Seeing your Loved one in a Medical emergency can be horrifying... Feeling helpless is worse

Did you know that 80% of Nigerian adults would pour water on an unconscious patient in order to wake him up? This is totally wrong… 

Did you know that 86% of Nigerian adults would give water to someone that is choking while eating in order to stop the choking? This is ridiculous… 

Did you also know that over 70% of adults in Nigeria would put spoon or stick in the mouth of someone convulsing in order to save him from dying? This is Laughable…

Finally, did you know that over 65% of the adults in Nigeria would rub palm oil or engine oil on someone who has suffered from burns? This is amazing…

Almost everyday in Nigeria, people slump at homes, schools, offices, markets etc and die simply because the people around do not have the necessary Emergency medical care / First Aid skills required to resuscitate and keep them alive till they get to the nearest hospitals. And unfortunately in Nigeria, there is almost no Paramedic care for medical emergencies.

Studies have shown that quite a number of patients with medical emergencies brought to the hospitals die within the first 24 hrs from the time of the accident (3.6% dead on arrival) and most of the deaths are due to late presentation or due to poor First Aid care they received before Medical help arrives.

Based on all these findings, Golden Hour Medics was formed in order to help reduce the number of deaths as a result of inadequate First Aid care people receive immediately after an accident from the people around. Our First Aid training will enable you stay prepared in the event of any common medical emergency. Our team is made up of well trained and experienced Medical Doctors, Nurses, and Paramedics in Emergency Medical Services. We are a member of the Nigerian Red Cross Society with foreign affiliations.

Ignorance is one major reason Nigerians die carelessly from avoidable deaths. Well, not surprising when most people take pictures on witnessing an emergency rather than apply themselves to save a life.

Medical emergencies can happen to anybody, anywhere, anytime……
Get Trained…..Stay prepared…..Save A LIFE…..
