We Can’t avoid disasters ! They can happen anytime ,anywhere! And unfortunately , many lose their lives every year. But Experts say if you know some apparently small,unimportant things ,your chance of reading the headlines about the disaster will increase!
If you are injured in an accident or because of anything else, do not drive yourself,
Call an ambulance!
It means do not move: sit or lie down.
If there is a foreign object inside your body like a bullet, stick, knife etc..,
never try to remove it yourself for example do not remove the knife.
slow your breathing and remain calm to avoid hyperventilating.
If you are with an injured person, pinch their nose and blow through their mouth, two seconds for each breath.
If you see blood coming from body especially chest or you hear sucking sound,
cover the wound with something and leave one side of the wound open for the air to escape while the chest is coming up for breathing again.
When the oxygen is ok,
Put steady pressure on the wound no less than 10 minutes or until help arrives. If the wound is in a limb like an arm or a leg, put it in a high level above the heart and prepare the wound for transport:
for a bullet wound pull the sides of the wound together and secure it with a tape, and for a knife keep it still ,stabilized with heavy dressing or gauze and remember that trying to block arteries from bleeding heightens the risk of amputation . It should be the last thing to do.
