Knowing basic first aid methods is very important, but it’s crucial to perform them correctly. Did you know that hydrogen peroxide and iodine could be dangerous for you? Here are several of the most widely spread mistakes people make when performing first aid.

Putting a spoon into the mouth of a person having a seizure 0:35
Cardiac compressions can lead to lung damage 1:24
Paracetamol may lead to liver issues 2:14
Throwing back your head or lie on your back with a nosebleed 2:57
Pulling a road accident victim from the car 3:45
Taking vomit-inducing drugs in case of severe poisoning 4:19
Applying a tourniquet to stop bleeding 5:03
Curing wounds with hydrogen peroxide and iodine can be dangerous 5:41
If you’re bitten by a snake or a venomous insect, don’t suck out the venom 6:28
How to correctly make an injection 7:17

- Pulling his or her tongue can also be dangerous. When in a fit, a person can swallow or choke on an object placed in their mouth to protect the tongue.
- Cardiac compressions can easily result in broken ribs, which may severely damage the lungs and heart. You should only do cardiac compressions if you’re sure the person has no pulse, isn’t breathing, and there’s no doctor around.
- Paracetamol, or acetaminophen, relieves pain and inflammation, and it is a part of many modern drugs. Keep in mind that its overdose may cause liver and kidney failure.
- If you do this, the blood pressure in your head rises. You can’t know how bad the bleeding episode is, so the blood can get into your lungs or cause vomiting.
- Most deaths in road accidents occur because of neck and spine injuries. The slightest move in an attempt to help a victim may kill them or render them paralyzed.
- Drug overdoses or alcohol intoxication may be as hazardous as a glass of gasoline drunk in a gulp. Without qualified help, the victim may die within an hour.
- An incorrectly applied tourniquet may result in excess limb pressure and can lead to amputation. It doesn’t stop the bleeding but prevents blood circulation which leads to necrosis.
- Peroxide destroys connective tissue cells, preventing the wound from healing. Iodine and alcohol burn healthy cells and can induce pain, shock, and burns if applied to a wound.
- The venom mixes with your saliva and makes itself a new target of your mucous membrane. This will accelerate the poisoning and can result in lung edema and heart failure.
- When making an injection into the buttocks, divide the muscle into four parts in your head. Quickly press the needle 3 quarters of the way into the upper right part (to avoid touching the sciatic nerve).
