Overview:

The first aiders are called to a patient who has injured their leg playing rugby. In the tackle, the patient's lower leg moved over 90 degrees in the wrong direction around the knee and they are now in a lot of pain. The patient's team mates have called the first aiders over. This scenario is a test of dealing with a sporting related trauma and gets them to investigate the injury fully to ensure they don't miss circulation and sensation abnormalities beyond the point of the injury.

The first aiders are at an event but are called into a home to see a gentleman in his 30's with abdominal pain. They find the patient lying in their bed with their knees up to reduce the pain, leaning over and in evident pain.

Overview:

Another great scenario that tests airway management in a patient who has taken a concoction of alcohol and other recreational drugs. The first aiders are called into a cafe to a young female who is reported as very drunk. On arrival, the patient is slumped on a chair and voice responsive, occasionally vomiting. A patient's relative is also on scene and says that the patient has been drinking all day and might have taken other stuff but not really sure. The nearest first aid post (HCP led) is about 300m away with no vehicle access to the cafe.

Overview:

This one is about a child who has tripped and fallen down some stairs and landed on their head and shoulder. The child's head and neck was bent back in the collision with the ground but the child only complains of pain in their shoulder because it seems much worse than the smaller pain in their neck. This scenario is designed to test the first aiders with a distracting injury from a potentially more serious one on a child (a patient group that tests different communication skills for example). The child's parent can be with them to help explain the mechanism.

Overview:

The first aiders are covering an event in a small town and are approached by a someone who says that they have chest pain. The patient has known angina and the situation will get better after they have taken their GTN spray. This is a relatively easy scenario that gives first aiders a chance to investigate a chest pain and to distinguish the difference between angina and a heart attack.

Overview:

This scenario is designed to test out the first aiders in a resuscitation situation where the patient is in a small space that does not allow good quality CPR to be carried out and will hopefully get them to consider their options for possibly moving the patient to a more accessible place. On arrival, the first aiders will find one patient who is not breathing. They were called by the bar manager who was checking the toilets at the end of the night and found the patient wedged in close to the toilet.
