Remote First Aid

Remote Area First Aid is concerned with casualty management for a protracted period of 100-0065_IMGtime in ‘remote’ situations where:

  1. arrival of definitive medical assistance will be greater than 30 minutes but typically less than 24 hours*
  2. complications and casualty management are life dependent issues
  3. reporting and monitoring is a critical aspect.

Operations of any kind in an area isolated by:

  • Distance
  • Transport
  • Communication or
  • Access due to its geological features

are defined as REMOTE and require an increased level of RISK MANAGEMENT, planning and emergency protocols.

* If medical assistance is not expected for greater than 24 hours, then the area is deemed ‘wilderness’ .
