When First Aid Matters!

When someone becomes ill or injured, there is usually a short period of time before you can get professional medical assistance. It is that period of time that is most critical to the victim and could be a matter of life or death. You may be oblivious to the process of providing first aid to someone, until it happens to your colleague sitting next to you or your dear one at home. That is when First Aid could matter the most. Here are few basic first aid tips that can help you do the right thing at the right time.... Before that, some general instructions:

1. Keep a first aid kit at an easily accessible location at home or work. It should be accessible to all. Make sure it has the basic medicines and supplies.
2. Make sure the first aid kit along with all the medications and instruments are out of children's reach.
3. Before you begin, assess the environment. Protect yourself from blood and body fluids with a pair of gloves.
