野外救命救急 Brush Up

Wilderness First Aid Brush Up Event

Top_20120406232233.jpg

A lot of people after they take a First Aid Course are very proud of the certification card you get, and you should be, the day the course finished you became more adept at helping someone in an emergency with the skills you’ve learned. But after the course has been finished for a couple weeks, a couple of months, the knowledge and practical skills start to fade into memory, harder and harder to recollect.

In order to remain ready to react you need to from time to time refresh your memory and by doing so you make what you’ve learned become a part of you, and something you can use when the pressure is on. That is the purpose of the WMA Brush up Course and that is what we took part in last week.

We headed up by ferry, arriving in Osaka at 0630 on a rainy Saturday morning and then on to Mt. Kabuto in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture to take part. The menu for Saturday was for after a morning of introductions and a review of the Patient Assessment System the rest of the day was for multiple scenarios finishing with a night search involving 4 missing people and multiple rescuers. It was really a great experience.

The next day we woke to clearer skies and although we didn’t have any scenarios on the agenda we had a couple of really good lectures where we learned about various medications and which are best to use in the backcountry, How to call for an ambulance and practiced doing so. We also got a taste of WFR material with some lifts, litter packaging and evacuations.

After lunch those of us who brought our own first aid kits spread them out on the table to let everyone have a look and have a discussion on what is best for the various types of first aid kits.

Just like the original course the Brush up course is also a full on event with lots of action packed adventure and by the time the course is over you WILL be tired but you’ll also be really glad you came. As the Brush Up course is open not only to WMA certified people but also is open to anyone who is interested in WMA courses, so if you are interested, definitely take part in the next one!

野外救命救急コース

Wilderness First Aid Course

top_20120210161727.jpg

Last weekend for the first time in Kyushu, a Wilderness Medical Associates 2 day “Wilderness First Aid” course was held in Yasukogen. Amarok sponsored this event as last year I went to Nagano to take the 4 day course and was so impressed by how good it was and vowed to do what I can to help bring wilderness medicine to Kyushu.

1_20120210161811.jpg 2_20120210161817.jpg

Tak, Isamu, and Chizuru from Backcountry Rescue came all the way from Tokyo to teach the course. I first met them last year in Nagano and was completely blown away by their depth of knowledge and their ability to make a difficult subject easy to understand, even for me!

3_20120210161906.jpg 4_20120210161915.jpg

What makes these courses different from other First Aid courses is in the focus. The usual first aid course teaches you what to do to help someone until professional help arrives whether it be police, fire or ambulance, help is usually only a few minutes away. The focus of this course is to teach you what to do when help will take a long time to get to you or may not be able to come at all.

5_20120210161952.jpg 6_20120210161958.jpg

This course is not only for the outdoor professional, it is for anyone who wants to be better prepared when they go anywhere that may take professional help a long time to arrive whether it be in the backcountry or even in a disaster situation like we had here last year. The beauty of these courses is the combination of both classroom lectures and lots of practical sessions where we can get a chance to put what we learned in the classroom to actual use. These aren’t your regular easy scenarios either the student were told that if you’re supposed to see blood you’ll see blood, and that they did!

7_20120210162028.jpg 8_20120210162036.jpg

The course had a total of 10 students who were for all walks of life; we had doctors, dentists, pharmacists, outdoor guides, scout leaders, and avid hikers all eager to learn. After brief introductions we dove right in to the course learning about the Patient Assessment System, the major body systems and the problems those systems can encounter, as well as thermal induced emergencies and over the following day as well a ton of other things including the use of the Epipen to fight Anaphylaxis, all combined with practical sessions. It is one thing to feel you know a subject in your head but when you need to perform, it definitely puts your comprehension level to the test!

9_20120210162116.jpg 10_20120210162124.jpg

It was an intense 2 days of study but I’m positive everyone went home tired and completely satisfied! The next course will likely be held in the fall when my friends from Tokyo come back to help take us to the next level of Wilderness Medicine and make Kyushu a safer place to go play outside.

応急手当てコース

A day of First Aid Training

IMG_0004_20110825133755.jpg

On Wednesday we held our first EFR Course in the shop. It had been a while since I have taught the course and it felt really good to get into it again! During the course we got lots of hands on practice doing Primary and Secondary care and also using an AED.

IMG_0012_20110825133854.jpg IMG_0010.jpg

During primary care we practiced the ABCDS ‘s of first aid and also how to perform them while using an AED.  During the Secondary Care section we studied how to perform both an Injury and Illness Assessment as well as bandaging and splinting.

IMG_0013_20110825133925.jpg IMG_0014.jpg

This course can be done at anytime throughout the year and is open to anyone with or without experience so if you want to learn what to do in an emergency situation or want to practice skills you’ve learned in the past this is a great way to do it!

For those interested in the course email me at john@amarok-outdoors.com the course can be done in both English or Japanese.

A trip to Otari

Another great road trip

top_20110501110508.jpg

Hey everyone! Sorry for the long break between postings but I’ve been on a bit of a road trip. This time Mana and I travelled first to Nagano and then on to Saitama and Tokyo before heading back to Fukuoka. Today I’m only going to talk about the Nagano part of the trip and I’ll save the rest for next time.

1_20110501102929.jpg 2_20110501102939.jpg

We headed up once by car to Otari, Nagano, a small little village about a 40 minute drive from Hakuba and surrounded by the beautiful Northern Alps. Otari is home to the Nagano school of Outward Bound, an international outdoor education organization and sponsored an Advanced Wilderness First Aid course by Wilderness Medical Associates.

3_20110501103029.jpg 4_20110501103035.jpg

Wilderness Medical Associates is an internationally recognized leader in wilderness medicine and rescue training and I was really happy to find this course as not only was it taught in English but Dave Ramsey, the instructor is an EMT and a SAR Dog handler in the states so we had lots to chat about during the breaks.

8_20110501104113.jpg 9_20110501104120.jpg

The course was an intense 36 hours with a great bunch of about 20 participants from all around Japan. The mornings were filled with lectures and quizzes and the afternoons were full of practical scenarios out in the surrounding forests. The evenings were a combination of onsen and study, just a hint but if you have a choice study BEFORE you hit the onsen!

A final exam marked the end of the course and there were smiles all around when we found out that everyone passed, I always find it wonderfully amazing how a group of people who you never knew before can become such good friends in such a short time when you go through something like this. Happy Birthday Isamu!

After the course Mana and I headed out with the instructors for a nice day of hiking along the famous “Salt Road” a historical trail that brought supplies from the Japan sea inland.

It was a really great course that I recommend to anyone. I want to thank Outward Bound for sponsoring the course and for their wonderful hospitality and delicious meals. I will definitely be going again!

If you are interested in learning more about the course feel free to stop by the shop to chat about it. We’ll be in the shop today, and tomorrow. The 3rd we will be participating in a SAR Dog event in Aso but for those who want to go for a hike we’ll be heading to the mountains on the 4th for our first hike of May.

Stay tuned for part 2 of the road trip!
