What is first aid?
First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury or a life threatening medical emergency.
A person is who is not an expert can perform First aid, but he/she should be trained to a sick or injured person until definitive medical treatment can be accessed.
Certain self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care past the first aid intervention. It generally consists of a series of simple and in some cases, potentially life-saving techniques that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.
While first aid can also be performed on all animals, the term generally refers to care of human patients.
What are the aims of first aid?
- To preserve life - this is the main aim of first aid that is to save lives. This includes the life of the first aider, the casualty (the victim, the injured/sick person), and bystanders.
- To prevent further harm (prevent the condition from worsening, or danger of further injury) - the patient must be kept stable and his/her condition must not worsen before medical services arrive. This may include moving the patient out from any cause of harm, applying first aid techniques, keeping the casual warm and dry, applying pressure to wounds to stop bleeding, etc.By doing this we can prevent worsening of the condition
- Promote recovery: first aid also involves trying to start the recovery process from the illness or injury, and in some cases might involve completing a treatment, such as in the case of applying a plaster to a small wound
First aid training also involves the prevention of initial injury and responder safety, and the treatment phases.
