First Aid: Chest Wound

Loading comments ...

In this video, you will learn to administer first aid for a chest wound.

A chest wound should always be considered serious.

- Call the emergency services immediately.

- Place the casualty in a comfortable position.

They can be encouraged to adopt a half-sitting position, if this aids breathing.

- If it is an open wound, apply a dressing using sterile gauze pads taped on 3 sides only and leaving the fourth open.

If gauze pads are not available, use clean cloth.

If there is a foreign object in the wound, do not try to remove it.

If the wound is bleeding profusely, apply pressure on the dressing to stem the flow.

Cover the casualty.
