As a result of the checks undertaken, it is excellent news; the man is breathing normally. It means, however, that there is another cause for his lack of response. The next check focuses on sourcing any life-threatening bleeding being present. Most bleeds result from cuts and injuries and are not life-threatening. Conducting a check around the man’s body is next, looking for any pooling of blood. From there ensure no blood or fluids are leaking from the eyes, ears, nose and mouth.
