DER KRAFTFAHRENDE ARZT IM EINSATZ AM UNIFALLORT

In this work a description is given of the 5 immediate measures which the first aider should undertake at the scene of an accident: (1) make the accident site safe (2) inspect the injured; (3) inform the police and the emergency organisation; (4) first aid for the injured; (5) hand-over to the emergency organisation. The special activities which a doctor should carry out in this situation are described. They concern mainly first-aid to the patients having regard to breathing, circulation and danger to the injured from shock and the choice of the type of transport to convey the injured to the clinic.
