Self-Care

Post by Ryan » Fri May 25, 2012 1:04 pm

The real questions to ask yourself - Are you in immediate danger? Yes. Then take out the threat. No. Then work on your extraction.

Self-preservation will kick in and at that point you need to understand the threats to your life and the objective actions you need to take to get yourself to safety.

Assess the priorities, start with the threats then move on to the wound, how bad is it? Apply pressure with a field dressing or whatever is available. If able to or if appropriate then call for assistance or back-up, if you cannot speak there are other ways to communicate like tapping the radio, banging on the ground, etc.
