Due to the unprecedented impact COVID-19 is having on all of us, we have been left with no option but to suspend training until further notice.
As a medical training provider, we have a responsibility to do our part in reducing the risk of spreading the virus. This means reducing the number of customers we come into contact with. - We will honour all bookings that are already made and inform everyone individually with new dates once we re-open as normal. - We would like to offer huge thanks to all our customers, who’s understanding has been fantastic through this difficult time for us all. - While everyone works through their own difficult situations, we are implementing the following to help where we can: - A downloadable, PDF copy of the Sports Trauma Management manual for those who are already booked on to suspended courses. (This will be e-mailed automatically to everyone who has booked on to any of our outstanding courses). - We will be working to release CPD and online training across our social media platforms while face to face training is suspended. - We will be reducing prices for our full online courses via www.lubasonline.com - If you need to contact us, we will be available via the following: - Email: email@example.com Twitter: @lubasmedical Facebook: /lubasmedical - We will respond to posts/direct messages/messenger as soon as possible. - We will continue to update our customers through social media and again, would like to thank you all for the continuing support you show us.

How to treat shock after an accident.
The term “shock” is often misunderstood. It can conjure up images of someone dealing with a traumatic experience being “cured” or comforted with a cup of sugary tea! But shock in medical terms relates to a physiological and potentially life-threatening condition.
To help you understand what type of shock we are talking about, here are some pointers for understanding, recognising & managing shock.
What is Shock?
Shock is the reduction of blood & oxygen to the organs and tissues of the body due to a problem with circulation. If untreated, shock can be fatal.
What causes Shock?
Shock is usually caused by a drop in blood pressure. This reduces the amount of oxygen to your vital organs and tissues.
The drop in blood pressure can be commonly caused by high volume blood loss (hypovolaemic shock), problems with the heart (cardiogenic shock) and severe allergic reactions (anaphylactic shock) among other things
What are the signs & symptoms of shock?
Someone suffering from shock will likely show the following symptoms:
What is the treatment for shock?
If you suspect someone is suffering from shock, you should do the
999 and describe the symptoms to the emergency services
to control/stop any bleeding that may be occurring
the casualty down and raise their legs – this encourages blood to flow to the
the casualty warm, comfortable and as calm as possible
monitoring their breathing until Paramedics arrive.
Shock is always brought on by an underlying problem or
condition. Recognising the symptoms and acting quickly to get further help is
vitally important if you suspect shock.
We provide more in-depth information and training regarding shock on our First Aid for Sport & Exercise (FASE 1) course (link to FASE 1). We also offer further online content at www.lubasonline.com
With recent advances in technology, there've been various debates about online vs face-to-face training.
Here's a few points that'll help you get the most out of learning online, & why you don't have to choose between the 2
1. Training in the palm of your hand
The greatest benefit of learning online is quick accessibility on the go.
We all consume huge volumes of (mostly useless!) information through our phones. Medical training via your mobile gives you access to information, updates & skills that improve your knowledge.
You can advance your CPD, remind yourself of a specific skill & test your knowledge right in the palm of your hand.
2. Personalised training
An online learning library offers you the chance to pick & choose the medical training & CPD that suits you. You can home in on the specific areas & levels that fit your needs. This creates a personalised training package just for you.
3. Up Skill
Online training offers you the chance to increase your skills & knowledge very quickly. Certain skills require physical practice & face-to-face learning. But there are elements of theory & video examples/scenarios you can use to refresh your knowledge. You can “up skill” your previous learning to prepare you for your next course.
4. Best of both worlds
We recommend using online medical training to enhance your practical learning (blended learning).
Nothing gets you ready for the real thing like real-life, scenario based practical training. Learning online shouldn’t replace your face-to-face learning. It should give you support before, during and certainly after your practical courses.
See online training as your interactive manual or guide that you can refer to & test yourself with.
You can benefit greatly from using online learning for medical training and first aid. But combining it with practical training will really enhance your skills & confidence.
We’ve recently updated the format to our First Aid for Sport & Exercise 1 course. To find out more about the new format www.lubasmedical.com
