2.2. FIRST AID
Legislation requires an employer to protect an employee’s health and safety under the Occupational Health and Safety. First aid is based on proven techniques of treatment in the event of a sudden injury or illness. The first-aider renders the correct treatment with whatever materials are available at the time and aims to stabilize the casualty until medical help becomes available.
2.2.1. LEGAL ASPECT OF FIRST AID
- Never apply first aid other that what you have been trained for.
- Your treatment must match your competency and level of training
- Always ask your casualty’s consent before starting treatment
- If the casualty is a minor or mentally ill, permission to treat must be given either by the parents, guardian or a member of the family. But this may be overruled in an emergency situation where the child’s life depends on quick action.
- Where there is no time to explain and get consent, or the casualty is unable to talk due to head injury or is unconscious, implied consent is used (you do not need to ask for consent).
2.2.2. ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION (AR) AND CPR
Artificial Respiration (mouth to mouth ventilation) is when one blows air from his own lungs into the lungs of someone who is unable to breathe air himself.
Direct method of AR:
- Check safety of the scene. Try to talk to the casualty, if no response, attract some one’s attention to assist you.
- Open air way, look, listen and feel for the breath.
- Check carotid pulse (at the neck)
- If no breathing and pulse, get some one to call for an ambulance.
- Ventilate twice: make a good seal and make sure the chest rises with each breath
- Find a correct land mark for chest compression. Compress hard and fast 30 times.
- Ventilate twice again. Start procedure again.
- After two cycles, check the pulse and breathing again.
- If there is a pulse but no breathing, continue ventilation at a rate of one ventilation every 5th second until casualty start s to breath by himself/herself.
2.2.3. TREATMENT FOR WOUNDS
- Wear gloves
- Bleeding can be stopped by using direct pressure on the wound itself.
- In severe cases, indirect pressure can be used to stop bleeding.
- If casualty shows sign of shock, and injuries permit, lays him on his back and raise the legs about 30cm to facilitate blood flow to the vital organs.
- Place a clean dressing on the wound to cover the edges of the wound.
- Secure the dressing with a bandage to cover the edges of the dressing.
