Emergency situations can happen at any time and anywhere, for this reason it is important to know what to do. Continuing with our topic of First Aid at work, this issue of HealthTips allows readers to learn about what a sudden cardiac arrest is and how to provide "Hands -Only CPR" to someone in need. This issue also addresses what to do when other emergency situations occur, such as choking, diabetic shock and heat stroke. You can use this issue of Health Tips to teach agricultural workers basic first aid steps in each of these emergency situations. It is available in both English and Spanish.
