Just gpt another few questions here.
Has anyone done a first-aid course and if so what are people taught about dealing with asthma and panic attacks? Normally at my work I speak to the first-aiders to explain how i like my attacks to be dealt with, what i find helps and what works for me and what the signs i need hospital are (although i always tell them if they are in any doubt about what i'm saying to call for help etc.) When i was off my work sick a few people were taught first-aid (it was needed) so two of them came down to deal with me the other day and the first thing they asked me to do was sit on the floor - i've never been asked to do that before but to be honest it did make me feel a bit more comfortable and worked - any idea how that waS? After that they just asked what i wanted to do etc but i think its because they know this happens a lot etc - but thinking to myself i am curious to know what people are taught about it etc.
Also thinking, its going to be difficult when i start my new job as i shall need to explain my asthma/panic situation to first-aiders etc there - eek!
