b) Don’t become a victim in trying to help another victim. You’d be more useful to him or her when you’re intact.

c) Before caring for someone with an injury, protect yourself. Don’t touch anybody’s fluids. If you would help and the chances of touching one would occur, be properly gloved and covered

d) Before attending to this person, ask yourself: are they any other threats? If yes, eliminate.

e) If the person is talking normally, the airway is open. If they don’t talk, put your face next to theirs and look, listen, and feel for breathing on your face for 15 seconds

f) If none of these or no breathing sounds or the chest doesn’t rise and fall, the person may not be breathing.

g) If the person is breathing, their heart is beating. Don’t waste time checking pulse esp if you don’t know how to.

Use that time to look if there’s any bleeding and check if the person’s hands feel cold. If yes, they may likely go into shock.

h)
