First Aid: Electrical Injuries by Precious Hearts Nashville

Electricity can burn the body inside and outside. It can also stop breathing or cause a deadly abnormal heart rhythm.

Signs may include: small marks on the body. No one can actually tell how much damage has occurred on the inside by the markings on the outside.

First Aid Steps-

1. Make sure the scene is safe. Get the first aid kit and AED. Wear gloves or other personal protection.

2. Phone or send someone to phone your emergency response number (or 911).

3. When it is safe to touch the injured person, see if he/she needs CPR. If he does, give CPR. If you don’t know how, give hands-only CPR.

4. A healthcare professional should check anyone who has had an electrical injury.
