First Aid Annual Review


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Welcome to the first aid annual review course.  All of you have had first-aid one or more times as a condition of employment with Dungarvin.  This course will be best used to remind you of all the things you already know to help those in your care in an emergency situation. Note: This is not an American Red Cross certified course, just a Dungarvin based review to meet our conditions of employment.There are several reasons or barriers that people won't act in an emergency.  They include:
    • Being afraid of doing something wrong
    • Not being sure of what the emergency is
    • Figuring that someone else will take action
    • Concern one may get a disease
    • Not being sure of when to call 911/EMS
    • Worry that one might be sued.
    In regards to being sued one must remember the rules of THE GOOD SAMARITAN LAW.
    • You must ask permission.
    • Move a person only if they are in danger of being hurt.
    • Always call 911
    • Continue to give care until someone else arrives to assist or take over.
    • If a person says they don't want care, you DO NOT GIVE CARE but still call 911
    • If a person goes unconscious, even if they have previously denied care when conscious, you may give care as it is presumed you would.
    There are only four reasons one would stop giving care in any emergent situation.
    • Someone starts breathing or some other sign notates they are ok.
    • Another person takes over for you.
    • You can't continue because you’re exhausted.
    • The environment becomes unsafe for you, them or both of you.
    The American Red Cross reminds you to Check/Call/Care
    • Check the scene to be sure it is safe
    • Call the EMS system (911)
    • Care for the individual.
    Remember to ask yourself the following questions when you find someone in need of care.
    • Is there danger?
    • What happened?
    • What is wrong?
    • Can anyone else help?
    When you check a conscious person ask them
    • What Happened?
    • What is their pain or discomfort?
    • Do they have any allergies?
    • Any medical conditions or medications?
    Be sure to check them from head to toe.

    If someone is choking please follow these steps:
    • Ask if you can assist.
    • If they agree, go behind them with your arm covering the front of the body so they don't fall.
    • Keep your legs slightly bent to assure balance.
    • Do 5 back blows between their shoulder blades with your palm.
    • If that doesn't stop the choking do abdominal thrusts.
    • Stand behind them, locate the navel with two fingers, ball into a fist, grab the fist with your other hand and do upward thrusts to the abdomen.
