Most of us come across accidents happening to others many times during our lifetime. The accidents may be on the road, work place, house or your neighborhood. Most of the times we become silent bystanders not knowing what to do. But you could be a productive manpower if you have little knowledge and show some leadership quality. Here are few tips, which you could use next time you come across such a situation. You can actually save lives by doing so and reduce the damage done to the victim.
Your main aim at this time should be to reduce further damage to victim and also protect yourself during the process in the accident zone.
PROTECT THE ACCIDENT SCENE
Many times speeding vehicles will unknowingly causes more injury to the victims on the road and people involved in rescue. If possible, send two mature, sensible individuals at least 300 feet on either side of the accident so that they can signal to traffic to slow down. If possible, these people should be wearing or waving something brightly colored, and at night they should be using torchlight. Don?t put stones of branches of trees on the road to stop traffic, this may cause more accidents.
PROTECT YOURSELF FIRST
If the accident is at night, keep your vehicle running and keep the head lights on. Keep your helmet on during the rescue operation. If you have any bright colored dress in your vehicle take them out and wear it.
DONOT REMOVE BADLY INJURED VICTIMS OUT OF THE VECHILE
If they have head, spinal or serious internal injuries, being moved by non-experts could paralyze them for life or actually kill them. You should not take out the helmet if the victim is wearing one. Don?t remove the victim from car seat or pull him/her out of the vehicle yourself. Remove the tie or belt or any other tight clothing victim is wearing as it may ease the breathing. Talk to them softly and reassure them. Wait with the victim till ambulance or police arrives. If there is spilled petrol or danger of fire starting then it is must to remove the victim from the vehicle for your safety and victims safety. In such cases more people should be utilized. Neck should be well supported during shifting. Glass pieces, protruding metals, spilled oil ect should be cleared to avoid further damage.
What First Aid should be given
3 B's -- Breathing, Bleeding, and Bones.
Maintain their airway
Check their airway: Put your hand on their forehead and gently tilt their head back.
Stopping any heavy bleeding is the second priority. If a heavily bleeding wound is a gaping hole, get somebody to give you their shirt -- obviously the cleaner and soft one, the better -- bundle it up and carefully insert it into the wound then hold it in place with a degree of pressure (remembering that you may be pressing it down on something vital). Severe bleeding can cause shock so it?s important to stop the blood if you can tourniquet, due perhaps to a victim having a nearly-severed limb, make a careful note of the time the tourniquet was applied. That time will be vital to the paramedics if the limb is to be saved paramedics if the limb is to be saved.
Conscious victims should NOT be allowed anything to eat or drink -- not even a little water -- even if they plead for it. This is hard rule to follow, but if that person needs emergency surgery it can be made more dangerous by increased stomach contents.
