Overview:

This scenario sees the first aiders deal with someone who is hyperventilating whilst having a panic attack. Setting the scene: A friend of the patient calls you over to her friend who appears to be having difficulty breathing. Because of the patient's breathing issues, the friend will be the first aiders' main source of information to begin with. The friend will be able to tell the first aiders that the patient had just received a phone call telling her that she'd lost her job and then shortly afterwards her friend had got really panicked and started breathing quicker and quicker.

Overview:

The patient in this scenario has a relatively minor wound on their arm that in theory should be fairly easy to deal with. However, the patient speaks another language (take your pick) and speaks very little English creating a big communication barrier. The first aiders will need to find a way to ask questions and give advice. To set the scene: they are on patrol at an event when they are called over to this patient by a member of public who has seen someone's arm bleeding.

Overview:

This scenario is about dealing with a generally intoxicated patient who doesn't actually have much wrong with them - a patient we've probably all dealt with time and time again. The first aiders are called by some people who have passed a guy who is apparently just slumped against a wall down the road. On arrival, you will find a the patient who will be trying to pretend that they are actually asleep (and so will need a good response check). Once roused, they will be alert.

Overview:

The first aiders are called to a patient with a glow stick stuck in their eye after a joke went a bit wrong at a party. The scenario will test assessment skills and also get them to have to deal with a situation that is probably a bit outside the standard first aid course example! It will work best if you are able to work out a good way of getting a glow stick to look like it is poking out of the eye on the actor (obviously don't actually do it!).

Overview:

The patient in this scenario has been hit over the head with a chair and was knocked out. Some people found him lying on the ground outside a bar have called the first aiders over. As the first aiders arrive, the patient is coming round and is becoming more alert. This scenario should give practice in potential head and spinal injury management.

Overview:

The first aiders are called to an unconscious patient who has reportedly taken a large amount of different drugs. The patient is unable to protect their own airway and will have vomited with vomit blocking airway on first aider arrival. This scenario is therefore focusing on airway management in the unresponsive patient.

Overview:

This scenario is a challenging two patient scenario involving a fractured femur. The first aiders are called to a couple of guys in a bar where one of them seems to be in a massive amount of pain. It turns out that one of them was jumping off a table with the aim of being caught by his mate - Unfortunately his mate wasn't really ready to catch and so has ended up squashed underneath the guy who jumped (but with not much wrong with him). The guy who jumped off the table on the other hand has a fractured femur and is in huge amounts of pain and is lying on top of his mate.
