    Jim,

    Thanks for the powerpoint. Interesting, and new to me, information.

    P.S. Glad to see you attended the AORE conference again.

  2. Thanks.

    I would check the airway also, however the law says….., not that the law knows how to keep someone alive versus out of court….

    Very few have been prosecuted here in the US and then only when their actions were so bad they amounted to intentional acts to hurt rather than help.

    It is always difficult, especially in a PowerPoint that is posted to explain that just because the law says one thing, that does not mean you will be criminally charged. However, I do believe that we will see lawsuits over the issue.

    Very informative and well worth a read. However, as an instructor myself, and a well trained first aider would disagree with Myth 10's answer. No matter where I were, if I were alone, Airway would come first. In a group, Airway -> contact for help.

    I would also add that circumstance should be taken into account in all cases. In the UK no first aider has ever been prosecuted, as long as they were trying to help.
