It is important not to make mistakes.
Experts in the field of intensive care called 5 things that are in any case not to do when providing first aid. Information about this can save someone’s life.
The time from development of symptoms or threat of injury to arrival of ambulance crews for some people is critical. If they don’t help, they just might not live to see contact with a coach or you arrive at the hospital. That’s why it’s so important to have the skills of first aid, but it is even more important not to make mistakes that may cost human life.
One of the most common mistakes while assisting victims of trauma is to attempt to raise them, to lift or move. In any case, do not do this if you 100% do not believe that injured people are not faced with a broken spine or neck. In this case, the attempt it somewhere move can lead to irreparable damage, including paralysis for the rest of my life. Do not touch patient and wait for the arrival of the doctors who fix the body of the victim, and then move him to the ambulance.
If you see that a person is impaled with some object like a branch or piece of iron, and out of the body slowly oozing blood, in any case, do not attempt to extract the subject. Thereby you will cause rapid bleeding and a quick death from shock. Practice shows that such patients are brought to hospitals with foreign objects, connect to drip with blood, and then very slowly and carefully carrying out operations that last for hours! Haste in this case is deadly.
If you suspect a cardiac arrest do not attempt to conduct CPR, if you are not sure how to implement it. Instead, perform chest compressions, gently pressing down on the chest at regular intervals. Do not attempt to RUB the victim of frostbite with snow, if you don’t want to kill him or provoke subsequent amputation of limbs. Move victim into a warm room, carefully wrap up, give some hot drinks or soup and call the doctor.
Finally, the last and most common mistake is arbitrary, the results of any powerful drug or the carrying out of injections for people faced with severe, life-threatening ailments. You are not a doctor and can not know what is happening and what medication he needs. Provide immediate transportation to a medical facility, where he was quickly diagnosed and begin CPR.
