Basic Life Support (BLS)

This level of BLS must be mastered by all entry personnel

(Step 1: Stop the situation)
- Is the area secured? Never start treating a patient before the entire building is safe.
- Is the patient conscious? Talk to the patient and tell him how he can help himself.

 

(Step 2: After the area is secure start ABC)
- Stop only life threatening bleeding (direct pressure / tourniquet)

 

AIRWAY
Look:
Look for and repair blocked airways. Look to see if the chest raises and lowers.
Feel:
Feel for respiration against hand or cheek.
Listen:
Listen for breathing for 10 sec. (Hissing, gurgling, piping sound)
C-spine check:
Immobilise if it is safe.

No breathing and no conscious = Cardiac Arrest. Start CPR if the situations allows.

 

BREATHING
Look: Look at the chest for any damages, front and back
Feel: Feel the ribs for fractures or other damages
Listen: Listen for sound that could appear from damage to the lungs.
Percussion: Check the lungs by tapping, to hear if they are filed with blood.

If any damage to the lungs, apply an air tight dressing that can function as a valve.
Remember to be careful if the person might have spin damage.

 

CIRCULATION
Quick Check: For bleedings and wounds. Apply dressing (pack to bone)
Check Pulse: A primitive way to decide the blood pressure is done by feeling for the pulse on the wrist (radials) if you feel it, the pulse, the blood pressure is ok.
Infusion: If you cannot feel the pulse in the wrists the blood pressure is to low. The patient needs liquid infusion ASAP.
Keep warm: Isolate the patient.

 

Check A-B-C again. Continue to do so until a medic takes over.
