The first aid is the initial assistance provided to the injured person at the place of the accident. The care is comprised of on time undertaking careful procedures, measures and activities in order to preserve life, to protect from further injuries, to reduce the pain and fear, to prevent possible complications and to improve the condition of the injured persons. The care lasts from the moment of the detection of the injured person until the moment when the person does not require first aid or until the person is taken care of by qualified health care providers.
