Basic First Aid
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     You cut your finger. Your friend is stung by a bee. Life is full of bites and scrapes. Do you need to go to the hospital? Probably not. Most minor injuries can be taken care of with a little first aid.
 
2     First aid is the care given to a minor injury. Just about anyone can give basic first aid. You don't need any formal training. Just follow some important steps.
 
3     Always remain calm. Try to keep the injured person calm, also. Decide if the injury can be handled with basic first aid. If it is serious, send or call for help right away.
 
4     If the injury is a bee sting, you can take care of this easily. First, remove the stinger. Scrape it with your fingernail or the edge of a credit card. Don't pull it out with tweezers. This will cause it to release more venom. Wash the area with soap and water. Apply ice to reduce the swelling. Apply a first aid cream.
