I am a volunteer First Aider. I am not a health care professional. I am trained to deal with what I can see, and get my patient the help they need as soon as possible. I am not a paramedic or a doctor. I am not qualified to diagnose underlying problems.
Just because I have responded in a certain way to a certain set of symptoms, this does not mean my actions suit every problem with those symptoms. They might not even be the best treatment for the actual problem seen. No treatment, discussion, entry or any other content on this website should be used as a guide to First Aid. No blog is a replacement for proper First Aid training. I accept no responsibility for the consequences of anyone reproducing any techniques described on this blog.
I strongly recommend you regularly attend at least a basic First Aid course. Information about courses can be found on the following websites, among others:
