Time Narration
00:01 Many of you are familiar with this scene in your village- a group of children playing in an open area.
00:09 Watch this boy who is chasing the ball.
00:12 He enters the nearby bushy area.
00:16 He spots a snake.
00:18 In no time, it crawls out of its hideout.
00:21 The scared boy tries to shoo away the snake by throwing a stone.
00:26 The snake does not crawl away.
00:29 Instead it turns towards the boy and bites him on the foot.
00:34 The boy screams for help.
00:36 His friends run to his side to help.
00:39 They see two red spots on the foot.
00:42 They carry the boy out of the bush.
00:45 There is a commotion.
00:47 All the children give different opinions about first aid.
00:52 Here comes the importance of knowing the first aid in case of a snake bite.
00:57 Welcome to the spoken tutorial on First Aid on Snake Bites.
01:02 In this tutorial, we will see:
01:04 How important is first aid and
01:07 How to give the correct first aid in case of a snake bite.
01:11 Before moving on to the first aid instructions,
01:15 we will review what the group of boys did to save their friend.
01:20 They made the boy lie down.
01:22 And then they sought the help of elders to shift him to the hospital.
01:28 Then they tied a cloth above the wound.
01:32 Was it the right first aid?
01:35 Yes! In a way it is correct.
01:39 In this case, the hospital was not far away.
01:42 So, the boy got the medical aid in time.
01:46 The correct way to give first aid in case of a snake bite is:
01:51 Make the person lie down on a flat surface.
01:55 Roll a cloth on the affected area.
01:59 The primary purpose of this first aid is to stop the poison from circulating throughout the body.
02:07 And how should we roll the cloth around the wound?
02:10 Start rolling from the upper portion of the leg and move downwards.
02:15 Shift the person quickly to the nearest hospital for further treatment.
02:20 In this way, first aid given in time prevents many damages.
02:26 Remember, wrong first aid can make one’s condition worse.
02:32 Do’s in case of a snake bite:
02:34 First, lay the victim down.
02:37 When you roll the cloth apply some pressure.
02:41 And the Don’ts in case of a snake bite:
02:44 Do not cut the skin or the flesh around the bite.
02:49 Do not put ice on or around the bite.
02:52 Do not shock the person with electricity.
02:56 Do not try to suck the blood or the venom out of the bite and
03:01 Do not tie the cloth too tight. This could lead to gangrene.
