What are the 5 principles of first aid?

The five principles of first aid are:

  1. Preserve Life: The primary goal of first aid is to save lives. Responders should prioritize actions that protect and sustain the life of the casualty.
  2. Prevent Further Injury: First aid aims to prevent the casualty’s condition from worsening. Responders must take measures to minimize additional harm or complications.
  3. Promote Recovery: Providing first aid assistance that supports the casualty’s recovery process is essential. This may include administering appropriate treatments and creating a safe environment.
  4. Protect the Unconscious: When dealing with unconscious casualties, responders must ensure their safety and maintain an open airway to allow for breathing.
  5. Seek Professional Help: While first aid can be crucial in stabilizing a casualty, it is not a substitute for professional medical care. Seeking medical assistance promptly is vital for comprehensive treatment and evaluation.
