First Aid

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 often includes initial intervention in a serious condition prior to professional medical help being available, such as performing CPR while waiting for an ambulance, as well as the complete treatment of minor conditions, such as applying a plaster to a cut. First aid is generally performed by someone with basic medical training.
