First aid is the treatment given to an injured or unwell individual right away, before emergency medical services arrive. It may involve doing things like applying pressure to a wound or conducting CPR, or even just stabilizing a broken bone.

Burns: Exposure to fire, chemicals, or electricity can also cause burns. Water can be used to cool a burn, a sterile bandage can be used, and medical treatment should be sought for serious burns.

Choking: When anything becomes stuck in the throat and blocks the airway, that’s choking. The Heimlich technique or back blows are the first line of defense in choking emergencies.

Cuts and wounds: Various causes, such as sharp objects, falls, and accidents, can lead to cuts and wounds. When someone suffers a cut or wound, the first aid procedure is to clean the wound, apply pressure to the wound to stop the bleeding, and apply a sterile bandage.

Heart attack: When the heart’s arteries get obstructed, the heart muscle begins to die. Calling for medical assistance, giving aspirin if available, and starting cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are all essential components of first aid during a heart attack.

Poisoning: Ingestion or inhalation of poisonous chemicals can cause poisoning. In the event of a poisoning, first aid entails contacting emergency services, determining the drug (if feasible), and carrying out any additional instructions given by medical personnel.

Seizures: Epilepsy, brain traumas, and infections are just some of the many potential triggers for seizures. If a seizure lasts longer than five minutes, emergency services should be called and the victim should be kept safe from harm by removing sharp objects and relaxing any restrictive clothes.
