Welcome to FirstAid4Free

Welcome to my first aid site. I'm a first aid trainer and assessor. I've been teaching first aid for about 10 years now. Everyone should have some first aid knowledge for in the home and work place. Not everyone has the chance to attend a full first aid course so I'll provide some key first aid points every week.

Important Notice

The information on this site is for guidance only. The first aid procedures are those in the current edition of the First Aid Manual at the time of inclusion on the site. Attendance on a first aid course to practice these procedures is always recommended.

Adult Basic Life Support

Adult Basic Life Support:
If you find a casualty who is not breathing you need to breathe for them by giving them Rescue Breaths. If they show no signs of life (no obvious signs of circulation) you also need to give them Chest Compressions. Chest Compressions are vital for pumping oxygenated blood around the casualty's body - particularly to their brain and other vital organs.

This is summarised in the flow chart above (click image to enlarge).
