  • Carbomonoxide poisoning
10-year-old Johnny does not repeatedly answer to his mother from the bathroom. His pregnant mother decides to check him up. Johnny is laying in a bathtub with his head above the water. Imagine you are at home alone with the son in the mother's situation. What will you do?

Pull Johnny out of the tub and immediately begin CPR.

Wrong answer

It is the right decision to pull the son out of the bathtub. CPR is indicated when there are no signs of blood circulation or breathing. There is no reason to start CPR, because Johnny is breathing.


Back

Take him out of the bathtub. Call 112.

Correct answer

It is important to prevent further complications. There is a risk of drowning, so you pull the son out of the tub. Then it is necessary to call professional help, i.e. 112, where they will instruct you on the next steps.


Continue

The most important thing is to call 112. We can leave the son lying in the bathtub.

Wrong answer

It is not advisable to let the child lying in the bath.


Back

Strongly shake with Johnny several times, if he does not react, you start to scream and you hurry to ask your neighbours for help.

Wrong answer

Even in crisis, it is important, to maintain perspective and solve the problem with a cool head. Instead of wasting time searching for the neighbours, it is necessary to call 112 immediately. Your hysterical behavior can only hurt youself, unborn child, and won't help Johnny anyway.
