Responding to an Emergency
*Check to see if there is an emergency
*Checking a conscious ill/injured person: ask their name, what happened, any pain, allergies, medical conditions, when they last ate/drank, etc.
*Checking an unconsious person: tap their shoulder and loudly try to "awaken." If no response, check their A-B-C's (Airway-Breathing-Circulation). Check A-B-C's for child. Check A-B for adult.
*Calling for help is often the most important action
you can take to help
*Note: Care 2 min. for a drowning victim, then call 9-1-1
*If you choose to care for the person, always ask a conscious adult for permission to give care. If it's an unconscious adult, you have implied consent (permission to care).
*If it's a child/infant, you must first get the parent/guardian's consent if present; if no parent/guardian is present, you have implied consent.
*Don't move an ill/injured person because you can hurt them further, especially if there is a neck /back injury; the only exception to this rule is if there's a life-threatening condition present, then move.
Moving or Not Moving an ill/injured person
If a person's unconscious but breathing, and you need to leave a person alone, place them in recovery position if possible (keeps their airway open and clear if he/she vomits).
