What is First Aid?

First aid is the initial care given to an injured or ill person by a non-expert but trained individual before medical help arrives or before the victim can be brought to a medical facility. However, some self-limiting illnesses or minor injuries may not require further medical care after effective first aid intervention. First aid generally consists of a series of simple techniques, sometimes potentially life-saving interventions, that an individual can be trained to perform with minimal equipment.  It aims to preserve life, prevent further harm and promote recovery. A first aid provider is someone with formal First Aid Training or education in emergency care or medicine who provides assessments and interventions which should be medically sound and based on scientific evidence or on expert consensus. An important component of first aid administration is that it must not delay activation of the emergency medical services (EMS) system or other medical assistance when required. First Aid Training involves learning basic skills needed to save a life or prevent an injury or illness from getting worse. These skills include the ABCs of first aid, which stands for Airway, Breathing and Circulation.

Why Train for First Aid?

First Aid Training should be universal – everyone can learn first aid and everyone should be given education in first aid. Some basic principles of first aid, such as applying a bandage or direct pressure on a bleeding part of the body are often acquired through ordinary life experiences. However, to providing effective, life-saving first aid interventions require special training. First Aid Training is useful for one to be able to recognize emergencies and act fast without panicking. It gives an individual sufficient confidence and skills to help a person maintain breathing and circulation before definite medical treatment is given. It also increases one’s alertness to keep himself and the victim away from potential harm. One area where First Aid Training is important is where it relates to potentially fatal circumstances that require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). After attending a course, one is awarded a certificate of training.  Procedures and protocols usually change based on updated clinical knowledge, and to maintain one’s skills, one is often encouraged to attend regular refresher courses and re-certification is often necessary.
