Midlands Regional Hospital Portlaoise celebrated Emergency Medicine Day by promoting emergency medicine care in one of the local Primary schools- Ballylinan National School in Co. Laois Ireland. The aim of the day was to take the fear away from emergency medicine and introduce the children to first aid, minor injuries, the use of an ambulance, Asthma, and head and spinal injuries. Parents and teachers were also thought and introduction to hands only CPR. it was a great success and hopefully we can roll it out to others schools in the area.
