In-flight medical emergencies can develop suddenly and without warning. Refreshing and demonstrating aviation first aid knowledge, skills and abilities on an annual basis can boost confidence and make a real difference when faced with a range of inflight medical emergencies, both in flight and on the ground.
The aircraft environment is unique. Working at high altitude can bring many risks and dangers to aircrew. Decompression and Hypoxia Awareness Training is designed to provide aircrew with an understanding of the risks working at altitude can bring, develop the skills to identify these risks, and how to manage themselves, passengers, and the cabin environment, in a decompression or hypoxic situation. There is good evidence to indicate that such training works and saves lives.
