No matter how hard you try to avoid them, accidents happen. Even the luckiest of persons is bound to encounter an incident requiring emergency treatment at least once in their life. In fact, more people around the world die from lack of access to proper first aid than from cancer. Through public awareness of first aid, a lot of these lives can be saved.

First aid is the initial assistance given to a victim after a medical emergency and the person who gives first aid is called a First Responder. With a few simple basic first aid techniques, you can buy some extra time for a seriously injured patient. This can often be the difference between life and death.

Basic first aid can range from treating a burn wound to providing Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in case of cardiac arrest. Some of the major benefits of  knowing Basics of First Aid, AED and CPR are:

  • Equipping one with the knowledge to help others in case of a medical emergency: Be it a day-to-day medical emergencies like choking, severe emergencies like heart attack and cardiac arrest, or responding to a natural disaster, a person knowledgeable in first aid becomes more than just another bystander.
  • Implementing the right techniques at the right time: In case of serious medical emergencies, where the person is unconscious, not breathing or having severe blood loss, the victim’s brain will begin to die at the rate of 7-10% of brain capacity per minute. Responding quickly to buy some extra time for the victim is really important and first aid equips a person with ample information on what to do, how to do it and most importantly, what not to do in the case of an emergency.

Many corporates have doctors and paramedics available at their premises but this is not enough. They should also endeavour to ensure that at least 1 out 10 persons is capable of responding to a medical emergency through occasional in-house First Responder training. This number increases in case of high-risk environments as such as factories, machine shops and industrial plants.

Accidents are unavoidable but their outcomes can be improved through proper training. If  first aid is not provided on time, a simple injury can turn severe and even lead to a fatality.  Many fatalities resulting from accidents and emergency situations result from lack of immediate medical treatment. First aid doesn’t just facilitate recovery, it helps save lives.

In the American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) certified First Responder program, a participant learns different first aid techniques and how to respond in case of a medical emergency encountered at home, office, road or anywhere else.
