  • 1
  • Upon discovering the patient, the first thing I am going to do is check the scence.
  • I will tap them on the shoulder and say, "Hi, I'm Christina! Are you okay?"
  • E. 2389
  • Once I have determined the area is suitable, I will begin to assess the patient's state.
  • If there is no response, I will begin to asses their ABC's
  • A - AIRWAYIs there anything blocking the patient's airway?I will open the airway by tilting the head back and gently pulling the chin forward. NOTE: If I suspected a spinal/neck injury I would not do this, as it may further compromise the patient.
  • E. 2389
  • B - BREATHINGHow is the patient's breathing?To determine this, I will turn my head sideways towards the patient's head. I will look for rise & fall of the chest, and listen/feel for breathing in my ear. I will identify how many breaths are taken in 10 seconds, and keep in mind 2 breaths is ideal.
  • C- CIRCULATIONDoes the patient have adequate circlulation?To asses circuation, I will locate the carotid or radial artery, and determine if there is a pulse present. If a pulse is located, I may also decide if it is stong, weak, irregular, etc.
