First Aid management is an integral part of handling emergencies. There was a need to give a basic training to the drivers and the support staff as our students are with them during bus travel.
Thus, a session was taken by Dr. Nidha Ayoob from Asian Medical Centre. She covered topics like CPR, unconsciousness, epistaxis, head injuries, and how to manage them.
She also gave a hands-on training on how to use the First Aid Box placed in the bus.
Asian Medical Centre also conducted a free medical camp as their CSR. All the drivers and support staff were assessed for their basic health parameters, vital signs, blood sugar and lipids.
