Determining the risk of carious Every second, there are people in the world who need help and their lives may depend on the actions of those around them.

That is why it is important that an increasing number of people know how to react to life-threatening situations, which can sometimes unfortunately lead to death.

Both in and out of the dental surgery, emergency situations can occur and people need to know the methods and attitudes that are appropriate at such times.

Also, by attending courses organized by various institutions, endorsed by the Red Cross, they can learn practices that at some point in their lives can help someone in an extreme situation.

When you observe a person who has fallen to the ground, it is possible that they are unconscious.

The first thing to do is to ask them if they are okay, if they are feeling well, just to check their state of consciousness.

If she does not respond, call the single emergency number 112 and check her breathing and pulse.

You should also make sure that the person does not have an oral cavity full of food that may make breathing difficult.

Depending on how responsive the patient is, we can do the following:

If the victim is conscious, has a pulse and is breathing, it is necessary to stay nearby and communicate with him/her.

Also, try to place the victim in a lateral position to help remove foreign bodies that may be in the digestive or respiratory tracts.

If the victim is not breathing but has a pulse, we are dealing with a respiratory emergency and start with two ventilation maneuvers (mouth-to-mouth).

These are effective if the victim’s chest rises, which is a sign that air is reaching the airway as a result of the ventilation maneuvers.

On the other hand, if the chest does not rise following ventilations, the contents of the mouth cavity are checked for any foreign object that could be obstructing the airway.

Then two more ventilations are performed to check if the chest rises.

The most serious situation is a victim with no pulse and no breathing.

Most often the affected person collapses to the ground. It is advisable to check whether the victim has any other injuries after falling to the ground, so that they can be dressed and the bleeding stopped.

The emergency number 112 should be called in any of these situations, even when the patient is conscious, to establish exactly why the victim fell to the ground. Often, these sudden collapses hide other pathologies.

The CPR technique consists of 30 chest compressions followed by 2 mouth-to-mouth ventilations). The rate of movement is 100 compressions per minute.

It is important to act calmly and confidently and to acquire the correct techniques, practice can be done in courses organized frequently.
