In Case of an Preparing for an Emergency
Though the possible trigger factors may be known for some patients, in some cases, one never knows when a medical emergency occurs. When you are in doubt, be sure to assess the patient based on their breathing. If they appear to be taking gasping shallow breaths, then immediate care must be given. A medical emergency kit with all the drugs needed for each and every medical emergency is available. Be sure to educate yourself on which drug is to be taken and its administration. In the case of external bleeds, pressure must be applied on the wounds and basic sterile dressing must be done. Keep in mind that even though it is an emergency, a calm and free environment is advised.
