First Aid/What needs to be done?

Feel free to move things around as tasks get completed

Fleshing-outEdit

Don't exist yetEdit

AlsoEdit

  1. Invite more people to contribute
  2. Expand First Aid/Appendix B: Behind the Scenes
  3. Use these templates to spruce up the book
  4. Use development stages to indicate which modules need expansion
  5. Please keep Sources up-to-date. If you use a source, put it there.
  6. All pages for first aid (i.e. not CPR or "concept" pages, but actual first aid content pages) need a common organization system:
    • Introduction: (what it is, how it happens, what's going on physiologically)
    • Recognition: Signs & Symptoms (including notes about how to differentiate it from other things with similar S&S)
    • Treatment: (including treatment priorities and don'ts)

Call EMS first, or open airway and check breathing, then call EMS?
Talk:First Aid/Emergency First Aid & Initial Action Steps#AAA vs GO DR SHAVPU
Which, if any mnemonic should be used? Perhaps using AAA as a structural organization and GODRSHAVPU as a mnemonic would be best?
This was done Mike.lifeguard | talk 23:39, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Talk:First Aid/B for Breathing#ILCOR/AHA only, or include regional standards?
What does ILCOR actually say about when to call EMS, AED's role in BLS and the number of initial rescue breaths?

see above Mike.lifeguard | talk 23:39, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Talk:First Aid/Extended Assessment#Keep the Article?
Whether to keep the extended assessment module
Kept Mike.lifeguard | talk 23:39, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
Talk:First Aid#Victims, patients, casualties
We reached consensus on this one, and I already made the changes.
We're using victim for everything except in Advanced Topics, where we'll have the option of using patient. Mike.lifeguard | talk 02:09, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
