First Aid: How to transport injured


According to Erste-Hilfe Kurs Führerschein München the transport the victim as quickly, safely and sparingly as possible. Depending on the type of injury and the means available (internal or improvised), victims can be transported in different ways: supporting, carrying in the arms, transporting by vehicle.

Erste Hilfe Kurs munchen says that a wounded person should always be transported upwards or downwards with his head upwards.

The injured person must be placed on the stretcher on the side opposite to the injured part of the body. When the spine, especially the cervical spine, is injured, it is extremely dangerous to transport the victim. If there is no external hazard, we recommend waiting for an ambulance. If it is necessary to transfer the injured person to another place, do it on a flat hard surface (door, boards, billboard), without jolting (walk with a helper on a foot-to-foot command, starting usually by stepping with your left foot).
