I have a question related to memory items in Airbus FBW families!
As we know they are 10. Nine of them are reported on qrh the last one only in the fcom (pilot incapacitation).
If we have a pilot incapacitation we will apply procedures by memory. If we want to check we have done all the procedure correctly, we should ask to somebody to give us the from.
Why airbus doesn't put it on qrh?

What are the memory items for pilot incapacitation?

If a cockpit crew member becomes incapacitated, the remaining crew member must call a cabin attendant as soon as practicable.
The best way to request assistance from the cabin crew, is by means of the passenger address system:
"ATTENTION, PURSER TO COCKPIT PLEASE” he purser or any other cabin attendant must proceed to the cockpit immediately.
The cabin attendant must then: Tighten and manually lock the shoulder harness of the incapacitated crew member; Push the seat completely aft; Recline the seat back.
It takes 2 people to remove the dead weight of an unconscious body from a seat without endangering any controls and switches.
If it is not possible to remove the body, one cabin attendant must remain in the cockpit to take care of and observe the incapacitated crew member.
In coordination with the purser: Request assistance from any medically qualified passenger.
Check if a type qualified company pilot is on board to replace the incapacitated crew member.

It's in my company QRH.
But surely as a Pilot with some sort of Brain you could stumble through without having to read it !!!

What about pressing the takeover button to 40 seconds to isolate the incapacitated pilot's sidestick? That's in our incapacition procedure and a high priority.

Yep in mine too:--
PILOT NOT INCAPACITATED
· Fly the aircraft. Use the side-stick take over Pb if considered necessary. (Other side-stick is latched off after 40 SEC)
· Confirm incapacitation.
