The community of healthcare providers (doctors, nurses, etc.) focuses more and more on increasing awareness about the importance and usefulness of first aid when dealing with accidents and critical health situations, especially in minors. That is why first aid training for teachers is considered to be the utmost importance, which is also leant by the recommendation to provide these contents from the schools and to start even at a young age.
