First aid refers to the immediate medical assistance rendered to a person who has sustained a sudden illness or injury.
First aid is important, as having competent first aiders on hand during medical emergencies can make (and has made) the difference between life and death. Competent first aiders are trained to take control of the emergency scene and respond confidently to the casualty’s condition, thereby reducing the latter’s risk of death or permanent disability.
As well, competent first aiders can identify and minimise potential hazards and subpar emergency responses in the home and workplace. It is for this reason that first aid training is a job requirement for many Australian workers.
The importance of first aid is exemplified by its three key objectives – the ‘3 Ps’:
The number one responsibility of all first aiders is to preserve life. This involves using the DRSABCD action plan to assess the emergency scene for danger, to call Triple Zero (000) for medical intervention, to check the casualty’s breathing, to commence CPR as necessary, and to generally keep the casualty breathing until said medical intervention arrives.
In conjunction with preserving life, first aiders are responsible for maintaining the casualty’s condition by providing reassurance and by using first aid principles to treat different ailments, including seizures, open wounds, and hypothermia(among many others).
First aiders also have a third objective – to encourage the casualty’s confidence and relieve their pain, with an end to aid their recovery.
