Treat wounds with mercurochrome or mercurochrome.
If you have a heart attack, patting your elbow can give first aid.
People fainted, immediately pinch people have miraculous effect;
These widely circulated first aid methods may be familiar to everyone. However, these methods are not only useless, but also may harm the body.
Today, Ding Dang invited Mr. Zhang Yuanchun to talk to you about the misunderstanding of first aid.
Myth 1: Treat Wounds with Mercurochrome and Mercurochrome
Mercurochrome, also known as mercurochrome, contains mercury ions. Too much use may cause mercury poisoning and is not very safe.
As for amethyst, studies have found that it has certain potential carcinogenicity and is hardly used now.
At present, the hospital is used to treat wounds, generally iodine, iodophor, hydrogen peroxide, etc. These disinfection articles also have some places that need to be paid attention to in use and cannot be used casually.

Myth 2: In case of myocardial infarction, clapping your arm can give first aid.
Myocardial infarction is essentially a problem with the blood vessels supplying the heart, and thrombus grows in the blood vessels of the heart. It is sheer nonsense to want to eliminate thrombus by clapping arms.
Even if the blood vessels of the arm have thrombus, only special drugs can eliminate it. Beating the arm may cause the thrombus of the arm to fall off and block other blood vessels.
In case of sudden myocardial infarction, it is the correct method to immediately stop all activities and seek help from others, or to call 120 and go to the hospital for treatment with the help of others as soon as possible.

Myth 3: Diabetic patients with sudden hypoglycemia cannot eat sugar during first aid.
With diabetes, one of the more worrying conditions is hypoglycemia.
In fact, hypoglycemia is very dangerous, and it can be effectively improved if some sugary foods or beverages are added.
In a word, diabetics are not absolutely forbidden to eat sugar. We suggest to carry foods such as sugar with them so that sugar can be supplemented in time when hypoglycemia attacks.
Myth 4: When cardiac arrest is found, artificial respiration is immediately carried out.
There are some news headlines that are almost becoming the norm, such as: < < the most beautiful XX gives XX artificial respiration regardless of vomit > >.
Regardless of whether it is the most beautiful or not, only artificial respiration is mentioned.
In fact, in the early stage of most cardiac arrest, compression is much more important than artificial respiration. Only artificial respiration without chest compression cannot save people!
Therefore, the recommended approach is:
- Ordinary people who have not received training perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation with simple compression on adult patients under the guidance of telephone. Trained people should still use the traditional cardiopulmonary resuscitation method, which combines compression and artificial respiration, for patients.
Myth 5: Pinch people who faint
Pinch people is not as magical as reported on TV. It is only a method to check the patient’s consciousness and has no therapeutic effect.
To put it bluntly-
Those who can wake up can wake up without pinch, and those who cannot wake up are useless.
Myth 6: Fish bone stuck in throat, treated with Heimlick first aid method
Using Heimlick’s first aid method, not only can fish bones not be removed, but also organs are likely to be damaged.
If you are really stuck by a fish bone, don’t swallow rice, you can try coughing to let the fish bone fall off first.
If it is still not possible, just go to the hospital and ask a doctor for help.

Myth 7: Giving Drowning Persons [Water Control]
After drowning, controlling water first will delay cardiopulmonary resuscitation and will only make the patient’s situation more dangerous.
Please remember: no pressure, no blood flow, no blood flow, no life.
Myth 8: Epileptic seizure, stuffing something into the mouth to prevent tongue bite
Don’t put anything in the patient’s mouth, doing so may damage the patient’s mouth and teeth, and in serious cases may cause suffocation after the thing is bitten off.
Epileptic patients will not bite off their tongues. During epileptic seizures, we only need to let the patients lie on their sides and remove sharp objects such as glasses. In serious cases, the patients should be sent to the hospital as soon as possible.
Myth 9: Heart attack, rely on continuous cough to save oneself
There is a saying that:
When you have a heart attack, you can save yourself by coughing continuously and taking deep breaths every 2 seconds until you receive professional assistance.
As a matter of fact, the timing suitable for self-rescue by this method cannot be judged by ordinary people at all. Only by means of ECG monitors can they know.
Even under the guidance of doctors, other first aid plans need to be prepared.
Therefore, in case of an emergency, we must not try.
Myth 10: You can’t lie down when you have a heart attack.
This is absolutely nonsense.
As long as the patient feels more comfortable lying down, he can lie down.
Of course, if you feel uncomfortable lying down, you can also take a sitting position, while patients with vomiting symptoms lying down can lie on their side.
