Transporting a victim is no easy task. You have to be careful not to injure them, but also ensure that they are comfortable and safe during the process. There are many different methods of transferring a victim, depending on their situation. This blog post will discuss the various ways you can transfer an injured or sick person from one place to another.
Only move a sick person when necessary!
When you are in a group, it is always best to have at least two people. One will take the victim’s right side and one will take their left. If possible, they should face each other so that if anything goes wrong during the process of transportation, there is someone available to help.
If you’re alone with an injured or ill person:
The most important thing to remember while transporting this kind of individual is not only safety but also comfortability for them as well. There are some cases where moving may be necessary and others where it could do more harm than good – which includes instances such as spinal injuries or any broken bones (where immobilizing the area would allow for healing).
When transporting someone who has difficulty breathing:
Ensure there is a comfortable sitting area for them before moving them from where they currently are. Try not to carry this type of victim over two flights of stairs without assistance! It can be very dangerous for them – especially if they have any other medical conditions like heart disease or diabetes (even cancer). They may need oxygen therapy as well while being transported, which would require extra support during the process by another person caring for them outside the home.
If you’re carrying a very heavy person:
It is important to take your time and consider the best way of getting them down to the ground. You should never carry this type of victim up stairs or anywhere else that would involve climbing! Make evacuation stretchers. Be sure there are no obstacles in your path before starting any kind of transport, especially if they can’t speak for themselves (due to injury).
When transporting someone who is unconscious:
First make sure their airway is clear by gently lifting their chin so that it’s tilted back slightly. If necessary, tilt their head sideways as well just enough so that vomit will not go into their throat and choke them.
Next put one arm under theirs at waist level – facing towards them with two fingers under their armpit. Be sure to keep your elbow close by the body for support while you hold them from behind with one arm and put your other hand on their back in a “half-hug” position.
Finish by sliding one leg around theirs, keeping it as close to the ground as possible without lifting either of you off the floor or stairs (you can use something like a table if necessary). Gently tilt forwards when picking up this kind of individual and lean backwards when putting down – avoiding any sudden movements that could cause harm!
