Why are the ABC's most important to first aid?
first aid is important because it helps the casualty be safe until medical help arrives First Aid is important because it: 1. Saves lives. 2. Prevents further injury/illness.… 3. Promotes full recovery. SOURCE: Professional First Aider.
First Aid is important in a kitchen for a number of reasons: . A kitchen is loaded with dangerous equipment - knives, slicers, ovens, grills, fryers, etc. . A kitchen can h…ave unsafe conditions - heat, slippery floors, limited space, etc. . A kitchen is usually a very active area of limited with people working in a very focused manner at high speed. . So a kitchen could have injuries of varying degrees, including: slips and falls, cuts and bruises, dismemberment, burns, and even heat stroke or heat exhaustion.
In case of fracture the 1st rule of thumb is to take caution "not to cause any more damage to the fractured bone" . hence it must be checked that the Broken part should not… be moved or allowed to move no matter what. when bones get fractured it implicit a severe pain. so the patient should be given pain killers like morphine. Try to get to the nearest Hospital where proper treatment can be done. As this wound is from the inside of the Body, one will hardly be able to give much help to the patient.
A - Airway - the patients airway must be clear and open. An unconscious patient lying supine will have an obstructed airway because the tongue will fall onto the posterior wal…l and prevent airflow. . B - Breathing - make sure the patient is breathing before attending to any injuries. . C - Circulation - a patient that has a pulse is not necessarily alive, there may be an airway obstruction, be careful!
If a contamination risk exists and you need to provide first aid to a victim what is most important?
be sure the victim has been decontaminated
I believe the ABCs you have in mind are the common acronyms of first aid standing for: Airway Breathing and Circulation (sometimes known as Compression) These are kn…own as the priority action plan. Without airway there can be no breathing. Each thing in the acronym must be present in order for first aid to be effective. Let us take an example. A patient is lying on the ground. you can hear a slight gurgling and gasping noise coming from the mouth. You can instantly say that the airway is obstructed. Upon examination, you find a marble lodged in the trachea. You dislodge it. The patient can start breathing again. The aforementioned scenario indicates that without an open airway, breathing is not possible. Each variable relies on the other to keep it functioning. Knowing these basic acronyms are the most important part of first aid. It is like a chain effect.
im not sure but mabey washing hands
The most important thing in a first aid kit is the roll of medical bandages.
No it is not; the most important thing to do in an emergency is activate the EMS (emergency medical system) typically by calling 911 (or the local emergency number).
Technically, CPR is in the category of First Aid. But if I were to choose between the two, I would say First Aid. CPR is only used on people who seems to have no circulation (…breathing, movements, and coughing) while First Aids cover other things like cuts, burns, and other injuries.
True. But, if they don't need imidiate help then call 911 first. Or Give CPR while shouting for help.
In case of an small wound or injury,medical care will be taken from the first aid.
Airway - the airway of the patient is clear and nothing is blocking it. Including the tongue. Breathing - the patient has respirations, you can see the chest rising up and …down. Circulation - verification that the patient has a pulse. The pulse can be checked by placing an index finger on the patient's wrist below the base of the thumb, palm side up. According to the AHA 2010 protocol, the initial assessment of a an unconscious patient goes according to the acronym CAB, rather than ABC. Each of the letters remaining with the original meaning as described above.
The first aid box or kit is important as it contained vital emergency equipment to use in an emergency. A box ensures it is kept in one place. The kit should be placed in a …well known place. All family members or work colleagues should known its location. This ensures prompt response can be obtained if needed.
In First Aid
The first aid provider must manage his own safety at all times. - Unsafe heroes end up dead or another person to deal with. Don't do what you don't know how to do. As seen… on TV does not work in real life! If a trained EMS provider is on site, do as he/she instructs.
In First Aid
Paramedic is the most important person in a first aid because he knows that how to deals with the patient in serious condition.
