Here at Jigsaw Medical Services, we provide tailored sports first aid training courses adapted to your environment for sports coaches, referees and health care professionals inside the sports industry.
A perfect example of the importance of Sports First Aid Training is when high profile football player Fabrice Muamba suffered a Cardiac Arrest during the first half of a FA Cup quarter-final match between Bolton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur. If it wasn’t for the rapid response of the medical team and first aid, he would not have survived.
“There is no such thing as luck when it comes to a cardiac arrest – it’s about having the right people at the right time. I wouldn’t be here now if it wasn’t for the treatment I had been given after I collapsed.” – Fabrice Muamba
