First Aid

During an urgent situation, immediately but calm assistance is crucial. For instance, somebody choking on food cannot hold on till a doctor arrives. Instead, nearby people much know how to remove the hitch soon so that the suffering person can breathe. Such instant help is termed as first aid. At times, first aid can serve as an alternative for a doctor. For example, for slight cuts and wounds, cleaning the wound and applying a bandage 🩹🩹🤕 is sufficient. When there is a broken bone due to injury, first aid could be to calm the patient and reaching him to the nearest medical aid. In case of a cardiac arrest or a traffic accident, first aid may involve restarting the patient’s heart. There is a serious caution that first aid without proper knowledge could be injurious also.
