a scrum collapsed. On arrival, the first aiders will find the patient alert by lying in the position they were in when the scrum collapsed because they have pain in their neck and everyone was a bit worried to move them. But they'd quite like to start the match again and so will be encouraging the first aiders to move patient off of the pitch. The weather is pretty bad. This scenario tests query spinal injury management and working in cold and wet conditions.
