Gregorific took a first aid CPR class last weekend. The scenario looked like this: torso of dummy on mat. No legs. No arms. No facial features. No chance I’m gonna let that stop me from saving his dumbassy.
-Check scene for danger.-
Hey Dummy! Dummy! Are you okay? Are you okay?
You! Call 911!
I’m trained in first aid and CPR – may I have your permission to help you until professionals arrive?
I take that as implied consent!
Put on rubber gloves. Take mouth barrier out. (When do I have these on hand?… Always be prepared.)
Care for victim. Bleeding? Apply pressure and clean bandages.
Breathing? Make comfortable and wait.
Not breathing? You don’t say.
30 chest compressions, 2 breaths
Help has arrived! Paramedics take over.
Dummy, you owe me your life.
I passed first aid and CPR!
