First aid - CPR


This entry goes with the previous one, on Circulation, Airway, and Breathing. Chest compressions only.

(Tip: how fast to do the compressions? To the beat of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive", or "Another One Bites the Dust". Seriously.)

Watch the first aid video on CPR. (This one isn't as in depth as the others.)

First aid - CAB (circulation, airway, breathing)


You've tourniqueted the bleed or splinted the fracture, and checked the victim's pulse and blood pressure. You also need to make sure he's breathing, especially if he's unconscious.

Note: Several months after we held this seminar, the American Heart Association revised the order in which to do these steps from ABC to CAB. The rest of the information in the video still applies. (Note that the speaker references the upcoming change; the AHA just hadn't made it yet.)

First aid - pulse, blood pressure


The next installment in our series of first aid videos is on pulse and blood pressure - how to tell whether somebody's doing all right, or whether they're crashing or in the process of doing so, and what you can do to try and mitigate the latter.

Previous installments:
Part 1: introduction, vital areas
Part 2: bleeding
Part 3: fractures
