Question and answer
identify sources of information that provide procedures for treating those affected by poisonous substances
If you think someone has swallowed poison and they appear to be unconscious, try to wake them and encourage them to spit out any pills. [ Do not put your hand into their mouth and do not try to make them sick. [ If you are waiting for medical help to arrive, lie the person on their side with a cushion behind their back and their upper leg pulled slightly forward, so they do not fall on their
face or roll backwards. Wipe any vomit away from their mouth and keep their head pointing down to allow any vomit to escape without them breathing it in or swallowing it. Do not give them anything to eat or drink. Poisonous fumes If you think someone has inhaled poisonous fumes, assess the situation first and do not put yourself in danger. Call for help and, if it is safe to do so, remove the person from the contaminated area. Before entering the area, take two or three deep breaths and hold your breath until you come out. As soon as you are out of the affected area, call 999. ] ]

6.1 describe how to safely manage an incident involving electricity
Weegy: Electricity can kill or severely injure people and cause damage to property. Every year many accidents at work involving electric shock or burns are reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). [ Most of the fatal incidents are caused by contact with overhead power lines. Even non-fatal shocks can cause severe and permanent injury. For example, shocks from faulty equipment may lead to falls from ladders, scaffolds or other work platforms. Those using or working with electricity may not be the only ones at risk ? poor electrical installations and faulty electrical appliances can lead to fire, which may also cause death or injury to others. Most of these accidents can be avoided by careful planning and straightforward precautions.Your health and safety risk assessment should take into account the risks associated with electricity. It will help you decide what action you need to take to use and maintain your electrical installations and equipment and also how often maintenance is needed. See HSE s website for further guidance ( uk/risk). The risk of injury from electricity is strongly linked to where and how it is used. The risks are greatest in harsh conditions, for example: n in wet surroundings ? unsuitable equipment can easily become live and can make its surroundings live; n outdoors ? equipment may not only become wet but may be at greater risk of damage; and n in cramped spaces with a lot of earthed metalwork such as inside a tank ? if an electrical fault developed it could be very difficult to avoid a shock. ] User: 6.2 describe first aid treatments for electric shock Incidents Weegy: First aid for electric shocks should be: 1. Separate the Person From Current's Source 2. Do CPR, if Necessary 3. Check for Other Injuries 4. Wait for 911 to Arrive 5. Follow Up (More)

describe how to recognise the severity of burns and scalds to an infant and a child and respond accordingly
Weegy: describe how to recognise the severity of burns and scalds to an infant and a child and respond accordinglyBurns occur when the skin is exposed to heat or chemicals, for example fire, sunburn, friction, acid, bleach or garden chemicals. [ [ Scalds happen when the skin is exposed to hot fluids, for example boiling water, steam or hot fat. Burns and scalds are usually divided into three categories depending on how much damage they cause to the skin and underlying tissues. First-degree or minor burns are superficial and affect only the outer layer of the skin, making it red and sore. Second-degree or partial thickness burns extend below the surface of the skin. The skin looks raw and blisters form. Third-degree or full thickness burns damage the entire layer of the skin and underlying tissues to affect nerves, muscle and fat. The skin looks pale, waxy and charred. First-degree burns can be treated at home and usually heal in seven to ten days. Second- and third-degree burns are much more serious and require medical attention as there is a risk of infection and shock (dangerously low drop in blood pressure) developing. All burns and scalds cause intense pain at the site of the injury. First-degree burns can be recognised by slight swelling and redness. In second-degree burns, the skin looks red raw and blisters will appear. Black, charred or waxy skin indicates a third-degree burn and that the burn is serious. Serious burns can cause shock. Symptoms of shock include shortness of breath, dizziness, a rapid pulse and, in severe cases, unconsciousness or even death. A scald in the mouth or throat, may cause swelling and make breathing difficult. Sadly many burns and scalds leave children badly scarred for life and often requiring plastic surgery. Recovery may be a slow and painful process.
