What do you mean by First Aid?

Regardless of how careful one is, accidents tend to happen, and these accidents may result in injury. In case, this happens, it is necessary that the injured person receive immediate care. However, it is not always possible for a doctor to be present or for the person to be transported to a medical facility. In these cases, First Aid may be the difference between a minor injury and a major injury.

First Aid is basically aid that should be administered first. It is an assistance that should be provided in to any person suffering a sudden illness or injury. First Aid steps may help minimize or limit the damage until proper medical assistance can be provided. Properly administered First Aid can even help ease future recovery.

First Aid may include steps to stop bleeding, administer to cuts and bruises, salve wounds and burns, and even administer CPR in case the person is not breathing.
