Today at Nexus, a group of prospective doctors attended a workshop delivered by trainee doctors from the Peninsula Medical School. The students were taught the basics of emergency management of patients, including the immediate remedial measures to take if someone starts to choke. The medical school hopefuls were also introduced to the steps they should take if they were to come across an unresponsive patient.
The workshop concluded with the students learning CPR using resuscitation dummies. The session was great fun and the future medics all had the opportunity to ask questions of the trainees and left with a much clearer idea of what steps to take on their journey towards medicine.
