Class Summary - Today we reviewed by taking a quiz on Check Call Care (as a reminder on steps to take in an emergency) and the ages of victim care according to American Red Cross (adult is over 12 and child is 1-12 and infant is under 1). We then watched the videos on the steps to helping a conscious victim. We always check the scene first. Adults should be checked head to toe and children should be checked toe to head. To check a person who is conscious and has no immediate life-threatening conditions Check the Scene (to be sure it is safe to help. Interview the person and bystanders using SAMPLE. Check the victim from head to toe. React accordingly (if you don't know what to do to help, call 911). We practiced interviewing a conscious victim. We used an acronym of SAMPLE (Symptoms, Allergies, Medications, Pertinent Medical History, Last Food or Drink, Events Leading up to the Incident. We started the check for the unconscious adult but will review it next class period.
