Personally I find StackOverflow to be good for personal development. We should all spend some time trying to debug code without a compiler now and then.

Wouldn't work in my case, as I don't carry Hydrogen Peroxide in my med kit :)

+1. I would only add "Ask about allergies and medical conditions".

"Umm, should be easy" is superfluous and doesn't add to the answer. Edited out to improve tone.

comment Are water purification tablets safe?
As someone who recently had Amoebic Dysentery from hiking in the Appalachians an getting bad water -- I'll always be treating/filtering/boiling. Even if I'd only get sick once every ten years... well you have to have it to get the point. It is pretty bad.

comment Is there a dose guide for Dexamethasone?
My point wasn't about law in the slightest. It was skepticism on the ability to, as you say, "act properly". People have died as a result of people who "knew" they were going to save the injured, but were really just overconfident in their ability to determine and treat the condition/injury. My concern is not for legal ramifications, but rather for the ability (or lack thereof) of a untrained laymen in the case presented. Honestly confused as to how U.S. law got into this at all, since I mention it nowhere in my answer.

@EverythingRightPlace -- My point was more that non-emergency personnel don't necessarily know when someone "is going to die" and might mistake a non-fatal condition for a fatal one. I updated the answer, hope that helps :)

I removed the second question about whether or not they are the same, and made some edits to layout, etc.
