This post is really just sharing an idea I saw last year shared on some forums by Mukesh Soni. The aim is to simplify your decision making in the case of a severe medical emergency. As these events are so rare and very stressful it isn't surprising that people regularly forget all their training.
To help overcome this adrenaline fueled fight or flight reaction he recommends having medical emergency cribsheets stored with your emergency drug kit. These can act as a guide for what the cause of the problem may be and a reminder of the normal steps to take. Obviously it is only a guide and you must assess the whole situation and act accordingly but anything that might help to save a life is very welcome. It is also worth double checking that all information on these sheets matches the training you have had in your area and perhaps modify them to suit your needs.
You can either store them just as separate sheets in the drugs box, or consider pouching up different meds to go with each type of emergency.
If you like these cribsheets, you can download them from my google drive available via the useful resources page here:
