First aid is the provision of initial care for an illness or injury. It is usually performed by non-expert, but trained personnel to a sick or injured person. The key aims of first aid can be summarized in three key points: preserve life, prevent further harm, promote treatment.
First aid training also involves the prevention of initial injury and responder safety, and the treatment phases.
Though out life, we will be faced with injuries of every kind; whether it is a simple paper cut or a severe chemical burn, every accident must be dealt with in the right way.
