FOPS E Course blog
A nice mix of theory and practical today commencing with blood pressure. We started by looking at the theory behind blood pressure and what the numbers mean and how we can interpret them.
We then spent a period taking BP as a practical exercise both with automated machines and with cuffs and BP meters using stethoscopes. Nice to see my BP is in an acceptable range expected of someone approaching 60.
We then spent some time doing a practical “medic” style survey of a casualty, – much more detailed that at First Aid at Work level.
The day ended with a discussion on Diabetes.
More homework tonight on the use of more drugs …..
