1 This is a required part of the First Aid, CPR, and AED training at Notre Dame. University Health Services

2 In an EMERGENCY call 911 Alternate if using a cell phone on the Notre Dame campus: Call Immediately:  If someone collapses  Is having difficulty breathing  Is having chest pains that don’t go away  Is having a stroke  Has serious bleeding  Is unconscious  From a 631 or 634  From a 631 or 634 prefix number. It goes directly to the Notre Dame dispatcher.  From a cell phone  From a cell phone In this area it usually goes to the Indiana State Police dispatcher, who has to transfer it to a local dispatcher after learning the location of the emergency. In a cardiac emergency when every second counts, we therefore recommend using the local emergency number –

3 In all Medical Emergencies at ND In Indiana, the Local Fire Department is also dispatched, so that help can get to the scene quickly. Notre Dame Fire Department personnel are combination Fire Fighters / Emergency Medical Technicians (as a minimum) Notre Dame Security/Police will assist as the scene as needed. They also provide: Transportation to Health Services or the Emergency Room of a local hospital in non-emergency cases Transportation back to campus

4 For a STROKE - THINK FAST F Face – Weakness on one side A Arm – Weakness or Numbness in one arm S Speech – Slurred speech or trouble getting words out T Time – Note time of incident - Call 911 Immediately For Serious Bleeding Call, then apply direct pressure to the wound as soon as possible. If you see a person collapse Call, then start CPR as Soon as you can! If you are trained, use CPR with the breathing. The following is a brief demonstration of CPR that a dispatcher may tell a caller what to do if they are NOT trained in CPR.

6 Preventing Occupational Exposure to Blood-borne Pathogens

7 O. S. H. A The Occupational Exposure to Bloodborne Pathogens Regulation was issued to protect employees by reducing or removing the hazards of bloodborne pathogens from the workplace

8 By providing safeguards Proper work practices Proper work practices Engineering Controls Engineering Controls Use of protective equipment Use of protective equipment Training Training Disease transmission can be minimized and lives saved.

9 Notre Dame’s Blood-borne Pathogens Control Plan

10 Purpose: To ensure protection for University employees against exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials To ensure protection for University employees against exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials

11 Scope This applies to all applicable activities that involve the potential for exposure to blood or potentially infectious material

12 Terminology Bloodborne Pathogens Is a virus found in human blood which can be transmitted from person to person and causes disease in humans Bloodborne Pathogens Is a virus found in human blood which can be transmitted from person to person and causes disease in humans

13 Potentially Infectious Materials: All bodily fluids and non-intact tissue of the body Terminology

14 Exposure Incident A specific eye, nose, mucous membrane or open lesion contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials. Exposure Incident A specific eye, nose, mucous membrane or open lesion contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials. Terminology

15 Occupational Exposure An exposure incident which occurs while the person is performing job tasks. Occupational Exposure An exposure incident which occurs while the person is performing job tasks. Terminology

16 Regulated Waste Regulated Waste Waste which contains blood, semen, or vaginal secretions. These discarded materials shall be double bagged and labeled as Biohazardous Waste and shall NOT be discarded into regular trash. Terminology

17 Pathogens Enter the Body By: Direct Contact Direct Contact Indirect Contact Indirect Contact Airborne Contact Airborne Contact Vector-borne Contact Vector-borne Contact

18 Diseases of Concern DiseaseAffects the DiseaseAffects the Hepatitis B (HBV)Liver Hepatitis B (HBV)Liver Symptoms include: jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, intermittent nausea, vomiting Symptoms include: jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, intermittent nausea, vomiting Symptoms can occur 1-9 months after exposure Symptoms can occur 1-9 months after exposure HBV can survive for at least one week in dried blood HBV can survive for at least one week in dried blood

19 Diseases of Concern DiseaseAffects the DiseaseAffects the Hepatitis C (HCV)Liver Hepatitis C (HCV)Liver Symptoms include fatigue, jaundice, tenderness in the abdomen and other flu-like symptoms. Symptoms include fatigue, jaundice, tenderness in the abdomen and other flu-like symptoms. HCV slows down the ability of the liver to circulate blood and remove toxins.
