Scenario Overview:
This scenario is a quick and simple one to get people warmed up at the beginning of a scenarios session that tests people on their very basic primary survey for an unresponsive patient with no obvious/apparent reason for them to be unresponsive. The first aiders will arrive to find the patient lying face down, unresponsive.
First Aider Easy
How the scenario should progress:
The patient will stay unresponsive throughout.
Patient 1:
Name: Unknown    Age: whatever age the actor is    Sex: Male
Medication: Unknown
Allergies: Unknown
Past medical/family/social history: Unknown
Findings on examination: There is no blood around the patient and no obvious mechanism (although whatever is around the patient might start making them think it through and wonder). On a top-to-toe survey, no obvious injuries will be found. All observations will be as found on the patient-actor. Patient is breathing.
Possible treatment from first aiders: Good, quick primary survey. Head to toe examination. Recovery position.
Time after start: Use actors

Tips for the patient actors:
Do not respond at all throughout.
