I am affraid I blame the Yanks, more and more people will sue you if you get it wrong.
You may well save their life but if you cripple them in the process you could find yourself in court.

I and other that are involed in the medical field either full time or part time, like me, are covered by insurance as long as we do it by the book.
If we don't they would drop us like a hot spud.

Joe Blogs on his boat with a few mates is unlikely to have that sort of back up so best advice is only do what your trained to and only give what you are allowd and insured to.

Its all well and good being the hero and over stepping the mark but where are you if it all went wrong?

Yes I do think everytime before I step in sorry but it is the world we live in today.

Also what is the very first rule of first aid..............Self preservation

Kind regards

One of the principles of first aid I remember is to do no further harm to the casualty.A conscious casualty can only take their own medication and treatment to be given with their consent.I try to keep things simple-loads of military field dressings,bottle of water for flushing wounds,plasters,roll of cling film for puncture wounds.Breaks of upper limbs are dealt with by tucking affected limb into a fleece or coat for support/lower limbs by immobilizing both legs to a paddle.A shelter tent is good for keeping a casualty out of the cold environment- 3 people fit in it and when not in use it is light and compact.I also carry a small burns kit made of fire gel which you get in small bottle form or impregnated in bandage.
