Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Shock is a very serious health condition in which the body isn't delivering enough blood to the brain, heart, and other vital organs. A person in shock can suffer permanent organ damage or even die. If you suspect someone is in shock always summon emergency medical care as quickly as possible. In addition to calling for medical care, basic first aid for person in shock involves calming the person, having the person lie down, covering him or her with a blanket, and waiting for medical help to arrive. Because a person may go into shock as the result of an injury like a cut, you may also have to provide additional first aid. And because a person in shock may not be breathing or may not be circulating blood, you may have to clear their airway, provide artificial respiration or perform CPR.
