First aid in sign language #1 Theory

Hubert Glagowski - a lifeguard for 7 years and a water rescuer for 12 years. In PJM, Hubert explains the principles of first aid.

We invite you to watch a truly exceptional material that saves lives. Hubert Głagowski is a hearing-impaired paramedic who has agreed to share his knowledge with us. In the first part, we will learn the theoretical principles of first aid. In the following two parts, we will discover how first aid is applied in practice and how the Alarm 112 application works, which was primarily created for deaf and hearing-impaired individuals who cannot call for help by phone.

From the above video, you will learn:

  • What is first aid?
  • What are the consequences of not providing assistance?
  • When to call emergency services?
  • What is the “chain of survival”?
  • What is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)?
  • How to safely initiate first aid?
  • What are the basic resuscitation procedures for adults?
  • When to stop resuscitation efforts?
  • What is the safe position for pregnant women?
  • What are the basic resuscitation procedures for children?
  • What to do in the case of choking for adults, children, and pregnant women?
  • How to respond to fainting?
  • And finally, don’t be afraid to help!

Medical rescuer Hubert Głagowski, who is hearing-impaired, stands in the middle of a room that resembles an emergency department. There is a bed for patients with a large overhead lamp and a lot of medical equipment. The walls and floor of the room are yellow, giving the entire picture a yellow hue.
