Rendering first aid should never be undertaken lightly. Remember:
- First - do no harm
- If in doubt - don’t
- Always seek professional assistance
- Always seek permission to assist unless the casualty is unconscious
- Be aware of your limitations
Expert medical assistance should always be sought wherever possible, and as soon as possible, in any situation requiring first aid.
