What is first aid

The first response to a medical Emergency ,illness or injury and you need to know more about them also called an emergency care given to to a injured or ill person not all situation will be life or death and can also mean difference between a full or partial recovery and or life and death.

How to perform First Aid 100%
I would say it depends on the situation or a condition a person is in , because sometimes a person only have a broken bone needed to be fixed and for a person who know nothing about First Aid will be furious and panic and tend to make things harder than they shouldn’t be

you need to have a bandage to try and rap the broken bone sometimes you won’t be able to see it because we got different fractures e, g Open and Close meaning between these two the is a broken bone which you might see like literally and the other one is so close you won’t be seeing the broken bone until you see it swelling ,but for me the most dangerous is the close fracture because you can’t see anything but a person is busy complaining most about how he/she can’t feel the foot or the arm .

Some cases you will find a person who is struggling to breath and there you need to perform CPR meaning you are to help a person to breath using mouth to mouth to open the Airway to be able to breath not a broken arm person need that we only need it when the person is not moving neither breathing because some are struggling to breath because some is choking them.

What is a CPR

This is one of the process that a person should do when a person has drown , failing to breath you need to close the noses and mouth to mouth three times trying open the airways and pump the chest 10 times, until the person start to breath again, but not every situation needs a CPR because you might be trying to help a person only to find out that a person had a sweet or a carrot stuck to the throat before that person collapse so you need to check in the mouth before performing CPR because you will think that you are helping but killing a person.
