                            The Red Cross

Chairperson: Good afternoon, everyone. We’re delighted to welcome today a representative from the Red Cross, Mr John Francis, who is going to talk to us about the work of the organisation and about some basic aspects of First Aid.

John Francis: Thank you, Mr Bloom. Well, I’d like to start by giving you some background and then talk about what you would learn on one of our courses. Er, is everyone familiar with the work of the Red Cross?

The Red Cross movement was started by a man called Jean Henri Dunant who was a businessman fromSwitzerland. His interest in the condition of innocent people caught up in war began in 1859 when he witnessed the effects of a very grim battle inItaly. At the time, he organised all the villagers to help the wounded soldiers and make sure they had food and basic medical attention. A few years later, in 1864, the same gentleman, together with four Swiss colleagues, organised a conference which laid the foundations for the now. famous organisation. This was the First Geneva Convention.

So that Red Cross workers could always be recognised, they created their own emblem, rather like a country has its own flag. They chose a red cross on a white background.

The Red Cross operates in just about every country of the world, helping people caught up in famine and war and the emblem is internationally recognised as a symbol of protection and neutrality.

So concerned are the organisers of the Red Cross about the importance of their emblem that it is, in fact, protected by the laws of the Geneva Convention. Sometimes we find that the red cross has been used as a decorative symbol or to indicate first aid stations but this is actually wrong because using the emblem for anything other than the international organisation is actually against the law. Even though we tend to associate a red cross with hospitals and medical treatment… which, in a way, isn’t surprising, … in Australia, as in many countries, the recognised symbol for first aid and medical centres is not a red cross on a white background but, in fact, a white cross on a green background.

John Francis: Now that’s the global picture. But what about the local scene? I work for the Australian Red Cross and my job is to train people in basic first aid, which is the name we give to the initial care of the sick or injured.

There are four aims of First Aid, known as the four P’s. They are, first and foremost, to preserve life. That is the number one objective of the first aider. Then, the second aim is to protect the victim especially if the victim is actually unconscious. The third ‘P is to prevent the condition from getting worse and lastly to promote recovery. So that’s preserve life, protect the victim, prevent things from worsening and promote recovery. And we’ll be looking at all of those in some detail during the course.

As a trained First Aider, you could be called upon at any time because accidents invariably happen when they are least expected. Unfortunately, by far the most common cause of injury in our country is on the road, where motor vehicle accidents account for 45% of all accidents. This is followed -and you may be surprised to hear this — by people falling -falling out of windows or trees, falling off walls or simply falling over. Falls account for 21% of all accidents. Then there are accidents that happen at work where machinery is used. They account for 15% of the injuries. InAustralia, water is unfortunately another big cause for concern. Each year many people drown in swimming pools or at the beach and 7% of accidental injuries are related to water. Another cause of injury is poisoning. Our houses are full of products and chemicals for cleaning the floor or killing insects in the garden. Small children are particularly vulnerable here because they cannot read the warnings on the bottles and so poisoning accounts for 55 % of injuries.

Now, as a first aider you need a basic understanding of what the human body consists of and how it works. So we are going to start by looking at the organs…
