Sample text

Never transport a person: ■ When the trip may aggravate the injury or illness or cause worsening of the condition. ■ When the person has or may develop a life-threatening condition. ■ If you are unsure of the nature of the injury or illness. If you decide it is safe to transport the person, ask someone to come with you to keep the person comfortable. Also, be sure you know the quickest route to the nearest medical facility capable of handling emergency care. Pay close attention to the injured or ill person and watch for any changes in his or her condition.

Deciding to Act Once you recognize that an emergency has occurred, you must decide how to help and what to do. There are many ways you can help in an emergency, but in order to help, you must act. Overcoming Barriers to Act Sometimes people simply do not recognize that an emergency has occurred. At other times, people recognize an emergency but are reluctant to act. People have various reasons for hesitating or not acting. These reasons, called barriers to act, are based on feelings that are personal and real.

Your first aid training will help you to make this decision. The most important step you can take when giving care to a person who is unconscious or has some other life-threatening condition is to call for emergency medical help. With a life-threatening condition, the survival of a person often depends on both emergency medical help and the care you can give. You will have to use your best judgment—based on the situation, your assessment of the injured or ill person, information gained from this course and other training you may have received— to make the decision to call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number.
