If the patient's condition is critical, specialized doctors are called in to care for the patient.
CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)
CPR is a temporary measure that can be used to keep blood flowing to the brain, heart, and other essential organs until experienced medical experts can administer more sophisticated care. It entails a sequence of chest compressions and rescue breathing.
CPR is particularly successful when administered as quickly as feasible after an accident (within minutes) and when skilled medical personnel arrives within 8 to 12 minutes of the incident.
Taking care of blood loss
Direct pressure applied to the bleeding can stop practically any type of bleeding. This is the most critical first aid to administer. To avoid infection, always wash your hands before (and after) administering first aid to someone who is bleeding. Elevate the bleeding location and place the person on flat ground (arm, leg). Following that, use pressure to stop the flow of blood.
For severe bleeding
Seek medical attention and take precautions to avoid shock.
Make the wounded body portion immobile. Place the person on their back, lift their feet about 12 inches, and cover them with a coat or blanket.
Taking care of broken bones
If the skin is broken, it must be treated right away to avoid infection.
If feasible, lightly clean the wound to eliminate apparent debris or pollution, but do not scrape or flush the wound excessively. Immobilize the shattered bone using a splint or sling if necessary. Protect the area above and below the injured bone by immobilizing it. Ice packs can be used to alleviate pain and swelling. However, ice should not be applied directly to the wound.
