All about first aid
Make sure the area around you is safe for yourself, others and your patients.
Check for response-ask name-squeeze shoulders.

- make comfortable
- check for injuries

Call Triple Zero (000) for an ambulance or ask another person to make the call.

- clear airway with fingers
Open airway by tilting head with the chin.
Check for breathing-look, listen and feel.
Not normal breathing
