Scene Assessment Arriving at the Scene Assessment Emergency Services
Call the emergency service Give treatment Stay in your car, or Drive away so that you don’t block access. If you are the First person or one of the first to arrive at the scene of a RTC or Road Traffic Collision you may be required to give help, which of the following would you do? Instructor cue, use button No.3
In GB nobody is legally obliged to provide First Aid Other European Countries have differing rules with some making you legally responsible to provide First Aid You cannot be sued for providing First Aid to an individual (non responsive casualty) Individuals can refuse First Aid from you as a First Responder You still have HSE regulations you must adhere to Remember just by calling emergency services you might save a life. Do I have to help ?
Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 What Are Your Responsibilities? You have a duty of care to yourself and others Do no harm! Be safe, never risk your own safety Take limited risks If put in place, follow your employers guidelines. Is there a definitive Answer?
Danger Arriving at the Scene Your first instinct should always be to assess, use the abbreviations D.R.A.B. D Always make sure the scene is safe, there is no point in becoming another casualty!
Response Arriving at the Scene Your first instinct should always be to assess, use the abbreviations D.R.A.B. R • Check to see if the casualty, or casualties, are conscious
Airway Arriving at the Scene Your first instinct should always be to assess, use the abbreviations D.R.A.B. A • Airway maintenance is the most important skill in First Aid
Breathing Arriving at the Scene Your first instinct should always be to assess, use the abbreviations D.R.A.B. B • Check to see if the casualty is breathing, your next action largely depends on this.
SAFE Approach Some people prefer to us the SAFE approach instead of DRAB, what Is S.A.F.E Approach? Shout for help Assess the scene Free from danger Evaluate
Assessing the Scene Are there any fire risks, such as leaking petrol? Are there any vehicles displaying ADR labels? If so, are the containers leaking? How many people are involved? Are any children involved? They can easily be over looked Are you at risk of other vehicles colliding with you?
Identifying your location Smart phones – incorporate GPS mapping Road signage (junction numbers) Emergency telephones (roadside) Sat Nav.
999 puts you through to a regional call centre generally via an analogue switch 112 puts you through via a digital switch to a local call centre If you are on a mobile they can track you within 20 metres If your mobile is GPS enabled within a few feet If you or someone else is trapped 112 is better than 999 112 is the emergency telephone number that can be dialled free of charge from any phone in order to reach emergency services within the European Union Do you know about 112 ?
In the event of a collision, contact the emergency services immediately In the case of injuries always request the Ambulance Service In the event of casualties Police are automatically diverted to the scene Paramedics receive live updates on route to the accident location whilst you are talking to the operator. Emergency Services
Information Relay On calling 999 or 112, what information could you be asked for? Your name / vehicle details The location of the accident (try to be specific) Details of the casualty if you can Is there risk of fire Are there any chemicals (ADR) vehicles involved Is there risk from further collision – they relay information to the Highway Agency to close the motorway / road Try to give as much detail of the injuries sustained by the casualty and if anyone is trapped Do not PANIC – once you have issued your location a Ambulance is immediately allocated to the incident.
Accidents Involving Hazardous Goods If you can see leakage stay away from the vehicle, follow the drivers instruction at all times until the emergency services arrive Instruct people who can to move to a safe distance If you can see warning labels relay the information on them to the emergency services Do not use any form of ignition i.e. smoking this can cause a Bleve (a tanker explosion) Be mindful of vapour not just the liquid (there can be 1000 times more vapour than visible liquid) far more dangerous Try to stand upwind to reduce the affect of any vapour inhalation (cryogenic gases can freeze lungs in a fraction of a second) If the driver has been injured only approach the vehicle after assessing the risk. Remember self preservation at all times. DON’T BECOME A CASUALTY!!!!
Casualties Basic First Aid Needs C.A.B.C.D.E The Unconscious Casulaty Treatment of a Casualty CPR - Explained
First Aid Kit 10 things we can we expect to find in a First Aid Kit, can anybody name any? Wipes Dressings Tweezers Gloves Eye Wash Plasters Bandage Scissors Bandage
Triage What is Triage ? Translated from French, it means “to Sift” How do we apply it as First aiders ? Do the most for the most, do not be distracted by none life threatening conditions.
C.A.B.C.D.E What is C.A.B.C.D.E? What does it stand for? Catastrophic Bleeds Airway Breathing Circulation Deformity Extremities
Once you have determined some BASIC facts about the condition of the casualty or casualties, What do you do? Get help straight away ? Start to deal with injuries/problems you find? Treat what Kills first? Appropriate Action
What are they ? In simple terms a catastrophic bleed is when the flow of blood cannot be controlled by applying direct pressure to the injury These can be in the form of: Total or partial dismemberment Arterial damage Internal bleeding (crush – impact injury) Brain injury Apply as much pressure as you can until paramedics arrive on scene. Catastrophic Bleeds
Is the casualty’s chest moving? Place your cheek near their mouth Open their mouth to check for obstructions Remove dentures if they wear them Gently tilt their head back to open the airway Loosen tight fitting garments i.e. shirt collars and ties Can the casualty be moved safely? Airway (non responsive casualty)
If the casualty shows no sign of breathing Tilt the casualties head backwards Open their mouth checking for obstructions Pinch their nose firmly Make an air tight seal around their mouth with yours Breath into their airway checking after each breath the casualty chest is moving up and down Regulate your breathing dependant on the casualty i.e. reduce your pressure with infants. Breathing
Check the casualty for bleeding Assess whether immediate attention is required Apply direct pressure with a bandage If the bandage becomes soaked apply a new bandage on top of it and reapply pressure Use the 3 bandage principle (only discard the third bandage leaving the first two on) Constricted pupils and or grey skin colouration may indicate internal bleeding In the event of internal bleeding try to elevate the chest. Circulation
Deformity in basic terms means any body part that has been forced into a position outside of its normal restriction Broken legs Broken Arms / Wrists / Digits Trunk damage from crush or impact accidents Cranial damage Do not try to reposition limbs this action could cause further injury and risk internal bleeding. Deformity
Check for bleeding Injuries Risks from other objects Skin colouration Sweating Other signs of medical shock such as shaking, constricted pupils, conscious but non responsive. Extremities
What is the first priority when assessing the scene of an accident Casualties Contacting emergency services Your safety and others, or Telling your boss you are going to be late. Discussion stage before the answer is revealed…
