First Aid Medical Care


Shock is a life-threatening condition that develops when the organs of the body are not getting enough oxygen and blood. This can permanently damage internal organs and even result in death. The objectives of first aid care are to treat any apparent cause of shock, maintain a normal body temperature, and immediately get emergency medical help.


  • Call 911
  • Lay the victim down.
  • Control severe bleeding.
  • Calm and reassure the victim.
  • Maintain body temperature by covering the body.

Bleeding Control And Bandaging


Pressure Bandage

Apply a pressure bandage with rolled gauze if you can't hold pressure on the wound. Starting furthest from the heart, wrap once to anchor the bandage, then wrap in a spiral over the wound. Wrap back and forth over the wound, twisting the bandage each time.

Bleeding Control

Use Tourniquet:

You can use a tourniquet to stop the bleeding when direct pressure cannot control severe bleeding from the leg or an arm. A tourniquet is a constricting device used on the leg or an arm that applies pressure to the walls of blood vessels to stop bleeding.

Heart Attack

Coronary artery ailment develops when cholesterol and fat, attach to the walls of the coronary arteries, causing these to narrow. A heart attack occurs when a clot blocks a narrowed coronary artery, depriving the heart muscle of oxygen. The heart attack victim feels uneasiness as the heart muscle is dying. The symptoms of a heart attack typically happen unexpectedly. These might come-and-go and occur in any combination.


  • Call 911. Do not drive the victim to the hospital yourself.
  • Calm and reassure the victim.
  • Position the victim in a comfortable position, typically sitting up position. Loosen tight clothing.
  • Help the victim take any prescribed chest pain medicine, for example, nitroglycerin.

Avoid delay in calling 911:

Heart attack is the main cause of SCA (sudden cardiac arrest). Quick detection and response to early symptoms of heart attack is very important. Clot-busting medication, which is provided in the hospital, is most effective during the early hours of a heart attack. The sooner a heart attack victim gets medical care, the less damage to the heart and the improved the chance of survival.
