6. Hints for the Transportation of Injured People

The health condition of the injured person is perhaps essentially influenced by the right transportation.

- People who had an accident caused by electric current must be transported in lying position.

- The injured person must be able to be transported. (Blood circulation and respiration must be functioning.) There must be not signs of critical injuries.

- If medical staff is present, the question of transportation is decided by them.

- The hospital to which the injured person is going to be transported has to be informed of the kind of accident, kind of injuries and the first aid measures taken so far.

- With low temperature, the injured person must be covered with blankets.

- Make sure that the injured person cannot fall down during transportation.

Why must injured people be carried by at least two rescuers?
