This demonstration of the patient assessment system is based upon the following scenario:

You and a fellow wilderness first aider are hiking along in the nearby mountains on a chilly, overcast December day. About 20 minutes ago, two hikers passed you by and one of them did not look well. As you continue hiking, you come across the pair stopped off the side of the trail and one of them tells you that his friend, a 25-year-old male, has just collapsed, and is unconscious.
