Disposable gloves provide a physical barrier between the wearer and physical hazards such as bacteria and viruses. However, it is important that we dispose of this physical barrier correctly. Incorrect disposal of gloves can result in viruses and bacteria spreading due to cross contamination.
If a person is unconscious but is breathing and has no other life-threatening conditions, they should be placed in the recovery position.
Putting someone in the recovery position will keep their airway clear and open. It also ensures that any vomit or fluid won't cause them to choke.
Would you know what normal breathing looked like in a victim?
Open the airway and quickly check for breathing and a pulse.
Normal (effective) breathing is regular, quiet and effortless. Isolated
or infrequent gasping in the absence of other breathing in an
unconscious victim may be agonal gasps, which can occur after the
heart has stopped beating. Agonal gasps are not breathing. Care for
the victim as though he or she is not breathing at all.
What would be the first steps to take if you found someone collapsed on the ground?
Approach the scene only if it is safe
Check for responsiveness and, if the victim is conscious, obtain consent.
If no response, summon more advanced medical personnel.
Check for breathing and pulse

Advanced resuscitation by Emergency Medical Services and other healthcare providers
Post-cardiac arrest care
Recovery (including additional treatment, observation, rehabilitation, and psychological support)
THE TEXAS GOOD SAMARITAN ACT
While some states’ laws only dictate when an individual may act as a Good Samaritan, other states also have laws protecting Good Samaritans from negligence claims if they act in good faith. The Texas Good Samaritan Act covers both. The law states:
“A person who in good faith administers emergency care at the scene of an emergency or in a hospital is not liable in civil damages for an act performed during the emergency unless the act is willfully or wantonly negligent.”
It’s vital for people who act as Good Samaritans to understand that this law only protects them if they act in good faith, or solely out of concern for another human being’s safety and not for reward or any other motivation. The Texas Good Samaritan Act clearly states the law does not protect individuals who seek payment for the emergency aid they render to others, people present during an emergency situation who were there for business purposes or to sell a service, or “an admitting physician or treating physician associated by the admitting physician of a patient bringing a health-care liability claim.”
Diabetic Emergency would you know what to do?
Give them something sweet to eat or a non-diet drink.
If someone has a diabetic emergency, their blood sugar levels can become too low. This can make them collapse. Giving them something sugary will help raise their blood sugar levels and improve their bodily function. Avoid giving them a diet drink, as it won’t have any sugar in it and will not help them.
Signs CPR Might Be Needed:
Sudden Collapse: Check for breathing and a pulse.
Unconsciousness: Try to wake the person. If unsuccessful, check for breathing and pulse.
Breathing Problems: No breathing or limited breathing may call for CPR.
No Pulse: If a pulse can’t be felt, the heart may have stopped.
Electrocution Injuries: If you witness an electrical injury. Do not touch the victim. Try to kill the power source or remove the victim from the electrical contact, but be sure to use something that doesn’t conduct electricity, like a wooden broom or stick.
Drowning, Drugs, Exposure to Smoke or Inhalants: Check for breathing and a pulse. Injuries of this nature might call for a combination of rescue breathing and chest compressions.
