Keeping The Victim Alive

First aid plays an important role if an accident/injury takes place. We have to keep in mind that first aiders are not professionals. So, in a case of serious or severe injury, their first objective is to keep the victim alive until the ambulance arrives.

Relief From Pain And Stopping Infection

We all know that the first aid box contains different kinds of ointments. Another role of first aid is to cease infection. As the first aider washes and covers, the injury with a bandage, the injured part of the body becomes safe from dirt and dust. So the chance of infection decreases. The victim also feels relieved temporarily. Obviously s/he needs further medical assistance in order to recover completely.

Preventing Drastic Health Deterioration

In a case of serious accident/injury, the first aider’s foremost priority is to prevent the drastic health deterioration of the victim, to keep s/he alive. So the first aider provides CPR (Cardiopulmonary resuscitation) etc to keep the victim alive and prevent health deterioration. 

These are the main roles of first aid. Now, let us discuss the role of first aid in different locations, different cases.

Roles Of First Aid At Sports Ground

Well, it’s needless to say that there are several chances of injuries at the sports ground. Chances are bigger in body contact games like Football, Kabaddi, or Rugby. So a first aider must be present at the sports field to provide immediate assistance if an accident happens. Players often get injured in a collision. The first aider’s main objective at a sports ground is to make the player fit enough to continue his/her game and deal with any kind of minor injuries (cut, scratch, etc). 

Roles Of First Aid At Home

Well, we are not safe at home also. Often we burn ourselves unconsciously while cooking, or we cut our fingers while cutting fruits or vegetables. Sometimes we get bit by a stray dog or a cat scratches us. In these cases, first aid comes to rescue. Bandages are needed to cease the bleeding in case of a cut, or antiseptic creams or ointments are used to heal the burn.

Roles Of First Aid At school

As there are pupils of different age groups in school, chances of injury are high enough. Kids do not want to sit quietly and try to run here and there and while doing this, sometimes hurt themselves by falling from the desk or colliding with others. In these cases, a quick medical treatment AKA the first aid is needed. Children’s injuries are often minor, so one needs to apply just the basic first aids. However, we all know what to do in the case of severe injury.

Our life has become fast enough and is getting faster day by day. We have to complete works in a tight schedule and while doing that, we often forget to take care of ourselves. At that unconscious moment, accidents happen. So first aid is a much-needed thing in any location, any time.
