COMPRESSION
: Wrap a compression bandage around the injured area. This will help to support it and reduce the movement.
ELEVATION
: raise the injured area above the level of the patient's heart.
RICE

Drink plenty of fluids to rehydrate the body
and warm drinks if the cramp is caused by cold
cold drinks if the cramp is caused by heat
FRACTURES:

-
swelling
-
sound of bones popping
How to
manage
:
1)Tell the patient NOT to move.

3)Administer oxygen
4) A qualified person may administer analgesic gas for pain relief.
Thanks for your attention and

PLEASE TRY NOT TO BE SICK
Immobilize the limb in the position you found it. Do not attempt to reposition the dislocated joint.
Check for signs of circulation under the dislocated joint.
Treat for shock where appropriate.
Administer oxygen
A qualified person may also administer analgesic gas for pain relief
DISLOCATIONS
: an injury in which a bone is moved from it's normal position. A dislocation can cause considerable pain.
Sign and symptoms
may be:
-
Loss of function
-
Swelling

Management

of a dislocation:
Closed
Open
If there is absence of circulation it's a medical emergency.
Don't move the patient until the joint has been immobilized.
