Third group A&E training started in Smouha Hospital, Alexandria (Egypt)

This first course week covered the objectives Airway and Breathing, combined with lecturing and practising in the classroom.

In the four weeks of the course these participants will be trained to work with the ABCDE method. This method will teach the participants a way of working to do no harm to the patient and most of all to “treat first what kills first”. An early recognition of changes in the vital signs of the patient will make it possible for the participants together with the doctors to bring the patient in a stable and hopefully better condition.

During the next 3 modules of A & E nursing (planned in March and April 2015) these participants will become more and more competent.

Topics covered in Module 1 are the A (airway) and B (breathing), primary and secondary survey, orientation, planning, giving treatment and evaluation.

Several lectures were given, subjects: airway management, CPR (basic life support lecture) and breathing subjects.

The group consisted of 11 nurses: ICU, A&E and some general nurses. It was a very enthusiastic group. One of the participants was a member of the TOT group, so she helped a lot by translating from English to Arabic.
