CATASTROPHIC BLEEDING
If the bleeding isn’t controlled quickly, they may lose a lot of blood, become unresponsive and possibly develop shock. Shock does not mean emotional shock; it is a life-threatening condition, often caused by loss of blood.

How to treat severe bleeding:

  1. Apply direct pressure to the wound.
  2. Call 999 for emergency help, Medic or ambulance
  3. Secure dressing with a bandage to maintain pressure.
  4. Treat for shock.
  5. Support the injury.

Your priority is to stop the bleeding.

CHOKING
Stand behind them and slightly to one side. Support their chest with 1 hand. Lean them forward so the object blocking their airway will come out of their mouth, rather than moving further down. Give up to 5 sharp blows between their shoulder blades with the heel of your hand.
 
DEFIB (AED)  
Using a defibrillator before an ambulance arrives can significantly increase someone’s chance of survival. Learn what to do by booking one of our first aid courses and learning a lifelong skill to save a life.
 
ANAPHYLAXIS
