A client is in the waiting room at the local clinic and begins to complain of crushing chest pain that is radiating down the left arm, dizziness, shortness of breath, and is diaphoretic. You suspect the client is having a heart attack. What can you administer as first aid to this client? What questions must you ask before they take the medication?
If you suspect the client is having a heart attack, you may administer a regular (325mg) aspirin or 2 baby (81 mg) aspirin to chew up before EMS arrives. You must ask if the client is allergic to aspirin, if they have had a stroke, or are on any blood thinner medication before administering aspirin.
You observe a victim on the ground with no obvious injuries. You have called for help, and as assessing pulse and airway on the victim. They have no pulse and no respiratory effort. You send someone for an AED and first aid kit. What is your next step?
You must start CPR. You will provide 30 compression and then using a head-tilt chin-lift you will provide 2 breaths. You will provide chest compressions at a rate of 100-120 a minute and continue at a ration of 30:2.
