First Aid Introduction  
   

Unintentional injury is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States.  There are 37 million emergency room visits per year.  This number is absolutely staggering, and means that 1 out of 7 people will sustain injury requiring medical intervention.  The need for people with first aid skills is absolutely critical in decreasing the permanent damage or death to the victim.

According to government statistics, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death in children from age of 1 to 21.  More than 200,000 children are injured on the playground and require a trip to the emergency room.  Several other common examples of unintentional injuries that might require first aid intervention by a trained and certified person: 

  • Motor vehicle and bicycle accidents
  • Home or Work Place Violence
  • Falls
  • Strokes
  • Fire and Poisoning
