First Aid Tips

Here are some basic first aid tips that will help you in your daily lives:

1. First Aid for Cardiac Arrest-

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is the most critical medical process of all. If a person is in cardiac arrest and CPR is not performed, that person will eventually die. By using an automated external defibrillator or Performing CPR, you could save a life. Some of the basic tips are: call 911 or the medical alert system for the locale, immediately begin the chest compression regardless of your training, start to compress hard and fast in the center of the chest that allows recoiling between the compression. Hand this task over a trained individual the minute they arrive.

2. First Aid for Bleeding-

Nevertheless, how severe, almost all kinds of bleeding can be controlled. Mild bleeding will usually stop on its own. If severe bleeding is not controlled, it will lead to shock and eventually death. The steps taken if you are faced with bleeding are: ensure to cover the wound with a cloth and apply pressure, do not apply a tourniquet as they damage the limb than heal it.

3. First Aid for Burns-

The very first step to treat a burn is to stop the burning process. If there are chemicals, it should be cleaned off. The ones caused by electricity should be turned off, Heat needs to be cooled down with running water. Some of the basic steps are: flush the burned area with burning water for several minutes and make sure not to use ice, do not break any blisters that have formed, make sure to apply a light gauze bandage

4. First Aid for Blisters-

If the blister is very small, unbroken and not very painful, it is best to leave it as it is. By covering the blister to prevent rubbing and pressure on it can cause it to swell more and possibly burst on its own. If the blister is large in size and painful, especially if the activity you are in is not finished, for instance you are hiking, following steps taken: Use a sterilized needle and make small punctures at the edge and let the fluid out, apply antibiotic ointment and cover the blister to protect it from further rubbing.


5. First Aid for Fractures-

There are many kinds of broken bone myths, such as not being able to walk on a broken leg or whether there is a difference between a break and a fracture. By taking these steps for a suspected fracture can be useful: do not try to straighten the limb, elevate the extremity, apply a cold pack on the injury and avoid placing the ice directly on the skin, taken in anti-inflammatory drugs such as naproxen, etc
