Welsh Ambulance Service

This week the focus group had a meeting with Mandy from the Welsh Ambulance Service. At the workshop we learnt about the 7 important checks ambulance staff will do to find out what is wrong. The 7 checks are:

1. Temperature (how hot or cold you are)

2. Blood Pressure (how hard your heart is beating)

3. Oxygen Levels (how much oxygen is in your blood)

4. Pulse (how fast your heart is beating)

5. Breathing- Ambulance staff will watch your chest to see if you are breathing ok.

6. Blood sugar levels (how much sugar you have in your blood)

7. Pain score (how much does it hurt?)

We also talked about what happens when you call 999.
