SSI React Right Course
Reach Right is the SSI equal to PADI EFR (Emergency First Response). Also known as RR, the react right course deals with out of water emergencies. It is designed to train first aid providers to keep control during an emergency situation until medical professional arrive. In other words, your React Right training is not a “for divers only” course. You do not need any prior diving experience to enroll in this training.
In your course, your education will be divided into 5 main sections. These 5 sections are assessment, stabilisation, first aid technique, O2 provider and AED. In React Right, all the skills we teach are beneficial in your daily life, as much as during your diving activity.
Upon completing this course, you are no longer be a head in the crowd in an emergency. You will now remain calm, and being able to offer help. However, do remember that this course IS NOT a replacement for a full length Emergency Medical Instruction course for medical professionals. Hence, you should not be providing help that is beyond your training and knowledge.
What do you do and where do we teach you
Your course breaks down into 5 separate sections – Assessment, Stabilisation, CPR, O2 Provider and AED management.
React Right – Assessment
In the assessment section, you will learn how to assess the victim and the surrounding before providing help. You will learn about the 3R’s (recognize, respond and restrictions) when performing initial survey of an emergency. Our instructor will create scenarios for you to show potential danger while helping a “victim”.
React Right – Stabilization
While assessing the victim, bear in mind that vital organs will start to die within minutes without oxygen. Hence, a haste stabilizing maneuver with the ABC (airway, breathing, circulation) procedure is critical. You will learn how to provide CPR when necessary. There are also different procedures when you are dealing with victim of different age. You have special considerations to make whilst tending CPR to a minor. These will lead to your third section of React Right which is…
React Right – First Aid Technique
This section is a hands-on practical section where you will deal with non-lethal injuries. You will learn about the general diving-related and non-diving related injuries and how to respond appropriately.
React Right – O2 Provider
As you learned in your Open Water course, most of the pressure related injuries (DCI) are dealt with by providing Oxygen as an immediate response. In this section, you will acknowledge different types of oxygen tank valves and mask types. Our instructor will also create a scenario so you can understand the right way to provide pure oxygen depending on the circumstance.
React Right – AED
…stands for Automated External Defibrillator. Ever wonder what do the emergency box in the shopping mall with the word AED written on it actually contains? An AED is a device to reestablish effective heart rhythm of a victim during incidents like a cardiac arrest or drowned victim. Now after your AED training, you will not only know, but to be able to actually use it to save someone in dire need.
