Identify common limb injuries and explain how to initially respond to a victim with a fracture, sprain or dislocation
Recognize when a victim may have a back, neck or head injury
Identify the initial actions to take for someone whom you suspect has a back, neck or head injury
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2013, Musculoskeletal Injuries cases accounted for 33% of all worker injury and illness cases. Knowing how to care for these injuries properly when they happen can make a huge difference in someone’s life. Knowing the proper first aid technique can be the difference between someone being affected for the next 2 weeks and the rest of their life.
The goal of this course is to provide important, accurate information about Musculoskeletal Injuries and how to care for them.
