This course material available in video format. Click to view.
Most every healthcare worker assigned to an area of patient care will become exposed to an emergency situation. Emergencies can occur both within and outside of a controlled hospital or clinic setting. In the community an emergency can happen in a public place or even at one’s own home or neighborhood. Being the first person on the scene at a medical emergency may require that the healthcare worker respond to individual(s) suffering from a stroke, heart attack, seizure, poisoning incidence or other critical condition. Being able to recognize common medical emergencies and to deliver the proper first aid or initial response in these situations are important skills that could be lifesaving.
