What can a critical situation with Action-cards® look like?

Peter had been a youth coach at his new boxing club for only 2 months when the accident that should not happen, happened.

Nadal, who had just turned 15, was one of the club’s rising stars and had just been appointed to the club’s elite team.

Training took place on a Wednesday night when suddenly, Nadal fell over in the ring while sparring with Jonas.

In the beginning, Peter thought Nadal was just “out for a moment” and that he would quickly get back on his feet. But after calling him out loud and shaking him, Nadal still hadn’t woken up, and Peter had a bad feeling about it.

Luckily, the club had just bought Action-cards® for confident first aid; they had been placed on the wall in the training room so they were easy to find.

Peter called his assistant coach, Karen, and had her bring the Action-cards® and find the one that best suited the situation. It was the “cardiopulmonary resuscitation card”.

Karen guided Peter and Jonas through the step-by-step points on the card. It made it a lot easier for all of them, she felt. There were many things they could have had doubts about, but this way, they just had to follow the “manual”.

It was Peter who gave a cardiac massage, while Jonas gave inhalations—more than ten minutes passed before the ambulance arrived. Karen had gotten two of the others, who were also at training that night, to guide the ambulance rescue team to the training facilities.

It later emerged that Nadal had suffered a brain hemorrhage. Fortunately, the quick and effective actions helped to save Nadal’s life with no lasting damage.
Together with Karen, Peter, and Jonas, Action-cards® saved Nadal’s life.

DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS?

With a first aid course, it sometimes can be difficult to remember all the details. With Action-cards®, you don’t have to remember all the details – we provide first aid information at your fingertips when you need it most!

The great advantage of Action-cards® is that they work wherever you are. With physical cards, you don’t have to be dependent on internet access, or logging in on a phone, app, tablet, or computer to get the help you need. They are also robust, and can withstand water, wind, weather, and hard shocks. 

Many people today use Action-cards®. We have provided Action-cards® to many sports facilities, schools, nurseries, shops, restaurants, factories, etc. For many years, pilots, the armed forces, the police, and the pre-hospital system have used Action-cards®. They do this precisely because they know that it can be difficult to remember important details in critical situations.

Yes, all the knowledge that you would normally have with a first aid instructor you now have access to all the time with your Action-cards®. Therefore, you can easily bring out your Action-cards® and train when it fits you best. Even 30 minutes of practice a few times a year can make a dramatic difference. That way, you can continuously keep your first aid routine sharp without it costing you more than the time you choose to spend on it.

We believe that you should do what you’re most comfortable with. We know many people find it difficult to remember what to do in emergency situations. Action-cards® help people who have to act in such situations. Pilots, the armed forces, the police, and those in the pre-hospital service use them, because they know how difficult it can be to remember important details in critical situations.

There is a QR code on each Action-card® to make your accident registration as easy as possible. In less than 1 minute, you can register an accident by scanning the QR code on the corresponding card – or register if you have trained or read an Action-card®. This can be valuable documentation for you or your organization in case of a lawsuit.

If you scan this QR code, you’ll immediately register what happened, where it happened, the time it happened, and what treatments were given, without you having done anything other than scan the QR code.

When you’ve scanned the QR code, you can add additional comments and pictures of the accident’s location, along with anything else that’s relevant documentation.

A good accident record is absolutely essential to be able to find the most cost-effective solutions for more safety in your company.
