Prompt: You and your family are gathering for a large family dinner. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and even two sets of grandparents are all expected to attend. It’s a very big deal and everyone has agreed to help with the cooking and set up for the celebration. And, as it turns out, it’s also likely to be a day that everyone will remember for a long time to come.
Part 1: Your nephew, Cooper, is a typical two-year-old, who runs everywhere and is into everything. After pouring liquid dishwashing detergent into the washer, you turn your back to put the soap away. In the meantime, Copper sees the yellow liquid, yells, “Pudding” and puts a handful of the detergent (about 2 ounces) into his mouth, and swallows. List and describe at least four (4) first aid steps you would now take to care of Copper?
Scoring: 20 points (5 points for correctly listing each first aid step)
Part 2: After swallowing the soap, Copper has finally settled down and is taking a nap. The kitchen is relatively quiet, and your brother Ben has just finished boiling potatoes and is using a colander to drain the water. As he’s pouring the water into the sink, he slips on a rug, jiggles the pot of potatoes, and spills hot water on both his arms and hands. List and describe at least four (4) first aid steps you would now take to care of Ben?
Scoring: 20 points (5 points for correctly listing each first aid step)
Part 3: You’ve had a busy morning! There have already been two situations where you have had to use your extensive KHP 190 first aid skills and you’re wondering what else could possibly go wrong! Unfortunately, you didn’t have to wait very long. Alex, your brother-in-law wanders into the kitchen, after watching baseball games and drinking beer all afternoon, announces that he’s hungry. He sees a plate of chocolate brownies, fresh out of the oven, and remarks, “These look good!”, and pops one into his mouth. Unknown to Alex, who is allergic to tree nuts, these brownies contained walnuts. After about 30 seconds, Alex’s face starts to swell and he’s having trouble breathing. List and describe four (4) first aid steps you would now take to care of Alex?
Scoring: 20 points (5 points for correctly listing each first aid step)
Part 4: Thanks to your quick action, Alex has recovered from his allergic reaction and is back watching baseball and drinking beer. But things quickly escalate again when you notice that your 75-year-old uncle Dan seems to be having a hard time walking. His gait is unsteady, and he seems to have some weakness on the left side. You suspect that he’s having a stroke. List and describe the protocol that you would use to help you determine if Uncle Dan is indeed having a stroke? Additionally, list and describe at least three (3) first aid steps you would then take if you determine a stroke is very likely?
Scoring: 20 points (5 points for correctly listing each first aid step)
Part 5: Uncle Dan is fine. It seems that he may have been sampling a bit too much of the celebratory wine before dinner. But things have picked up in the kitchen. Everyone is hustling around, trying to get things ready to eat by 6 PM, in spite of all of the preceding drama. Your grandmother is particularly concerned about her green bean casserole, which has been a family favorite for decades. She’s been scrambling around, moving here and there in the kitchen, trying to get the dish in the oven as soon as possible. You notice she appears to be sweating quite a bit, is somewhat out of breath, looks a bit pale, and has been complaining about pain between her shoulder blades and neck, nausea, and how tired she’s feeling. But she’s a tough old lady and keeps on working, in spite of your growing concerns. But based upon these symptoms, what sudden illness do you think your grandmother might be having? List and describe at least four (4) first aid steps you would now take to care of your grandmother?
Scoring: 20 points (5 points for correctly listing each first aid step)
By the end of the day, you’re exhausted from all that has happened. Even though it was truly a day to remember, everything eventually ended well for all, mainly because YOU were there and KNEW WHAT TO DO when emergencies happen!
