Dealing with a patient at the scene
Work through your primary survey of the patient, if there are any time-critical features, conduct an emergency transfer to the nearest appropriate hospital while providing patient management on route.
Special considerations may need to be given to;
Management and outcomes may depend on different magnitudes of current. Equal to or lower than 240v being a domestic low voltage level, greater than 480v being industrial high voltage.
A low voltage exposed patient with no injuries, is asymptomatic, and normal 12 lead ECG may not require hospital assessment. Although it would be down to you as a clinician to assess this, ensure safety netting is in place, and further support if needed.
Any high voltage exposed patient should be transferred to further care, with defib pads attached in case of any sudden cardiac arrhythmias.
