Broken Bones Aid

If you suspect that a person has broken a leg, do not move him or her unless there is an immediate danger.
  • Check for signs of breathing. If there is none or breathing is very weak, administer mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
  • If the person is bleeding, apply direct pressure on the site of the wound.
  • Try to keep the victim warm and calm.
  • Do not try to push a broken bone back into place if it is sticking out of the skin. You can apply a moist dressing to prevent it from drying out.
  • Do not try to straighten out a fracture.
  • Do not allow the victim to walk.
  • Splint unstable fracture to prevent painful motion.
