Description

Learning is fun. First aid is fun. That makes learning first aid fun-fun. Hope you enjoy feeling it as much as I've enjoyed creating it.

If you‟re old enough to be reading this……you‟re old enough to have experienced injuries…

…to have bled…

Despite this, thatand blah, blah,blah, you survivedand still havetomorrowsbecause…

…you excel at First Aid…

…you knew what to do when you needed help… …and did what needed be done in time.

What I‟m assertingis…if you could helpyourself, you canhelp others.

Looking at stats, nearly 173 people died in workplaces around the world last year…Source: The Health & Safety Executive 2011/12 annual reports

However…

In more occasions than we can happily accept… …whether or notpeople have any such thing as…“tomorrow” depends on…

Whether they get the right aid…

…at the right time… …or not.

Let‟s offer what wecan to people,bearing in mindthese…

Before getting to Rule (1) The Foundation

First Aid is……the act of human love you can exercise forsomeone when they need medical attention butyet to get it.And as such, it aims…

G.R (1) To prevent preventable death…

They say thatJustice delayed isJustice denied.

Timely treatment saves lives.

G.R (2) To reduce anxiety if not torelax/comfort…

Minus the fear, aninjured person still has an avalanche of problems.

Take anxiety out of the equation, facilitation oftreatment becomes a lot easier.

G.R (3) To reduce if not end pain…

Part of Medicine says:alleviate the pain even if you can‟t eradicate the underlying problem.

Quality of life doesn‟tjust mean the absence of disease or infirmity.

When you sense someone in need offirst aid… Help…

G.R (4) Watch out for your own safety.You‟re engaging to solve the problem inthe first place, not to become the nextproblem yourself… So…If it doesn‟t look safe for you toengage… first…

G.R (5) Call for help when it seems available.

You needn‟t solo. Believe it or not, peoplewill energetically and voluntarily come tothe aid of someone who is aiding someone.

Hazard PersonAnd…for a start…

Separate the person from the hazard,where Hazard is heavier than Person.e.g. When a part of a building crushesdown on a person and there is more tocrush down… Or…

Separate the hazard from the person,where Person is heavier than Hazard.e.g. When there is a splinter in yourthumb…

When there is only one person requiringhelp…

Treat Call for helpfirst. later.

But if you have to help more than oneperson at once…

Call for help first. You sure can‟t help „em all alone. And then…

Treat the one who is bleeding profusely…

…as this may lead to death due tohypovolaemic shock extreme blood loss…

…and then the one whose breathing/heartbeatstopped…

…as the brain dies within 4 seconds ofhypoxia oxygen shortage…

…and then the one who is unconcious with a pulse…

…in that order.

Prevent Preventable Reduce Death AnxietyReduce Pain Watch Out for Yourself Call for Help

Some final words

Speaking about First aid, you don‟t justdo that. Correct measures need to belearned…

…trained…

…and practiced.

While it remains a tough truth that youcan‟t just do first aid with these rules,it is worth noting that every first aidmeasure stems out from them.

When calling the ambulance isn‟t goodenough, by bringing those rules to actionwith good judgment and exercise ofcommon sense, you might save someoneperhaps. or ease

Let‟s keep alive what we can.
