Strangulation Assessment Card

The strangulation assessment card is a quick reference tool to help professionals conduct the initial assessment of a victim that has recently been strangled.  The front page of this tool identifies what signs to look for, what symptoms the victim may be experiencing, and when to transport a victim to the hospital.  It also includes a checklist of things to remember when conducting an initial assessment. On the reverse side of this tool, there are key points that should be communicated to a victim during their assessment, as well as key points that should be communicated to medical providers who may be assisting them.
