Learn first-aid skills from the professionals this weekend as TK Park joins up with the Narenthorn Emergency Medical Services System (EMS) Centre of Rajvithee Hospital in hosting the “First Aid Part 3” exhibition at its premises on the eighth floor of CentralWorld. 

    Research has shown that most members of the public have no idea how to help accident victims while waiting for the emergency unit to arrive. 

    Steps that can and should be taken to help will be explained and demonstrated, with participants also invited to practise such techniques as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), evaluation of the unconscious patient, how to call the emergency hotline, how to help those who have wounds and broken bones. Instruction in primary care for such common ailments as flu, diarrhoea and headache will also be provided.

The exhibition runs from Saturday (March 18) to March 25. For more information, call (02) 2574300 extension 226.
