First Assessment

Please purchase the course before starting the lesson.

Determining whether a patient is conscious or unconscious can be done very quickly. If you notice a person appearing in distress, lying down in a public place, or possibly injured, call out to them.
  • Make sure the scene is safe before approaching the patient and conducting the BLS or ACLS Survey.
  • When encountering a person who is “down,” the first assessment to make is whether the patient is conscious or unconscious.
