FA LEVEL 1 INTRODUCTION TO FIRST AID IN FOOTBALL
The FA Level 1 Introduction to First Aid in Football provides you with the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to attend a conscious or unconscious player, ensuring that appropriate care is given until the emergency medical services arrive and takeover, or until an alternative healthcare professional(s) assumes responsibility. It is a practical guide to dealing with the essential components of saving a life, both in training and matches.
FA Concussion guidelines
Footballers who sustain a suspected concussion, either during training or in a game, should immediately be removed from the pitch and not allowed to return until the appropriate treatment has been administered.
Defibrillators for your club
The FA and BHF wanted to get external defibrillators (AED) into clubs so that if someone were to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest, the people around them would have the equipment available that could potentially help save their life. A bystander giving immediate Cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation to someone who has had a cardiac arrest can double a person's chances of survival in some cases.
