Basic First Aid Class
First Aid is an immediate and temporary help and care given to a wounded person
or victim of an accident before the arrival of advanced medical care.
The main aim is of first aid is to try to save the precious life of wounded person.
The Five basic Objectives in First Aid are -
(a) To preserve life
(b) To prevent the condition from worsening
(c) To alleviate pain and suffering
(d) To promote recovery
(e) To procure early medical aid
There are three aims and objectives of first aid referred to as ‘the Three Ps of first aid.’
(a) Preserve life:
Trying to preserve life is always the first and overall aim of administering first aid.
This also includes preserving the life of the person giving the first aid.
(b) Prevent worsening or deterioration of the situation:
The second aim of first aid is to avoid further worsening or degradation of the condition of a casualty.
This also includes making the area surrounding the patient safe by removing the dangers around, keeping the patient in a more secure environment or position and calling for immediate specialist help.
(c) Promote recovery:
The final aim of first aid is to promote recovery of the victim.
First aid, when given to a patient before professional medical help arrives, significantly promotes
the long-term recovery of a condition or injury.
Promoting recovery is also achieved by arranging for immediate emergency professional care.
