On Saturday 30th April, Lubas Medical provided Paramedic cover for the Junior athletics competition hosted at Leckwith Athletics Stadium in Cardiff. It was a closely fought day with Cardiff Archers pipping Cardiff Amateur Athletics Club by just 34 points.

During the day there were a number of incidents which required medical assistance; from muscular injuries to trips and falls.

Luckily none of the incidents required an ambulance or a trip to A&E as appropriate first aid was provided at the venue. This ranged from applying general R.I.C.E principles to player assessment and head injury/concussion advice.

It was another interesting and varied event that we were proud to provide support for.

First Aid for Sport andExercise (level 1 and 2) or FASE1 & FASE2, are Lubas Medical’s sport-specific first aid courses which teach individuals the skills and knowledge required to deal with injuries in sport.

FASE Level one is a six-hour course which is relevant to parents, personal trainers or games teachers etc. who have a role in covering sport. While FASE Level two is a 2-day course which is aimed at non-medical professionals who work in sport. It goes into more detail and teaches you how to assist doctors or physiotherapists in a sporting environment.

The Lubas Medical FASE course can be a valuable qualification for anyone who wishes to cover sport safely.

Our next FASE Level one course is in Cardiff on the 5TH June. With some sporting seasons coming to a close, and others just starting, there is no better time to attend a FASE course and learn how to manage sports competitors safely!
