Helmet Removal Assistance


When removing helmets, especially in emergency situations, assistance may be required from bystanders. Follow these steps:

  • First Responder: Provide verbal instructions and oversee the helmet removal process.
  • Bystander: Assist the first responder by following their commands carefully, even if they have limited knowledge.

By collaborating effectively, the helmet can be safely removed without causing harm to the patient.
