[Explanation from the first post in this series] I’ve been posting questions on Facebook Notes to help both me and my friends prepare for our “Road Crash Rescue Operator” assessment. It struck me that a lot of the questions would have essentially universal answers, and that it could be interesting to compare notes where the answers aren’t universal. So, I’ll run a series of posts setting out the questions that I’ve prepared – after they’ve been up for a while I’ll put the questions in the comments.
The questions are all drawn from the Country Fire Authority / State Emergency Service’s Road Rescue Learning Manual (2nd Ed., Melbourne, 2008).
And now, today’s questions:
Why is vertical movement a particular concern with a vehicle on its roof?
How should casualties with suspected spinal injuries be moved?
What hazards are presented to a rescuer by physical casualty entrapment?
How can a casualty’s own stress be managed?
How can lateral movement by a vehicle be prevented?
