Office Emergencies #1
What should you do if someone around you
suddenly falls down and becomes unconscious?
The first thing that you should do is to
call 911, then make sure that the area around the victim is safe from hazardous
objects that could harm you if you try to help them.
Once you have determined that the scene is safe you should check to see
if the victim is breathing. The way
you check is as follows: Turn the
victim so that they are face up, Put your ear about an inch away from their
mouth and look towards their chest, stay in this position for about 15 seconds,
if they are breathing then you should stay in that monitoring position until
more advanced medical personnel take over, if the victim is not breathing you
should attempt to give the victim breaths.
This will be explained next month.
