The health and safety (first aid) regulations. Management of health and safety at work regulations. Make the workplace a safe environment to work in and prevent any risks to health. Make sure all equipment is in good working order and regularly checked. Regularly do risk assessments so that they can minimise and identify any potential risk that could hard staff or service users.
The arteries carry nutrients and oxygenated blood to the body’s tissues. The veins return de-oxygenated blood to the heart, where the cycle repeats itself continuously. However the blood vessels have a closed type of cardiovascular system in which blood doesn’t come in direct contact with the body tissues. Instead the blood flows in restricted pathways called blood vessels. The blood vessels are pathways of blood flow in the body.
Also planning the day and having a routine which best fits around each individual ensuring that their best interests and personal choices come first. Other ways are - It also our duty of care to promote independence, and ensure that all individuals are aware of what their rights are. We should be aware of how to recognize signs of abuse, neglect or unacceptable behaviour and to follow policies and procedures if this happens All individuals should be treated fairly and without prejudice Informing management if there is anything that is stopping us from carrying out our job safely Complying with health and safety regulations Ensuring residents know about the complaints procedure and to report a complaint | 1.2 Explain how duty of care contributes to the safeguarding or protectionof individuals | We are responsible in keeping individuals safe from harm, whether it is illness, abuse or harm and injury. We can do this by involving families and other health care professionals in their care plan, getting ideas on ways best to support their family. Following a code of practice and
There are also many employers responsibilities in relation to the prevention and control of infection. These include:- * Making sure that employees are aware of the health and safety aspects of working in that environment. Employers must make sure that their staff attend all relevant and correct training made available and work to the CQC standards or quality and safety. * They need to keep records in relation to infection control relevant and updated etc. * And to ensure that all PPE/equipment is correct and available and working at all time.
They tend to enlarge following vigorous exercise, a phenomenon called muscular hypertrophy and are located around the body. Conversely, cardiac muscle is confined only to the heart, its main role being to distribute blood. Its myogenic nature means contractions are under involuntary control and cause prevention from fatigue. The natural beating rhythm is adjusted via sympathetic and parasympathetic neurons of the CNS to suit physiological conditions. The function of these muscles is closely related to their structure and any differences in structure allow these two types of muscle to be identified.
The cardiac cycle is vital in all organisms with a heart, to pump blood round the body. There are phases of the cardiac cycle; systole (contraction) and diastole (relaxation). The heart consists of 4 chambers, 2 being the atria at the top of the heart and the other 2 being the ventricles at the bottom of the heart. Systole occurs separately in the atria and ventricles and diastole occurs simultaneously in all 4 chambers. The cardiac cycle is controlled by electrical waves that spread throughout the heart.
The right atrium receives deoxygenated blood via the superior and inferior vena cava. The blood then goes through the right ventricle and out to the lungs where it becomes oxygenated. The oxygenated blood then travels to the left atrium via the pulmonary veins, to the left ventricle, and then out to the rest of the body and organs through the aorta. The blood also supplies oxygen and nutrients to the heart via the coronary arteries that branch from the aorta. This pumping action of blood flow is controlled by electrical impulses in the heart.
Aii. Duty of Care affects our work in that we are expected to deliver care to the service users safely; we should therefore ensure that the basics are covered, such as cleaning our hands prior to work and ensuring that we wear the provided safety and protection equipment like gloves and aprons. Our employer is also to ensure that we undertake all the required training prior to delivering the care support. We should also ensure that we are up-to-date in the skills required from a training perspective. Aiii.
HSC 037 Promote and implement health and safety in health and Social care Health and safety basically means assessing your workplace and reducing the risks. As an employee I have to abide by the health and safety at work act 1974. This means I need to attend any mandatory training I have been put on, go to supervisions, adhere to policies and procedures, use correct equipment, do not misuse faulty equipment, report any risks that I have seen and co-operate with my employer. This is all to ensure the safety of myself and others. My employer must follow the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992, their responsibilities are to provide the mandatory training and supervisions, ensure policies and procedures are put in place, plan, organise, control, monitor and review health and safety arrangements, make sure the equipment is available and to maintain risk assessments and to deal with chemicals and other substances safely.
D1 The cardiovascular and respiratory system interlink with each other, this is because they both have a link when it comes to gases exchange. This is because inside the lungs there are air sacs they are called the alveoli there are millions of alveoli, around each alveoli are capillaries which are small blood vessels, as the walls of this is thin carbon dioxide goes into the alveoli from the capillaries and the oxygen goes back into the capillaries which then goes into heart, and the heart pumps blood all around the body. These systems work very closely together, this is to make sure that organ tissues get enough oxygen. Oxygen is needed for cellular function. The air which we breathe in which is kept in the lungs, is the transferred into blood.
