First aid can include cleaning minor cuts, scrapes, or scratches; treating a minor burn; applying bandages and dressings; the use of non-prescription medicine; draining blisters; removing debris from the eyes; massage; and drinking fluids to relieve heat stress OSHA.

First Aid Choking

Choking

Choking can occur when a solid or small object enters a narrowed part of the airway and becomes stuck. On inhalation, the object can be drawn in tighter and block air from entering the lungs A forceful thrust beneath ribs and up into the diaphragm can pressurize the air in the chest and pop obstruction out Compression of the chest over the breastbone can also create enough pressure to expel an object.

Bleeding

Bleeding

Bleeding reduces the amount of oxygen that can be delivered to the body. If heavy or uncontrolled, bleeding can quickly become life-threatening. Pressure applied directly to a bleeding site until bleeding stops is the standard method for controlling external bleeding. Activate EMS immediately for any heavy bleeding. Bleeding can expose you to potentially infectious body fluids.

Allergic Reaction
