Immediate first aid can save a person's life or prevent injury.
First aid is the medical help given to an injured or sick person before doctor arrives.
While giving first aid, be calm and make the injured or sick person comfortable. Make him lie down. Do not panic after an accident. Common emergencies which need first aid are minor cuts, fainting, insect/Snake bite, burning etc.
1. FOR MINIOR CUTS
First wash the cut with water. Then apply an antiseptic lotion over it. Tie a bandage on the cut.
2. IF A PERSON FAINTS
If a person faints, make him lie down with his head at a level lower than the body. This helps the blood to reach his brain faster. Allow fresh air around the person. Let the person rest quietly.
3. FOR BURNS
If a burn is minor, wash the burnt area with cold running water. Put an ice pack on the burnt area. Apply an antiseptic cream on the affected area.
