1.Person in shock

If somebody is in shock you need to get them to lie down and elevate their legs just slightly. This makes blood move to their brain as it is caused by the blood circulation being affected and you need to make sure that it gets to the vital organs more than their legs. Keep them calm, undo any tight clothing, and wait for help to arrive.

2.Drowning

If somebody has been in the water and are drowning, then you need to try to get that water out of their body as quickly as possible. If they are not breathing you will need to do CPR on them, so make sure they are on their back and be ready to react fast if they start to breathe and they choke on the water in their lungs. Get professional medical help immediately.

3.Snakebite

If somebody has been bitten by a snake, then the first thing you need to do is to call for help. Next, immobilize the limb as this can stop, or at least slow down, the spread of the poison in the body.

6.Severe bleeding

If a person is bleeding you need to try your best to stop the flow of blood.

10.CPR

If the person has stopped breathing, then you need to start CPR. This involves putting both hands on their chest and pushing down twice within a second. Tilt their head back, pinch their nose, and breathe into their mouth until you see their chest rise as this is inflating their lungs. Then check their pulse and repeat.

If somebody is having a fit always call for help immediately unless you have experience with this. The main thing is to move any objects that they could hurt themselves on and try to protect their head with a cushion to prevent them banging it on the floor and causing problems.
