Identify and explain how to properly respond to a victim injured with a fracture, sprain or dislocation.
Recognize when a victim may have a back, neck, and spinal injury, head trauma, or concussion, and identify the actions to take for someone who may have these injuries.
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.
