How do you check a person for consciousness ?

3 COMMENTS

  1. Tap their shoulder and ask if they are okay, if they do not respond you can do a sternal rub, if they do not respond to verbal or painful stimuli they are probably unconscious

  2. -you can do a “shake and shout” ( sir, sir! can you hear me?).
    -a sternal rub.
    or in extreme cases take a pencil (not the point, use the eraser) and press it against the cuticle as a pain stimulant( paramedics use this technique).
    most of these are used when you find a person alone and something has gone wrong.. fallen off a ladder, passed out in a bathroom ect. and can be learned from your local Red Cross.
