There are some skills that can save our lives or someone else’s lives in the time of need. One such skill is first aid. Every time you face an injury or any issue related to your health, you should try to do the first aid in order to prevent too much damage to the body. In this blog, Rubina Ratnakar some steps to be taken in order to perform the basic first aid.

CPR is the most important form of first aid that everyone should learn. It is capable of saving a life if done in the right way. Every person should learn how to do CPR from a medical institution or from the internet for the time of need.

The next first aid skill is to help someone who is feeling choked. Once a person is choked, he only has a few minutes before the stopped air passages start affecting his brain. The skill you need to learn in order to deal with this situation is Heimlich Maneuver.

Stopping the bleeding is another very important kind of first aid. If a person is suffering from a deep injury, he or she may bleed out a lot in 10 to 15 minutes. So, you need to stop the bleeding before you rush that person into a hospital.

Burns are another form of injury that can be very painful to deal with. There are three types of burns, first degree, second degree, and third degree. They are set on the basis of their intensity. The first-degree can be treated with the application of a topical gel, the second-degree is a bit more serious and needs the skin to be run under cold water and then perform the first-degree treatment. The third-degree burns are very serious and need to be taken to the doctor only.

There are many times when you hit your head with a wall or something. This can be an undesirable situation as well. Look for the effects after hitting your head, do you feel any headrush, are you able to see properly, or any other changes in your movements? A cold compress will help you in relaxing your head.
