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:

A simple scenario that gets people dealing with the common situation where someone has fainted. The first aiders are at a training session with a number of people who are new to first aid. The heating has been on all day in the building and there are loads of gory pictures up on the screen for the session. Once of the new people has collapsed onto their desk right in front of the first aiders that your scenario is for.

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.

Overview:

This scenario is a quick and simple one to get people warmed up at the beginning of a scenarios session that tests people on their very basic primary survey for an unresponsive patient with no obvious/apparent reason for them to be unresponsive. The first aiders will arrive to find the patient lying face down, unresponsive.

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!).
