Management Of Injuries By Paige, Dianne, Cindy and Laura
Teeth Injuries Signs and SymptomsManagement of Injuries Pain, bleeding from the mouth and/or a dislodged tooth. If the tooth is loose, straighten the tooth, splint it with foil (covering it and the tooth either side), and seek dental advice immediately. If the tooth has been dislodged, rinse the tooth in milk or a saline solution. Then replace it correctly in the socket, splint the tooth and seek dental advice immediately.
Abdominal Injuries Signs and SymptomsManagement of Condition Pain, grunting breathing, nausea and/or vomiting, pallor (pale colour of the skin), bruising and tenderness at injury site. Blood in the urine or escaping from the genitals or anus. DRSABCD. Loosen clothing and lay the casualty on their back with head and shoulders slightly raised and a rolled up towel or blanket under the knees. Ensure casualty does not eat or drink, if they get thirsty moisten their lips.
Chest Injuries Signs and SymptomsManagement of Condition Casualty has breathing difficulties, gasping for breaths. Pain over the injury site, cramping in the rib cage, and the area may be tender to touch. Blood in the mouth which is coming from the lungs. DRSABCD. Help casualty into a comfortable condition. Encourage shallow breathing, pad the injured area insuring bandages are tied on uninjured side and seek urgent medical advice
Nasal Injuries Signs and SymptomsManagement of Condition May be caused by infection, injury, allergic reaction, nose picking or an object being pushed into the nostril Casualty may experience pain, swelling, deformity, bruising, bleeding, a sensation of flowing liquid at the back of the throat and the urge to swallow frequently. Perform DRSABCD Ask casualty to breathe through their mouth as their nose may be congested Do not blow the nose as it may be fractured and cause excessive damage Tilt the head slightly forward and pinch the nose on the softest part Do not tilt the head back as blood may travel to the mouth. The aim is to get the blood out, not bring it in. Apply cooling to the back of the neck and head for ten minutes. If bleeding persists, seek medical advice.
