Chapter 3: Safety Precautions

It is important to always check the scene and ensure your safety first. Remember that dialing 9-1-1 is one of the most important steps you can take to save another’s life.

  1. Your safety is first, so leave the scene if you are at risk.
  2. While helping the victim, protect yourself from transmission of possible diseases. **This is extremely relevant now with the current Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) that is actively impacting many people.
    • Use preventive breathing barriers / personal protective equipment (PPE) when available. Cloth masks should be used for protection during COVID-19 when other PPE is not available or there is a shortage in your area.
    • Try to cover your own cuts, sores, wounds, and any skin conditions with a bandage before responding.

Capítulo 1 Introducción

*Este curso ahora incluye la Guía provisional de la AHA y la ECC de 2020 para el soporte vital básico (RCP) en relación con la reanimación de pacientes con COVID-19, sospechosos o confirmados. Busque estas actualizaciones provisionales a lo largo del curso.

El paro cardíaco súbito (SCA) es una de las principales causas de muerte entre los adultos en los Estados Unidos. La reanimación cardiopulmonar (RCP) aumenta drásticamente las posibilidades de supervivencia de una víctima que sufre de PCS.

La RCP es una combinación de compresiones torácicas y respiraciones, y proporciona un flujo sanguíneo crítico y oxígeno al corazón y al cerebro.

Si la RCP se inicia dentro de los tres a cinco (3-5) minutos del colapso, aumenta la posibilidad de supervivencia de la víctima y reduce la posibilidad de daño permanente.

Este curso sigue las pautas más recientes y actualizadas de 2020 Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) y AHA, y ha sido diseñado para ayudarlo a adquirir las habilidades que necesitará para responder de manera efectiva en una situación de emergencia.
