5.3. Advanced training

The aim of advanced training is specialization rather than comprehensiveness. It will be of particular importance in relation to the following types of situations (though specific programmes will normally deal only with some of these, in accordance with needs, and their duration will vary considerably):

- cardiopulmonary resuscitation;
- poisoning (intoxication);
- injuries caused by electric current;
- severe burns;
- severe eye injuries;
- skin injuries;
- contamination by radioactive material (internal and skin or wound contamination);
- heat and cold stress.
