They are not going to have access to gear or knowledge of meds that we have. They sound like they want the basic know how to have more time for help to arrive. Just basic first aid.... B before P.

I would recommend keeping Vaseline gauze in any kit. It makes a good occlusive dressing. It keeps dirt out and doesn't rip. paramedics in my area are now trained to put Vaseline gauze dressing on it and get them to the hospital. Plus it also works as a fire starter in a pinch. The three sided dressing was a good theory but doesn't keep the wound clean and doesn't work as a 1 way valve in the real world.

That's all we can achieve here , buying him or her a chance ! That's all we can do and sometimes , it's enough for this person to make it! Buy them as much time as possible which is by far better than panic or doing nothing.

On the ugly side of things , how many people died from a simple OD because the other people involved had no idea what to do ?

A little training and a whole lot of common sense can make all the difference in the world.

When putting all scenarios in what "COULD" go wrong can help putting together a simple "First-aid Kit " together. You don't need a PHD. to save a life , just neves of steel with common sense.!

I just completed my first aid, cpr, blood born pathogens, etc refresher course. Been doing this 15 years or so. Folks, doing this can save a friend or family member, or even yourself. Why not?

Giving medical advice over a forum is worse than giving legal advice.

If your interested go take first aid and advanced first aid etc. Most of these courses are usually taught with little to no fees.

But this is locked because it can get people killed. If you dont have training, get some. In any case use 911 services

You are under no duty to render aid to anyone beyound calling for emergency services as a minimum.
