First Aid

Parent Category: Health
First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury. It is usually performed by a lay person to a sick or injured casualty until definitive medical treatment can be accessed.
You should use CPR if a person is not breathing (place your ear  nearly to their nose/mouth, and look, listen, feel for warmth) and  has no pulse (using you pointer finger, feel along the side of the  neck for a carotid pulse).
A CPR Course is usually just referred to as the former. Most basic  health classes will also touch on Cardio-Pulmonary  Resuscitation(CPR) and the use of defibrillators.
It could have been him hurting himself on a foreign object before,  and also it could be fungus. Search the answers at medline.
The American Red Cross offers many different types of training. Inparticular, the Standard First Aid and CPR courses are paidtraining which means you do have to pay a fee to take this course.
Give 30 compressions, then 2 breaths. Repeat cycles of compressions and breaths.Give compressions at a rate of 100 compression per min.
First Aid is responding to an emergency situation - heart attacks, bleeding, drowning, choking, poisoning, electrocution, spinal injuries, eye injuries and scalds and burns are typical situations where having a basic knowledge of what to do- knowing proper first aid procedures- you can be the hero....
what you should do is if you aren't near your car you should stay  off that foot and go to the doctor. Other then that stay off the  foot and wrap it with like sports wrapping. I had to once.
A second degree burn (as it's most commonly called) is also what is  called Partial-thickness burns to EMS personnel.

  == snake bite ==   I have heard that if the person sucking the blood has a cavity or a cut, the poison can hurt them. Otherwise, as long as they don't swallow, they are fine.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is a lifesaving technique  useful in many emergencies, including heart attack or near  drowning, in which someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
Call Your emergency number of your country. Move the patient to fresh air and administer oxygen, if trained to do so. If possible locate the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) of the material inhaled. Keep the patient calm and warm until help arrives. Give thr patient water.
You should run it under cold water and put neosporin on it and go  to a doctor so it doesn't get infected!
Listen for breathing sounds coming out of the mouth and nose. Look for other body movements down the long axis of the body. Note skin color as well for an additional indicator. Look, listen and feel are the key points.
Make sure everyone is clear of the patient.
well don't peel it
Use a bag valve mask (BVM) to minimize possible bloodborne exposure. Using the BVM will allow the use of a mask on the face to minimize airborne exposure.
It is a very good idea that an AED be in a first response box. Itis becoming more and more common in Canada and the United States tohave them in public places such as a gym, pools, etc.
The sound doesn't necessarily change, but it may become delayed  from when the sound first was started, and the sound may become  softer than up close.   An example of this would be someone kicking a ball and you not  being able to hear it until about 2 seconds after it happens. it  all has...
1: Am I alive?  2: What is my injury?  3: How will I get to the hospital if I am severely injured?  4: Can I still breath?  5: (most important) What will my family say?!  (I know these are stupid but I hope that they help) 
An ice pack or gel pack is a plastic sac of ice, refrigerant gel or liquid, or, in an emergency, even frozen vegetables. The refrigerant, usually non-toxic, can absorb a considerable amount of heat, since its enthalpy of fusion is high. It is commonly used as a cold compress to alleviate the pain of...
Assuming the first aid provider knows how to give ventilations, if they don't go in re-position the head and try to ventilate again. If breaths still don't go in, perform unconscious choking technique. It depends on the reason: if the mouth has sustained trauma (i.e. if it is bleeding), breaths can...

A wound due to a gunshot may cause death by one of three means- First, disrupting the Central Nervous system so that control over breathing and circulation is stopped.

Unless you're a doctor, none. Administering medications can be a very dangerous thing. Get first aid training and find out your local protocols.

Probably by taking a class. i learned by taking a baby-sitters class but really by any professional esp. by the red cross or something like that.

Probably means that you sprained your ankle. Or twisted it.Don't move it too much, and put some ointment onto it.Get well soon!
As you administer each rescue breath look at their chest as you breathe in. You should see the chest rise if properly done. Remember to do a head-tilt-chin-lift if you do not suspect a head, neck or spinal injury and firmly pinch the nose closed. Breathe in only enough air to make the chest start to...

  Rubbing alcohol can be applied directly to the skin, or it can be used to soak a pad, which is then applied to the skin. Either way, the rubbing alcohol cools the skin as it evaporates.   That said, using small applications of rubbing alcohol to cool the skin will probably not be sufficient...

Yes. If you are in a situation where an adhesive bandage, ACE bandage, or some other form of First Aid bandage is available, you can always tie it on with a sock/other article of clothing, or use tape. If you use tape, be sure not to tape the skin.

To sprain an ankle easily at home can be quite the task if you are athletic, but I have a hunch you aren't. The key is to step on a firm enough object to support your...
By pushing in the middle of the chest, you can circulate oxygenatedblood through the body of someone in cardiac arrest. This keeps thebrain and other organs alive until the heart can be restarted witha defibrillator. Thus CCP is too low for the chest compressions toproduce adequate blood flow.

Immediately after a shock, you will wait to follow the next instruction from the AED. After a shock, it will either immediately analyze again and possibly shock again, or direct you to check the patient for a pulse, and if none resume CPR.
note the color of discharge, the quantity, quality and smell and any other description.
