Imagine you were hurt and there was no one to help you. You were there laying on the ground struggling by yourself. That’s where a healthcare worker job comes in handy. Medical students will come help you whenever you are hurt or feeling sick. As a medical student I will prepare mentally and physically before performing life saving techniques on patients.

First, a medical student will need to practice the basics of saving someone life like doing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). In CPR you first need to inspect the area for safety, and make a first assessment, and put on personal gear. Second, you check for breathing, life threating bleeding, and other life threating conditions if the person doesn’t seem to be responding by tapping, and shouting. Third, you call 911 and collect equipment if the person is not breathing or is simply gasping and not responding, otherwise direct someone to do so. Fourth, they place the person on a stable, flat surface with their back facing up. Fifth, they give 30 chest compressions. Sixth, you gibe 2 breaths. Seventh, they will repeat that and continue to give 30 chest compressions and 2 breaths. That’s the basic in emergency medical care.

Second, medical students will need to take care of your body like eating healthier and exercise. Food is made up of many food components. They are required for a variety of bodily processes. Foods high in vitamin B12 are necessary for healthy neural function, whereas foods high in vitamin D and calcium are necessary for strong bones. Vegetables, fruits, dairy products, carbs, and proteins make up most food kinds. It is necessary to have a balance of each type. The body's daily requirements decide this appropriate amount. 6–11 servings of bread and cereal, 2–4 servings of fruits, 3–5 servings of vegetables, 2–3 servings of milk and dairy products, 2–3 servings of meat, poultry, and eggs, and little use of oils and refined sugars provide most of a balanced diet. These will help their body feel better and energized when you eat healthier. For exercise our muscles are made to move every day since our bodies are not made to sit at a desk all day. A moderate amount of exercise can help you fend off numerous illnesses, such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, hypertension, and joint conditions. Try to exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, even if you only walk. Exercise has also been demonstrated to increase mood and fend fight depression. The best exercises are aerobic exercises like jogging and running. Aerobic exercises force your heart to beat more quickly. They increase in fat burning and cholesterol reduction. Heart attacks, strokes, and blood vessel illnesses have all been connected in a direct way to cholesterol levels. Losing weight lowers your body's insulin resistance, which lowers your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, one of the leading causes of the leading causes of mortality globally. The more they do those things the easier it will be to performing medical care.

Third, medical students need to practice emergency procedures. By doing this, they will be guaranteed to be ready for the worst. They will feel more at ease and are more equipped for unexpected problems if you follow emergency protocols. Being ready for crises not only makes it possible for you to react immediately, but it also reduces the stress related to workplace safety measures. They need to practice on how to do their job in a medical emergency when it comes to saving people. They will know how to save someone in a medical emergency. The more they practice, the better they will get at it. If they don’t practice something could go wrong and could end up going bad. They will need to practice what to do in a medical emergency to save the person’s life.

Fourth, medical students need to be social with other patients you are taking care of. When they are social, they will make the process of a medical emergency easier to handle. They could talk to the patient and get them distracted. They will end up focusing on them and will forget about worry. It will be easier to perform the skill they need to save someone.

Taking the time to practice these things will make easier in the medical care. Practicing CPR and emergency procedure, being social with patients, eating healthier and exercise will all help medical assistants in an emergency. I am appreciating my experience in the medical field and am eager to become a dental hygienist. I will continue to do those things to be a better health care worker. Having this scholarship will enable to purse my dream of becoming a dental hygienist.
