Head trauma first aid
Head trauma usually happens when the victim falls or gets into an accident. This kind of injury is very serious because it can affect the brain, the part of the body that controls all the other systems of the body. If you experience any trauma to the head, remember:
- DO NOT move the victim if he/she has lost consciousness or possibly has spine and neck injuries.
- DO put pressure on wounds that are bleeding. Use a clean cloth, bandage, or gauze. However, if a fracture is on the skull is suspected, press lightly.
- DO monitor changes in breathing and consciousness.
- DO start CPR if victim stops breathing, has no pulse, or is unconscious.
