Emergency Medical Responder - General Impression

For any First Responder or Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) knowing when someone is sick and then how sick they are is really important. In training this is called the “General Impression”.


One way to think of general impression is to think of it as it’s the “view from the door”. Which needs to involve four things: the patient’s behavior, their position, their breathing, and the appearance of their skin.


The general impression drives your reaction and initial interventions making it an important tool to use as part of your Scene and Primary Assessment.


GO BEYOND YOUR LIMITS!
