How to do the Primary Survey – First Aid Training – St John Ambulance

A St John Ambulance trainer shows you how to give first aid to someone if you think they might be unresponsive or need your help. You’ll need to go through a primary survey every time you help someone. A primary survey is a series of first aid checks that will help you find out if someone has any life-threatening injuries or conditions.

    Hi there

    Though these videos are not formal training or a certification, can these procedures still be used in everyday life?

    Also I have a St John reference guide so would that also count?

  7. YoshiDX on November 22, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Thanks mate! I’m only in year 4, but I’m studying first aid cuz I wanna be a doctor!

    I am a 13 year old girl who wants to be a lifeguard at a pool when I’m older. Would this help me become a lifeguard at a pool? I can’t be a lifeguard at the sea bc I hate the sea. but somebody please respond to me. Would DR ABC help me? Also I have a very loud voice so I can call for help and somebody would hear me. I want to be a lifeguard bc I want to help ppl and I want to be a hero one. Normally people think of hero’s as men but I’m a girl so 8 want to prove ppl wrong. I know nobody really wanted to know all of this but I wanted to say it👍🏻👍🏻😀😀

  32. Tiny Butterfly on November 22, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    Maybe in your videos you could look for symptoms or what too look for before approaching and or helping

  40. uBenji1234 on November 22, 2020 at 9:54 pm

    So if they are not breathing I start doing mobile phone calls? – Isn’t it better to initiate cpr at once?
