When the stretcher is carried, the injured person's feet are in front and the head is behind, and the head is raised first, then the foot is lifted, and the foot is placed first when it is lowered, and the stretcher should be at a consistent pace. When lifting to a height, the injured person's head is facing forward and his feet are facing back (such as going up a step or crossing a bridge). The stretcher in front should lower the stretcher and raise the back so that the patient can stay level. The opposite is true when you step down the stairs.
