If Someone Requires Medical Attention
- Remain calm.
- Call 911 and notify Campus Safety.
- Do not move the person unless safety dictates.
- If trained, use pressure to stop the bleeding and provide CPR.
- Be aware of hazards associated with bloodborne pathogens. Do not come into contact with body fluids. If exposed to suspected infectious material, wash the exposed area thoroughly with soap and water and seek immediate medical attention.
- Comfort the patient and reassure them that medical assistance is on the way.
- First aid is just that. Do not jeopardize your health or the health of the patient. Wait for professional help if you are not able to provide proper first aid safely.
The University of Tampa has AEDs (automated external defibrillators) on campus to help increase the chances of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Each year, sudden cardiac arrest claims the lives of at least 250,000 people. The only known treatment for sudden cardiac arrest is the use of a defibrillator, which uses a powerful electric shock to stop the abnormal rhythm so that the heart can return to a more normal beating pattern.
