What can a aide do to prevent bedsores
Weegy: Consider investing in a special mattress if you are caring for a person confined to a bed on a full-time basis. Check with the doctor for a recommendation on whether you should opt for an air, water, foam or some other type mattress. [ There are also cushions you can purchase specifically designed to prop a person in different positions. 3 Be sure to avoid pressure sores by not positioning the body on a bony area. You can make good use of pillows or special cushions to position the body at an angle or float areas between the legs. Keep the body straight, and avoid certain areas being aggravated by joints. 4 Incorporate as much activity as possible for bedridden people, the extent of which is dependent on what the person is capable of. Exercise keeps the blood flowing and maintains muscle. Additionally, keeping active rouses the appetite. All of this leads to healthy skin, and healthy skin is less prone to bedsores. 5 Inspect the skin all over the body for sore areas on a daily basis. If you find some, treat the area to prevent it from getting worse. Maintaining healthy skin means bathing it gently and applying a little lotion to dry areas. If the person can check the skin with a mirror, have him do it regularly, especially areas that feel uncomfortable. If the bedridden person uses diapers, change diapers regularly to avoid moisture irritating the skin. ] (More)

Before trying first aid measures for a patient who is choking on food or some other object stuck in the airway what should the home health aide find out
Weegy: Where choking is severe, the person will not be able to speak, cry, cough or breathe. [ Without help, they will eventually become unconscious. To help an adult or child over one year old who is choking severely: Stand slightly behind the person to one side. If you’re right-handed, stand to the left. If you’re left-handed, stand to the right. Support their chest with one hand. Lean the person forward so that the object blocking their airway will come out of their mouth, rather than going further down. Give up to five sharp blows between the person’s shoulder blades with the heel of your hand. (The heel is between the palm of your hand and your wrist.) Stop after each blow to check if the blockage has cleared. If not, give up to five abdominal thrusts (see below). Stop after each thrust to check if the blockage has cleared. ] (More)
