Class Summary - Today we went over the CPR tests. Then we introduced the first aid chapter by discussing sudden illness specifically shock. Shock happens when the body tries to conserve blood flow but in turn reduces blood flow to main organs of the body. Someone who experiences shock may appear irritable, cold, in and out of consciousness, confused, fatigued. Shock can be a life threatening emergency. If you suspect someone is suffering from shock, call 911, lower the person to the ground and raise their legs (as long as there is no head, neck, or back injury). DO NOT give them anything to eat or drink even though they may complain that they are thirsty.
Homework - None
