Universal Precautions is an approach to infection control. Universal precautions should be taken in all forms of lifesaving actions and medical care, including rendering CPR and First Aid, or using an AED.

According to the concept of Universal Precautions, all human blood and certain human body fluids are treated as if known to be infectious for HIV, HCV, and other bloodborne pathogens.

This means that precautionary methods should be used every time the potential for exposure to blood is present, even if you know the injured person, and even if the person looks healthy.

Universal Precautions means:

EVERY TIME… WITH EVERYBODY!
