First aid is the first and immediate assistance given to any person suffering from either a minor or serious illness or injury, with care provided to preserve life, prevent the condition from worsening, or to promote recovery. It includes initial intervention in a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation .

      FIRST AID FOR OPEN WOUNDS. If the wound is in an inconspicuous location, is not deep, and gapes slightly, the first-aider may find that he need only hold the wound edges together and dress and bandage the injury. At times, however, it may be difficult for the first-aider to decide whether a wound needs medical care. First aid providers are advised to consider using a tourniquet if other means have not stopped the severe external limb bleeding. Tourniquets are also recommended as a first-line response such as “during a mass casualty incident, with a person who has multi system trauma, in an unsafe environment, or with a wound that cannot be accessed.”.
