First Aid

Seven Life Saving steps:

  1. Check for consciousness
    • tap the shoulder and ask "are you ok?"
  2. Check for Breathing and pulse
    • Place your ear next to mouth and look down the chest to feel for breath and see the chest rise and fall to indicate breathing. Place two fingers across the carotid artery to for pulse.
  3. Check for bleeding
    • Depending on the type of wound dressings are usually the treatment with pressure and elevation then pressure point if bleeding hasn't stopped. Capillary wounds are scrapes that just require a Band-Aid venial injuries are oozing blood that require a dressing and pressure. Artery wounds are spurting blood and usually requires a tourniquet when applied mark a T on the forehead.
  4. Check for shock
    • Signs of shock include clammy pail skin, unresponsiveness, dizziness, vomiting, and dementia. Treatment includes raising the feet to keep as much blood flow to the brain keep the victim calm and re-assured. Keep them warm with a blanket. Loosen restricting clothing.
  5. Check for fractures
    • The victim if conscious will know were he is hurt and will give you a clue to where a break might be. Bruising a Swelling are signs of a break as well as deformity. There are two different types of breaks, Closed and Open breaks. Open were the boned is broken and pierce the skin. Closed is a break that you can’t see but you can feel. Both require a splint to immobilize the limb but open breaks require treatment for bleeding but never try to push the bone back into place.
  6. Check for burns
    • First check the surroundings for signs of a fire or electricity. there are three types of burns, first degree, second degree, and third degree. if clothes are around the burns do not remove only wrap a dressing around them.
    • First Degree is pink skin burns, that require just cool water to cool the skin.
    • Second Degree is a burn that is quite painful and blisters will arise on the effected skin. treated the same way as first degree with the addition of raping the injusry with a dressing.
    • Third Degree burns are chared flesh and loss of feeling do to sered nerve endings. Treatment is diferent in the fact you don't put water on the wound only wrap in a dressing.
  7. Check for head injuries
    • head injuries can consist of a bump on the head to brain damage. gently move the head in both hands supporting the neck as to not cause paralisous and only lift the head a few inches to check the back of the head for bleeding and/or swollen maybe mushy areas. all you can do is treat for bleeding and support the head and neck
