First Aid is the temporary help given to an injured or sick person before the professional medical help is provided.
1)      Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR): It is a very useful and most important technique in many medical emergencies.
In order to treat first degree burns, remove patient from heat source and also remove the burnt clothes. As a medical student, I once visited a burn unit in our hospital and came across a case of 3rd degree burn. 4)      Fainting: Fainting occurs when blood supply to your brain is momentarily insufficient.
5)      Bone Fractures: Few years back, my mother fractured her fibula as a result of an accidental fall from the ladder because she was getting rid of the spider webs anchored to the roof corners. 7)      Nosebleeds: For managing emergency nosebleeds, it is usually recommended that pinching your nose and holding your head back is vital. 8)      Poisoning: Common signs and symptoms of poisons include burns and redness around mouth and lips, vomiting, difficulty in breathing, sleepiness and confusion.
9)      Snakebites: According to report in a section of press few months back, a twenty year old student of Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS) Jamshoro was bitten by a snake while she was sleeping in her hostel room. 10)   Toothache: Toothache is often more common in children because they are habitual of eating a lot of sweet foods, the bacterial decomposition of which changes them to acids which corrode away the enamel layer and so toothache occurs.

She was not given any snakebite first aid and was taken to different hospitals in Jamshoro, Hyderabad and Karachi which caused enough delay in her proper treatment.  She died because she developed a clotting disorder that led her to bleed profusely. Therefore, it is necessary to know the first aid for snake bites so that some help can be administered on the spot before the victim is taken to the hospital.
