• Use chin lift/head tilt
Look.-listen-feel for breathing
Attempt to Ventilate
Ventilate Every 5 seconds
• Establish responsiveness
Check pulse Recovery position
10
Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation
• Should be trained to perform this procedure
• If done improperly, could harm victim
• Courses available everywhere

Tourniquet
Absolute last resort in
controlling bleeding
Remember - Life or limb
Once a tourniquet is
applied, it is not to be
removed , only by a
doctor
18
Shock
Shock affects all major
functions of the body
loss of blood flow to the
tissues and organs
Shock must be treated in
all accident cases
19
Treatment for Shock
•Lie victim down if possible
•Face is pale-raise the tail
•Face is red-raise the head
•Loosen tight clothing
•Keep victim warm and dry
•Do not give anything by mouth
•No stimulants
There are three types of heat
emergencies you may be
required to treat.
1.Heat Exhaustion
2.Heat Stroke
3.Heat Cramps
Heat exhaustion is less
dangerous than heat stroke.
It is caused by fluid loss which
in turn causes blood flow to
decrease in vital organs,
resulting in a form of shock.
Signs and Symptoms
Cool, Pale, and Moist Skin
Heavy Sweating
Dilated Pupils
Headache
Nausea
Vomiting
Body temperature will be near normal.
Get the victim out of the heat and into a
cool place.
Place in the shock position, lying on the
back with feet raised.
Remove or loosen clothing.
Cool by fanning or applying cold packs or
wet towels or sheets. If conscious, give
water to drink every 15 minutes.
WHILE HEAT EXHAUSTION IS
NOT A LIFE- THREATENING
EMERGENCY LIKE HEAT
STROKE, IT CAN PROGRESS
TO HEAT STROKE IF LEFT
UNTREATED!
Heat cramps are muscular pain and
spasms due to heavy exertion. They
usually involve the abdominal
muscles or legs. It is generally
thought this condition is caused by
loss of water and salt through
sweating.
Get victim to a cool place.
If they can tolerate it, give one-half
glass of water every 15 minutes.
Heat cramps can usually be avoided
by increasing fluid intake when active
in hot weather.
Heat Stroke is the most serious type
of heat emergency.
It is LIFE-THREATENING and
requires
IMMEDIATE and
AGGRESSIVE treatment!
Heat stroke occurs when the body's heat
regulating mechanism fails. The body
temperature rises so high that brain damage --
and death-- may result unless the body is
cooled quickly.
Signs and Symptoms
The victim's skin is HOT, RED
and usually DRY.
Pupils are very small.
The body temperature is VERY
HIGH,
sometimes as high as 105
degrees.
Remember, Heat Stroke is a life-
threatening emergency and
requires prompt action!
Summon professional help.
Get the victim into a cool place.
Do not give victim anything by mouth. Treat for
shock.
COOL THE VICTIM AS QUICKLY AS
POSSIBLE IN ANY MANNER POSSIBLE!
Place the victiminto a bathtub of cool water, wrap in
wet sheets, place in an air conditioned room.
32
Diabetic emergencies
Insulin Shock (Hypoglycemia)
Result of insufficient sugar- Fast onset
•Cold clammy skin, pale, rapid respiration's and pulse,
incoherent
•Treat by giving sugar bases products
Diabetic coma (Ketoacidosis)
Too much sugar or insufficient insulin- Slow onset
•Warm, dry skin, slow respirations, smell of rotten
fruit on breath
•True medical emergency, activate EMS system
immediately
Find out if victim has past diabetic history

39
Severe Burns and Scalds
Treatment:
Cool the burn area with water for 10 to 20 minutes.
Lay the casualty down and make him as comfortable as possible,
protecting burn area from ground contact.
Gently remove any rings, watches, belts or constricting clothing
from the injured area before it begins to swell.
Cover the injured area loosely with sterile unmedicated dressing or
similar non fluffy material and bandage.
Don't remove anything that is sticking to the burn.
Don't apply lotions, ointments, butter or fat to the injury.
Don't break blisters or otherwise interfere with the injured area.
Don't over-cool the patient and cause shivering.
If breathing and heartbeat stop, begin resuscitation immediately,
If casualty is unconscious but breathing normally, place in the
recovery position.
Treat for shock.
Send for medical attention and prep for transport.
40
Minor Burns and Scalds
Treatment:
Place the injured part under slowly running water,
or soak in cold water for 10 minutes or as long as
pain persists.
Gently remove any rings, watches, belts, and
shoes from the injured area before it starts to
swell.
Dress with clean, sterile, non fluffy material.
Don't use adhesive dressings.
Don't apply lotions, ointments or fat to burn/
scald.
Don't break blisters or otherwise interfere.
If in doubt, seek medical aid.
41
Chemical Burns
Treatment:
Flood the area with slowly running water for
at least ten minutes. (or proper neutralizing
agent)
Gently remove contaminated clothing while
flooding injured area, taking care not to
contaminate yourself.
Continue treatment for SEVERE BURNS
Remove to hospital.
42
Fractures & Dislocations
Must treat for bleeding first
Do not push
bones back
into place
Don’t straighten break
Treat the way you found it
43
IF A DISLOCATION IS SUSPECTED...
1. Apply a splint to the joint to keep it from moving.
2. Try to keep joint elevated to slow bloodflow to the area
3. A doctor should be contacted to have the bone set back
into its socket.
The most common dislocations occur in the shoulder, elbow,
finger, or thumb.
Dislocations
LOOK FOR THESE SIGNS:
1. swelling
2. deformed look
3. pain and tenderness
4. possible discoloration of the affected area
44
Splints
Must be a straight line break Can be formed to shape of
deformity
Be careful of temperature
change
45
PROPER CARE:
1. While waiting on help to arrive, keep the victim lying down in the
recovery position
2. Control any bleeding, and be sure that he is breathing properly.
3. Do not give the victim any liquids to drink.
4. If the victim becomes unconscious for any amount of time, keep track of
this information so that you can report it when medical help arrives.
Head Injuries
A sharp blow to the head could result in a concussion, a jostling of the
brain inside its protective, bony covering. A more serious head injury
may result in contusions, or bruises to the brain.
OTHER SYMPTOMS TO LOOK FOR IF YOU SUSPECT A VICTIM MAY HAVE
A BRAIN INJURY:
1. clear or reddish fluid draining from the ears, nose, or mouth
2. difficulty in speaking
3. headache
4. unequal size of pupils
5. pale skin
6. paralysis of an arm or leg (opposite side of the injury) or face (same
side of the injury)
46
Neck & Spinal Injuries
CARE AND TREATMENT
ABC
extreme care in initial
examination — minimal
movement
urgent ambulance transport
apply cervical collar
treat for shock
treat any other injuries
maintain body heat
if movement required, 'log roll'
and use assistants
always maintain casualty's head
in line with the shoulders

  • 2. 2 Securing the scene • 1. Electrical hazards • 2. Chemical hazards • 3. Noxious & Toxic gases • 4. Ground hazards • 5. Fire • 6. Unstable equipment Before performing any First Aid, Check for:
  • 3. 3 Chain of Survival Early Access”911” Early CPR or First Aid You Early Defibrillation EMS on scene Early Advanced Care Hospital In order for a person to survive: Pay attention to: HISTORY; what happened; from the casualty or bystanders SYMPTOMS; what only the casualty can tell you SIGNS; what you can see for yourself
  • 4. 4 Universal Precautions for Airborne & Bloodborn Pathogens HIV & Hepatitis Tuberculosis Gloves & Respiratory Barrier devise are a must to prevent transmission of diseases
  • 5. 5 DURING TREATMENT avoid coughing, breathing, or speaking over the wound avoid contact with body fluids use a face shield or mask with one-way-valve when doing active resuscitation use only clean bandages and dressings avoid treating more than one casualty without washing hands and changing gloves AFTER TREATMENT clean up both casualty and yourself clean up the immediate vicinity dispose of dressings, bandages, gloves and soiled clothing correctly wash hands with soap and water
  • 6. 6 Fundamentals of First Aid Activate EMS System “911” • 1. ABC (airway-breathing-circulation) • 2. Control bleeding • 3. Treat for Shock(medical emergencies) • 4. Open wounds & Burns • 5. Fractures & Dislocations • 6. Transportation
  • 7. 7 ABC’s • Causes of Respiratory/Cardiac Arrest Electrical Drowning Toxic - Noxious gases Suffocation Heart Attack Trauma Drugs Allergic reactions
  • 8. 8 Reaction Time • If CPR/Artificial respiration is administered • Chance of brain damage 0 to 4 minutes - 4 to 6 minutes - 6 to 10 minutes- 10 minutes + - Recovery rate of victim if has artificial respiration done immediately Oxygenated blood flow must get to brain
  • 9. 9 A-B-C’s • Use chin lift/head tilt Look.-listen-feel for breathing Attempt to Ventilate Ventilate Every 5 seconds • Establish responsiveness Check pulse Recovery position
  • 10. 10 Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation • Should be trained to perform this procedure • If done improperly, could harm victim • Courses available everywhere • New in Late 2006 – 30 Compressions to 2 Breaths – For Everyone!
  • 13. 13 Types of Bleeding •Veins •Capillary Spurting Steady flow Oozing Artery Internal Injuries
  • 15. 15 Control of Bleeding Direct Pressure Elevation Cold Applications Pressure bandage
  • 16. 16 Pressure Points Where the artery passes over a bone close to the skin Temporal Facial Carotid Sub-clavian Brachial Radial Ulnar Femoral Popliteal Pedal
  • 17. 17 Tourniquet Absolute last resort in controlling bleeding Remember - Life or limb Once a tourniquet is applied, it is not to be removed , only by a doctor
  • 18. 18 Shock Shock affects all major functions of the body loss of blood flow to the tissues and organs Shock must be treated in all accident cases
  • 19. 19 Treatment for Shock •Lie victim down if possible •Face is pale-raise the tail •Face is red-raise the head •Loosen tight clothing •Keep victim warm and dry •Do not give anything by mouth •No stimulants
  • 20.
  • 21. There are three types of heat emergencies you may be required to treat. 1.Heat Exhaustion 2.Heat Stroke 3.Heat Cramps
  • 22. Heat exhaustion is less dangerous than heat stroke. It is caused by fluid loss which in turn causes blood flow to decrease in vital organs, resulting in a form of shock.
  • 23. Signs and Symptoms Cool, Pale, and Moist Skin Heavy Sweating Dilated Pupils Headache Nausea Vomiting Body temperature will be near normal.
  • 24. Get the victim out of the heat and into a cool place. Place in the shock position, lying on the back with feet raised. Remove or loosen clothing. Cool by fanning or applying cold packs or wet towels or sheets. If conscious, give water to drink every 15 minutes.
  • 25. WHILE HEAT EXHAUSTION IS NOT A LIFE- THREATENING EMERGENCY LIKE HEAT STROKE, IT CAN PROGRESS TO HEAT STROKE IF LEFT UNTREATED!
  • 26. Heat cramps are muscular pain and spasms due to heavy exertion. They usually involve the abdominal muscles or legs. It is generally thought this condition is caused by loss of water and salt through sweating.
  • 27. Get victim to a cool place. If they can tolerate it, give one-half glass of water every 15 minutes. Heat cramps can usually be avoided by increasing fluid intake when active in hot weather.
  • 28. Heat Stroke is the most serious type of heat emergency. It is LIFE-THREATENING and requires IMMEDIATE and AGGRESSIVE treatment! Heat stroke occurs when the body's heat regulating mechanism fails. The body temperature rises so high that brain damage -- and death-- may result unless the body is cooled quickly.
  • 29. Signs and Symptoms The victim's skin is HOT, RED and usually DRY. Pupils are very small. The body temperature is VERY HIGH, sometimes as high as 105 degrees.
  • 30. Remember, Heat Stroke is a life- threatening emergency and requires prompt action! Summon professional help. Get the victim into a cool place. Do not give victim anything by mouth. Treat for shock.
  • 31. COOL THE VICTIM AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE IN ANY MANNER POSSIBLE! Place the victiminto a bathtub of cool water, wrap in wet sheets, place in an air conditioned room.
  • 32. 32 Diabetic emergencies Insulin Shock (Hypoglycemia) Result of insufficient sugar- Fast onset •Cold clammy skin, pale, rapid respiration's and pulse, incoherent •Treat by giving sugar bases products Diabetic coma (Ketoacidosis) Too much sugar or insufficient insulin- Slow onset •Warm, dry skin, slow respirations, smell of rotten fruit on breath •True medical emergency, activate EMS system immediately Find out if victim has past diabetic history
  • 33. 33 Snake & Spider bites Rattlesnake Copperhead Black Widow Brown Recluse Limit activity Constricting bandage above Cold application Advanced medical attention
  • 38. 38 Burns Cool applicationDon’t break blisters Dry sterile dressing, treat for shock RAPID TRANSPORT!!!
  • 39. 39 Severe Burns and Scalds Treatment: Cool the burn area with water for 10 to 20 minutes. Lay the casualty down and make him as comfortable as possible, protecting burn area from ground contact. Gently remove any rings, watches, belts or constricting clothing from the injured area before it begins to swell. Cover the injured area loosely with sterile unmedicated dressing or similar non fluffy material and bandage. Don't remove anything that is sticking to the burn. Don't apply lotions, ointments, butter or fat to the injury. Don't break blisters or otherwise interfere with the injured area. Don't over-cool the patient and cause shivering. If breathing and heartbeat stop, begin resuscitation immediately, If casualty is unconscious but breathing normally, place in the recovery position. Treat for shock. Send for medical attention and prep for transport.
  • 40. 40 Minor Burns and Scalds Treatment: Place the injured part under slowly running water, or soak in cold water for 10 minutes or as long as pain persists. Gently remove any rings, watches, belts, and shoes from the injured area before it starts to swell. Dress with clean, sterile, non fluffy material. Don't use adhesive dressings. Don't apply lotions, ointments or fat to burn/ scald. Don't break blisters or otherwise interfere. If in doubt, seek medical aid.
  • 41. 41 Chemical Burns Treatment: Flood the area with slowly running water for at least ten minutes. (or proper neutralizing agent) Gently remove contaminated clothing while flooding injured area, taking care not to contaminate yourself. Continue treatment for SEVERE BURNS Remove to hospital.
  • 42. 42 Fractures & Dislocations Must treat for bleeding first Do not push bones back into place Don’t straighten break Treat the way you found it
  • 43. 43 IF A DISLOCATION IS SUSPECTED... 1. Apply a splint to the joint to keep it from moving. 2. Try to keep joint elevated to slow bloodflow to the area 3. A doctor should be contacted to have the bone set back into its socket. The most common dislocations occur in the shoulder, elbow, finger, or thumb. Dislocations LOOK FOR THESE SIGNS: 1. swelling 2. deformed look 3. pain and tenderness 4. possible discoloration of the affected area
  • 44. 44 Splints Must be a straight line break Can be formed to shape of deformity Be careful of temperature change
  • 45. 45 PROPER CARE: 1. While waiting on help to arrive, keep the victim lying down in the recovery position 2. Control any bleeding, and be sure that he is breathing properly. 3. Do not give the victim any liquids to drink. 4. If the victim becomes unconscious for any amount of time, keep track of this information so that you can report it when medical help arrives. Head Injuries A sharp blow to the head could result in a concussion, a jostling of the brain inside its protective, bony covering. A more serious head injury may result in contusions, or bruises to the brain. OTHER SYMPTOMS TO LOOK FOR IF YOU SUSPECT A VICTIM MAY HAVE A BRAIN INJURY: 1. clear or reddish fluid draining from the ears, nose, or mouth 2. difficulty in speaking 3. headache 4. unequal size of pupils 5. pale skin 6. paralysis of an arm or leg (opposite side of the injury) or face (same side of the injury)
  • 46. 46 Neck & Spinal Injuries CARE AND TREATMENT ABC extreme care in initial examination — minimal movement urgent ambulance transport apply cervical collar treat for shock treat any other injuries maintain body heat if movement required, 'log roll' and use assistants always maintain casualty's head in line with the shoulders
