St Johns Ambulance – First Aid – Dealing with an Unconscious Person

Today the 14th of September 2016 my class had a session where we learnt what to do of someone was unconscious. The easiest way to explain it is the DRS ABC.

Danger – Check Surroundings

Response – See if they can gear you (Squeeze next to neck)

Send for help – Call 000 (Ambulance)


Airways – Open mouth see if there is anything in there (Loose tooth, Vomit)

Breathing – Cheek next to there mouth – hand on chest to check if breathing

CPR – Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation

Defib – A machine that gives you a electric shock
