Establish and follow the personal safety and disease transmission guidelines to maintain proper safety precautions = Gloves & Mask

Determine Mechanism of Injury (MOI)

initial assessment
Initial Assessment

Perform an initial assessment. This is a quick initial assessment for life threatening problems in the body’s respiratory, circulatory, and nervous systems. Determine number of patients and level of responsiveness. Remember the steps by thinking ABCDE.


A = airway management – blocked airway can lead to death, check for response, if necessary open the airway.

B = breathing – look listen and feel for air moving, lack of air can lead to cardiac arrest.

C = circulation – signs of circulation (coughing, movement, normal breathing), assess for bleeding, and then assess for control.

D = disability – is the person conscious, assess level, reactive pain, check movement.

E = environment and exposure – protect from the elements (heat, cold, rain).

focused exam history
Focused Exam & History

Once you have done the initial assessment and identified life threatening problems, you can then perform a secondary assessment to help determine what is wrong and the need for immediate attention. Head to toe exam (look, ask, feel). Vital Signs most vital sign is level of consciousness. Simple History.

questions to ask
Questions to ask

When did it begin?

What brought it on?

What does it feel like?
