First Aid ITDs

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone have a copy of the Army ITD's for First Aid? I am after them for ACF Training purposes and don't want to relay on the St Johns boring as **** training.

    Please pm me if you can help

  3. Careful. Battlefield First Aid isn't the same as "peacetime" First Aid. There's less risk of litigation, for a start.
  4. I'm a British Red Cross first Aid instructor in my spare time. If you get in touch with your local BRC branch I'm pretty sure they'll be happy to help you with up to date protocols :thumright:

  5. The litigation risk is blown out of all proportion in the UK. As I understand it only two cases have ever made it into a courtroom and the one that was ruled in favor of the first aiders involved was (in my opinion) the one that should have been successful!

    As a rule to live by: don't do more than your qualified or trained to do. Given the constant dumbing down of the protocols you'd have to be an absolute guttersurfing mong to screw up badly enough to find yourself being dragged into court.
  6. get a life, stop showing off to the little kiddies PieMan
