Hello, potential First Responders! This is a guide on how to deal with common injuries that you may face in your every-day workplace.



Before we start, you must learn how to read a Health Analyzers output. There will be four colored numbers, body temperature, a localized damage display, blood level and type, and pulse rate. This is the most important information on the scanner.


The four colored numbers represent the four primary types of damage that the medicine we are supplied with is designed to heal.


The first, in blue, is Respiratory damage. It is caused by suffocation, a low blood level, and heart/lung damage.


The second, in green, is Toxin damage. It is caused by poisons, or damaged kidneys/liver.


The third, in yellow, is Burn damage. It is caused by excessive heat/cold (Including fire), electricity, or lasers. Note: Burns can easily become injected. Do not allow burns to become infected.


The fourth and final, in red, is Brute damage. It is caused by blunt impacts (Such as being kicked/punched), cuts (Such as from knives), and ballistic projectile wounds.


Average resting pulse rate is roughly 60bpm, or Beats per Minute. Usually it will rise, such as after activity, however too high can indicate a problem.



Treatment of Respiratory damage is done through the application of Dexalin or Dexalin plus, which can be found in Oxygen Deprivation kits, or in Sleepers.


Treatment of Toxin damage is done through the application of Dylovene, which is found in Toxin First Aid Kits, and Sleepers.


Treatment of Burn damage is done through the application of Dermaline or Kelotane, which is produced by the Chemist and found in Burn First Aid Kits, or through the use of Advance Burn Kits, or Gauze/Ointment.


Treatment of Brute damage is done through the application of Bicaridine, which is produced by the Chemist, or through the use of Advance Trauma Kits or Gauze/Ointment. ALWAYS bandage bleeding wounds.


The Handheld scanner will show the presence of Internal Bleeding, however the advanced scanner will show the location. Internal bleeding is extremely deadly, and any patient who has Internal Bleeding should be taken to Medical immediately.


Of the many complications with can arise from becoming injured, infection is one of the most common. Burns are the most likely to become infected, and will become infected if left untreated. The symptoms of infection are an inflames wound, the inability to use the infected limb, and otherwise unexplainable toxin damage. Treating an Infection is rather simple, with the application of ointment and gauze, accompanied with an injection of spaceacillin, the patient will recover quickly and can be released after confirmation the infection has cleared up.



There are several ways to diagnose the four basic damage types without the use of a Health HuD, or a scanner.


Toxin Damage: Puking, pain all over the body


Burn Damage: Visible burns on the skin, possible infections


Brute Damage: Visible cuts/bruising, possible external/internal bleeding.


Respiratory Damage: Gasping, unconciousness, possible bleeding.



There are various ways to diagnose other conditions aswell:


Punctured Lung: The patient is coughing up blood, and complains of being unable to breath, and/or is unconcious.


Broken bones: The patient complains of feeling bones move around within their body.


Foreign Body: The patient complains of feeling an object move around within their body. Note: Do not rip out foreign objects, such a bullets lodged in wounds, or forks, as they may cause internal bleeding.


Brain damage: The patient complains of headaches, and impaired motor ability.


Deafness: The patient cannot hear and does not respond to verbal commands.


Blindness: The patient cannot see and will likely stumble around, and complain loudly.


Low blood count: The patient will feel woozy, and look pale. There may be drops or puddles of blood near the patient.


Heart Trauma: The symptoms of Low Blood Count will manifest, even if there is no lost blood.


Intoxication: Slurred speech, impairment of motor skills, often accompanied with liver damage.


Liver damage: Causes Toxin damage, of which causes more Liver damage, compounding the issue to slowly become deadly.



Tips and important information:


Never, ever drag a patient. Grab them and lift them, place them on an office chair, or use a rollerbed. Do not ever drag a patient under any circumstances.


Always attempt to calm a hallucinating patient. They believe what they see is real. If multiple attempts (3 or more) to calm the patient are unsuccessful, attempt to sedate/restrain.


Always listen to Doctors and their orders to handle patients. They have trained for these situations, and usually know whats best.


Do not attempt complex medical procedures (Tranfusions, operation of cloning equipment, surgery, Virology) unless you are trained in the procedure. It may result to the death or injury of you and others.


Upon the confirmation of a viral outbreak, avoid all other crew (Except for trained Medical personnel donning a Biological Suit designed to ward off biohazards), unless ordered to by trained Medical Personnel.


Do not administer medicine unless you are ordered to by trained Medical personnel, or you are completely aware of its functions and dangers, and there are no trained personnel near to do so for you.


Autoinjectors contained within Medical kits contain Inaprovaline, a chemical designed to slow the worsening of a patients condition. Use if a patient is in critical, or soon will be.
