First Aid Advice

Thursday, October 1st, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

What’s your first aid IQ? I know mine was fairly low before I came to this site and learned all about first aid. I remember being taught this stuff when I was a little kid – but I must have stuck all the information into my short term memory because I couldn’t remember half of what I was supposed to do! I figured if I needed a refresher then I could share this site with you all too!

The site is divided into nine different sections, they are:

Life Saving Procedures – if more people knew these procedures then a lot of lives could be saved. Use this section to brush up your memory on what to do to help save a life – you’ll find information on CPR, the recovery position, and choking. Here you will learn the ABC’s of first aid – a handy way to remember what you should check for first. This section was a must read for me!

Heart Attacks and Shock – this section not only covers heart attacks and shock, but also severe allergic reactions. Did you know that the symptoms of a heart attack differ for men and women? They list the symptoms all together and I think that is wise – if you know all the symptoms you are more likely to be able to save a life!

Other Medical Emergencies – this section covers hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Each one requires vastly different treatment, to learn about the differences check out this section.

Wounds and Bleeding – this section covers bleeding (the different types), nosebleeds and their treatment, as well as, foreign objects in the eye.

Fractures – this is a very practical section to read, because chances are you’re going to run across a fracture in your lifetime. For example, my roommate has fallen twice and caught herself with her knuckles and received a boxer’s fracture for her efforts.

Head Injuries and Seizures – this section is also a very practical read. It can be very scary to see someone have a seizure the first time, especially if you are uncertain of what to do. This section also covers the different types of head injuries and the treatment they should receive.

Effects of Heat and Cold – this is one topic that I’ve always been up to date on. I’ve been extremely sensitive to the heat and cold all of my life whether I’m getting sun burnt or heat exhaustion or being in the unfortunate position of having the car break down in the middle of winter with no help for hours. This section is a very good read for symptoms of the heat and cold we face in our environment.

Breathing Problems – asthma can also be very scary to face the first time, check out the symptoms and treatment here. This section also covers hyperventilation.

Poisoning – this has to be one of the scariest things for parents to face, having to worry what their three year olds are sticking in their mouths. But there are many types of poisoning: swallowed poisons, drug poisoning, food poisoning, poisonous plants and fungi, alcohol poisoning, and insect stings. See there’s a lot to cover!

This is an excellent site to help refresh your knowledge of first aid, but don’t forget it isn’t a replacement for real first aid training. You can often find first aid classes offered around your town so don’t be afraid to go to one!
