Life is unpredictable and our bodies are not always cooperative. Health problems and accidents often hit us suddenly and without warning. Such kind of emergencies can happen anywhere -- at a gym, on the street, at a shopping mall, in the office or at home. Nowadays people are scared to get involved in any kind of emergency. Those who want to take the initiative does not know how to deal with it. So, here in this blog post, I am going to share the top 5 things that you must remember during a medical emergency.
- Remain calm & check the condition of the victim :
The most important thing that one should keep in mind is to remain calm during such emergency situations. Either you are the victim or you are the savior if you panic then the situation will get worse. If you stay calm then you can make better decisions to deal with the situation. First and foremost, check the condition of the victim and ensure if he is alive. If you find the victim conscious then ask the possible details from him.
- Check out the closest hospital and dial the emergency number:
If you are new to the location then check out the closest hospital and it is best you dial their emergency number. Every hospital has their emergency contact available 24*7 which directly goes to the ambulance service. The aim should be to take the victim to the hospital as soon as possible.
- Check the airway and comfort the victim:
Make sure you try to comfort the victim while waiting for the ambulance or other help to reach. Check if the victim is breathing properly or not. Sometimes the crowd near the victim makes him feel more uncomfortable and cause unnecessary panic. So, keep a check on this and help keep the traffic moving as well.
- Do the first-aid before the ambulance arrives :
Sometimes first aid proves to be a lifesaver! So, it is always advisable to keep the first aid kit with you. See if the victim needs the first aid or not and check if you could handle it wisely or not. If not then ask for a help!
- Handover care to the emergency personnel :
Once the emergency service arrives, handover the care and provide every possible detail to them. It is also advisable to tell them about the events that took place during the emergency and the first aid that you provided to the victim. Assist them as much as you can.
