Medical Alert Bracelets

Medical alert bracelets/necklace

People suffering with known medical conditions such as allergies usually wear a medical alert bracelet/necklace so that in case of an emergency, a first aider can look for the bracelet/necklace and gain important information about the casualty.

The secondary survey (head-to-toes) is a more thorough examination conducted by the first aider and is carried out for casualties with potential injuries. If the casualty is unconscious and breathing adequately, they are left in the recovery position, and the casualty’s signs of life are checked regularly throughout the secondary survey.
