Around 50% percent of cases can be saved if first-aid used. Lt. Gen Malik briefed the participants regarding different processes in first-aid. First step is to remove all the obstacles around the victim, then ask from victim if he can hear him. One can remove foreign substance from the mouth of victim and try to hear and feel the breath coming out from victims mouth. If victim is not breathing than apply Cardio – Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) technique. Lt. Gen Malik also discussed about the Respiratory and Circulation System, Choking, Loss of Consciousness, Shock, Bleeding (internal and external bleeding), Drowning etc.
