Glenmark Philippines Inc. Hosted the First Aid Training on Wound Care Management

Glenmark Philippines, Inc., an affiliate of a leading research-based pharmaceutical company Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, conduct a “First Aid for Kids Training” through its brand on wound care, Foskina Ointment. Held at SMX Convention Center, SM Aura, Taguig City, February 24, 2019 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

It's an afternoon of fun and learning to know the basic training that is vital for saving lives especially for my family. I almost forgot how to do the CPR, good thing I got to attend this event and refresh my mind how to do it again properly with the step by step procedure. In addition to CPR training, Choking and First Aid training for a wound are additional learnings I discover with this event.

Dr. Daniel Luchangco MD begin the training for basic application of CPR. He demonstrates the proper and step by step procedure when conducting CPR in times of emergency. We got the chance also to ask some few questions to clarify our inquiries and doubts.

Parents and Child attendees experience how to execute the proper CPR by doing it on the dummy human and babies.

Kids in this age range are usually prone to cuts, scrapes, and burns, acquired either at home, school or other areas like malls, parks, and playgrounds where they are most physically active. Thus, it is of utmost importance that parents and school facilitators are knowledgeable when it comes to applying first aid as the “first responders” on proper wound care management and in other cases of emergencies.

Among the highlights of the training, cover wound care and burn management, allergies and bites, and CPR and choking.  The lectures and hands-on demos will be led by the team behind Early Intervention Management, Dr. Dan Luchangco from the Emergency Department of the Makati Medical Center and Dr. Joy Sto. Domingo, Chairman of the VRP Emergency Medicine Consultants. 

Glenmark aims to increase awareness about the value of knowing the application of basic first aid, particularly among parents and school facilitators of pre-school and kindergarteners.

Media partners for the event include Manila Bulletin (Digital), Channel Hue, Experience Travel and Living magazine and Moms & Kids Magazine.
