Operating as usual


Just going to leave this here 😂


They look the same but they're not!

Confusing right? So please read below to understand 😎

Chickenpox is NOT Smallpox.

We also need to know the difference between Human Smallpox (more serious) and Monkeypox (milder).

The disease that is having an outbreak here in the UK 🇬🇧 as well as in several other countries is MONKEYPOX.

🦠 Chickenpox, is an infectious and highly contagious disease caused by the Varicella-Zoster virus, from the Herpetoviridae family. It is quite common in children under 15 years old.

🦠 Human Smallpox is by Orthopoxvirus variolae and causes a very serious disease and eradicated thanks to vaccination resulting from a major WHO campaign.

🦠 Monkeypox, like smallpox, is a member of the orthopoxvirus group. Experts point out that it is much milder and less contagious than the human version of the disease.

BUT… we are still waiting for more information to know if there has been any change in the virus to try to understand the reason for an unusual outbreak.

Until then… let's take care of ourselves. No desperation, no exaggeration.

Masks once again being our ally. Hygiene and education on the topic is crucial.

🚨 Please don't kill or mistreat the monkeys!!! Despite the name, monkeys are not reservoirs of the smallpox virus. Although the reservoir is unknown, the main candidates are small rodents. Monkeys suffer from the disease just like us! Killing them won't help! 🚨

Thank you

Priscila Currie - Paramedic


Saving lives matter! Learning from 999 Paramedics matter!


What do u reckon?


What's going on here? 😰

1. Is this proper approach to BLS ?
2. Or is this assault ?
3. Is this awake CPR ?

CPR-induced consciousness (CPRIC) was described in Lewinter’s 1989 case report out of Henry Ford Hospital; the authors were more concerned with competing models of chest compression physiology and venoarterial carbon dioxide gradients but report that “forward blood flow produced was sufficient to maintain consciousness.”  CPRIC was more explicitly addressed in 1994 by Quinn and his colleagues at the University of Ottawa who were studying an active compression-decompression device but conclude with a question -->“Is it inhumane to do CPR without sedation or analgesia"? 

2% of cardiac arrest survivors in the subtly-named AWARE study described visual awareness during cardiac arrest. 

Most CPRIC authors recommend intra-arrest sedation with midazolam or ketamine; one group proposes a CPRIC sedation protocol.

NOTE: in regards to the video, I highly doubt this is conscious CPR... just bad bystander primary survey and assessment skills.

Working with our lovely colleagues from the London Fire Brigade! We are all so glad for your help during the pandemic! We also have police officers helping us drive the ambulances!

🚑 👮‍♂️ 👨‍🚒 🔥 ❤️


Choking!!!! Would you know what to do? 🤔 We use a choking simulator vest so our students get to practice many times!

1st - Ask the person to cough as hard as they possibly can!

2nd - Support the casualty and ask them to lean forwards and then perform 5 strong back slaps in between the shoulder blades. Looking after each one to see if they are still choking.

3rd - Perform abdominal thrusts by standing behind the casualty, lean them forwards, place one fist in the stomach and the other cupping that fists then pull really fast and hard until the person is able to breath agias!

4th- if unsuccessful the casualty will go in to cardiac arrest so be prepared to start CPR!


Yay!!!! Another successful course!!!!! Thank you guys!!!!


Cough cough!

Anaphylaxis is a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction to a trigger such as an allergy.

Symptoms of anaphylaxis

Anaphylaxis usually develops suddenly and gets worse very quickly.

The symptoms include:

🚨feeling lightheaded or faint
🚨breathing difficulties – such as
🚨fast, shallow breathing
🚨a fast heartbeat
🚨clammy skin
🚨confusion and anxiety
🚨collapsing or losing consciousness

There may also be other allergy symptoms, including an itchy, raised rash (hives); feeling or being sick; swelling (angioedema) or stomach pain. If someone has symptoms of anaphylaxis, you should:

🔥Use an adrenaline auto-injector if the person has one – but make sure you know how to use it correctly first.

🔥 Call 999 for an ambulance immediately (even if they start to feel better) – mention that you think the person has anaphylaxis.

🔥 Remove any trigger if possible – for example, carefully remove any stinger stuck in the skin.

🔥 Lie the person down flat – unless they're unconscious, pregnant or having breathing difficulties.

🔥 Give another injection after 5 to 15 minutes if the symptoms do not improve and a second auto-injector is available.

🔥 If you're having an anaphylactic reaction, you can follow these steps yourself if you feel able to.

#008 - Priscilla Currie - First Aid Responder

So I was interviewed by Lewis Bloor for his awesome podcast Game Changers! We talk about my Paramedic life in London and some interesting topics! Unmissable!!!! Let me know your thoughts! https://youtu.be/MH_nMdEGNMk

Priscilla discusses life on the front line as a first responder paramedic. She discussed life & death as part of her day to day working routine. Priscilla al...


Who is in the mood to learn how to save lives and earn a beautiful accredited certificate??? Oh yeah!!! Our next course is on the 7th of March but we also teach privately! Contact us now! @ Yay First Aid


Why is it that most people when they find out I am a 999 Paramedic they ask “what’s the worse thing you have seen and dealt with???” The truth is if I tell you....you probably won’t sleep tonight. And nope this picture is not mine and yes I have seen horrible things that not even horror movies thought about it! I don’t particularly want to recall that and share it with you? So rather than asking this rather insensitive question how about “whats your happiest Paramedic memory? You will end up hearing some amazing life saving true story 🥰 🇬🇧


There is no blood or gore in this video don’t worry! I am a biker so I am not here to bad mouth bikers... I am here to raise awareness of stupidity! Stunts like this should NEVER be performed in public roads! I don’t know if the rider survived this... I hope nobody else got hurt, he could have killed an innocent person! Speeds are for track days only! Stunts like this should only be attempted in a proper location with safety measures in place! If you know bikers share this with them! Awareness save lives!

🚑 🚨 999 what’s your emergency??? “Ermmm ....I woke up with an identity crises like I’ve never experienced before...I feel like I am a dog, please help” I have to say absolutely one of my favourite patients! Hahaha


"If your child starts choking, swallows medication or sustains a minor burn should you provide first aid, call triple 999, or rush them straight to the emergency room? A new poll shows that an alarming number of parents aren't sure how to respond to these various scenarios, unintentionally placing their kids at risk."
"When young children experience urgent medical situations, parents have to make decisions about whether to administer first aid at home, call for advice or seek emergency care," says Gary Freed, who co-directed the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital survey. "Our report suggests that some parents may be using the A&E for common situations that could be handled at home."
So Yay First Aid asks you...
What kind of parent are you?
Do you freak out or are you trained in quality First Aid and can save your children??? @ London, United Kingdom
