How does it work?
Quick and easy. No pronunciations required.
Just point and observe the patient’s responses.
First locate the language of your patient by showing the patient the list of languages and flags.
Next, go to the page with the desired language.
Flip the two outside English language covers over the inside target language pages.
Identify the English translation using the number.
Flip up the cover.
Point to the corresponding word or phrase of the target language translation so the patient can see.
Look for the patient’s reaction.
Most questions prompt a yes/no answer or for the patient to point to their injury site.
In other questions you can refer to the symbol section in the second half of the booklet to aid in obtaining answers.
