Series Summary

The term first aid refers to the immediate care that is provided to an injured or sick person. It is used to stabilize a patient until further medical treatment and assessment can be provided at a hospital or care facility. For most of us, a first-aid kit is used primarily to treat minor medical emergencies, like small cuts or burns. But it is important to keep a first aid kit stocked with supplies you use regularly as well as those items you might use for a more serious situation until EMS can help. In addition to a first aid kit, knowing what to do in emergency situations is a key part of treating injuries. Knowledge of how to roll an injured person to safety or help a person having an epileptic seizure may not be included in a first-aid kit, but might just save a life. In this free first-aid series, learn how to handle a variety of emergency situations, such as dog bites, snake bites and even life-threatening injuries. Even learn how to prevent injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. This series also includes useful advice on surviving natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods.
