First aid course for the driver's license in Mainz or Frankfurt am Main

Preparing for an emergency.

An inattentive moment is all it takes - accidents on the road happen quickly and require fast, professional emergency measures that can save lives. For this reason, every learner driver is required to attend a first aid course. We provide detailed information on this topic below.

Definition/content of the first aid course for the driver's license

Every first aid course consists of a theoretical and a practical part. At the beginning there is an introduction to the basic theoretical knowledge of the anatomy of the body. This also includes special knowledge about first aid for children, which differs from that for adults. Practical examples are used to illustrate the content taught.

Life-saving emergency measures are the focus of the course. The basic principle is that first aiders should not put themselves or their children in danger. Immediate measures include securing the scene of the accident, rescuing people from the danger zone and calling the emergency doctor on 112. The five W's must be clarified during this phone call: Where did the accident happen? What has happened? How many people are injured and need help? What is the nature of the injuries? What is the extent of any fires? Wait for feedback. After the immediate measures, first aid in the form of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, hemostasis, shock control and stable lateral position must be administered.
