Answer . \nThere are many types of financial aid. To apply for financial aid you want to fill out a form called the FAFSA. You can do this online or get a paper copy from the college you wish to attend or you high school guidance counselor. You must fill this out between January 1, 2007 and I… think March 30, 2007 to be eligible for aid the following school year. If you are eligible the types of aid are numberous:\n1. Grants-these you do not have to pay back and are given to students with financial need.\n2. Scholarships-thes do not have to be repaid either and they are given to exceptional or outstanding students for things like G.P.A.'s, sports, arts, etc.\n3. Work Study-this is when you get a job on campus and can earn money to help you with school.\n4. Student Loans-these need paid back. Be careful not to get carried away and borrow to much. Be responsible and know what kind of loan you are getting and keep in mind that you must pay the money back after you graduate and get a job. (MORE)

HTLA and GRID--- the difference was that a french team of doctors and an American team of doctors were both doing research using a different name for the same disease. The American doctor published first and aids became HIV. Actually, the first name given to AIDS was "4 H disease" or the "scarlet …letter H disease". This is because the first cases of the disease were found among homosexuals, Haitians, hemophiliacs, and heroin users. Later the name was changed to GRID, for Gay related immune deficiency. HTLV III was one of the first names for HIV before naming it HIV by the Committee on the Taxonomy of Viruses. (MORE)

A compound fracture is generally spoken of as a broken bone that has been shifted enough that part of the bone has broken through the skin and is "sticking out" to be visible. Kinda yucky, but that description is the key to diagnosis. It's hard to miss. There are two issues to balance when aiding a …victim of a compound fracture. One is bleeding, and the other is prevention of further tissue damage by bone fragments. You'll need serious help, so get that 911 call made ASAP and tend to your victim. It is important to stop bleeding, but do not apply pressure to the fracture to stem bleeding. This may easily cause further tissue damage by moving the bone fragments around. Using a clean cloth, apply pressure near the wound (not on it!) to see if there is a point where you significantly slow bleeding without pressing on the wound itself. You'll have to use your best judgment in this. Do not let your victim bleed to death while waiting for emergency services to respond. Do not move the victim unless absolutely necessary! This will minimize further tissue damage from the bone fragments. You have to immobilize the affected area if there is any way to do so. Cardboard, rolled up newspaper, sticks or what have you can be applied to this along with torn strips of clothing. There is some good first aid advice in the Wilderness Manuals. Need a link? You got it. (MORE)
Wrap it up tightly and call 911. If you don't have a phone limp to a nearby place. Remember that First Aid is all about stabilization and transport -- we aren't going to actually treat a leg fracture in the field. That said... Check patient for airway, breathing, cardiac, bleeding, and determine …if the fracture is compound. If compound apply a dressing to the wound and control bleeding. Splint the leg for immobility, taking care not to move the bone ends any more than is absolutely necessary. When bones break (and especially the femur), they often release fat into the bloodstream, which in turn can cause some disorientation and panic -- be ready for this and restrain if necessary. Treat for shock, elevate legs above the heart if it's easy, and transport. If you're in the field and can't get transport, secure the patient to a litter (Stokes if you have one: fashion a travois from branches if you don't), and transport to the nearest help. Make sure you maintain the patient's body temp and hydration. Administer pain control if you have that capability. If you are in a place such as a mountain or a dessert (doing extreme sports), always ensure you have a means of communication and that you inform the right people before doing it your plans. Reducing a compound fracture in the field is beyond the scope of this reply. ** In cases of femur fractures, the body may lose two pints of blood from your circulatory system and may send the victim into shock, in order to help the pain of a femur fracture, pull by the foot, it will initially hurt but the victim will be relieved that their bones are no longer crunching. Do not release this until emergency personnel come with a traction splint. (MORE)

Apply cold packs to the area, keep it still, do not apply any weight, seek professional medical attention. Prevent motion of the injured part; ~nova net~
Call 911 and let the EMS folks take care of fractures. Unless absolutely required, do not move patient yourself. If you must move patient, immobilize the broken limb, BUT DO NOT TRY TO RESET THE BREAK!!!
If is a hairline fracture of the a forearm bone (radius or ulna) for instance, then splinting/casting may be all that is needed - in order to allow for safe healing to occur (no pain from muscular movements in the arm, and minimal arm movements so as not to allow for further damage, while healing).A…nd start to put presure on the minor fracture.

Treat for shock, elevate legs above the heart if it's easy, and transport. If you're in the field and can't get transport, you have a few options. Fractures in less critical areas (arms, hands, etc.) you can walk out, depending on the patient's condition. Leg fractures and other fractures that preclude walking but are not instantly life threatening, can be littered out -- secure the patient to a litter (Stokes if you have one: fashion a travois from branches if you don't), and transport to the nearest help. Make sure you maintain the patient's body temp and hydration. Administer pain control if you have that capability. More sever fractures that require evac mean you'll need to get a call into a rescue unit (radio or cell phone if you hanve it; two runners if you don't have communications, one runner alone is at risk). Reducing a compound fracture in the field is beyond the scope of this reply. Notes on specific fractures. Skull Fractures: If you have cause to system a skull fracture, this is a critical injury and needs transport to an ER. While any fracture is serious, this is one of the most so. In this case, if possible, you should get rescue to come to you. Skull fractures may warrant a medi-vac. Fractured Toes. Usually the least dangerous fracture although extremely painful. You can often strap the toe to the adjacent to for support instead of splinting. If the great toe is invovled, or if pain too great, you may need to carry the patient. Fractures of the chest. The primary problems here relate to breathing. First, fractured ribs always make it hurt to breathe, so you'll need to find a poistion where the patient experiences the least discomfort breathing. This almost always means sitting up. Note also that broken ends of ribs can puncture lungs. Look for wheezing noices, bloody froth at the lips, a puffy neck (which may crackle like rice crispies if you palpate it) -- these are all signs that a lung has been peirced and that the separation between blood and air is compromised, so this is not a REAL emergency, and you'll need to transport fast. Keep a shapr eye on the patient's breathing and skin tone. If they starting breathing irregularly, or become cyanotic (pale or blue-tinged), you have trouble, and need to use utmost speed, as treatment for this in the field requires a very high level of skill. At this point the patient should be on O 2 if you have it. In the field, it is possible for the patient to walk -- maybe, and you may also be able to litter them out, depending on the extent of the injury."Flail Chest", where the ribs are broken in two places, allow for a deep indentation to appear in the chest, can compress internal processes. This one calls for a medivac also. Monitor the patient for cardiac problems. Fractures of spine or neck. If you suspect this may be the case, immobilize patient, and treat for shock (preserve comfort and body temp). This one cannot be safely walked out -- you'll need to send for help to evac the patient. Once more, me extremely careful not to move the spine. If you must, get everyone to help you move the patient, keeping the head, neck and spine all in line as you roll them. Keep the patient as comfortable as possible, maintain hydration and body temp, and get help to come to you.. (MORE)
Cuts - It is treated by applying pressure (manually and later with a pressure bandage) to the wound site and elevating the limb if possible. Burns - This can result in damage to tissues and loss of body fluids through the burn site. A cream (which is in the First aid box) is put on a burn…ed surface to decrease the pain. By Nishant (MORE)
Foreign aid is initially provided for short term aid inemergencies. The goal of foreign aid is to help make peopleself-sufficient and able to take care of themselves.
When you don't know what to do! Call 911 or other emergency no. wherever you are.
when the casulty gives consent. when consent is implied they ask you to help them. they are uncocnious even if before they refused your help you can now help them!
make them worm, get them to a hospital, put them in warn ( not hot ) water... stuff like that
In case of fracture the 1st rule of thumb is to take caution "not to cause any more damage to the fractured bone" . hence it must be checked that the Broken part should not be moved or allowed to move no matter what. when bones get fractured it implicit a severe pain. so the patient should be gi…ven pain killers like morphine. Try to get to the nearest Hospital where proper treatment can be done. As this wound is from the inside of the Body, one will hardly be able to give much help to the patient. (MORE)
run cool water over the effected area for at least 5 min or until the pain subsides . then dress with sterile gause bandage preferably burn dressings
Improvise. SABC: obtain splinting materials (branch, strips of cloth, poncho, etc.) close by to form an expedient splint
Check them over, find all the open areas, if the cuts are superficial clean them up. Preferably with Normal Saline, you can add antibiotic ointment and cover with guaze if you think the wound needs it. Otherwise just be sure to keep the wound clean to prevent infection. If the cuts aren't superficia…l go to the emergency department if you think you need sutures or styaples. If it doesn't look too bad, but bleeds a lot then clean it up and then apply pressure over the area to help decrease the blood flow. It helps if you hold the area high, for example if you have a cut on your forearm, holding it above your head will help slow the blood flow. (MORE)
Literally means "break". In geology it can be a tension-crack by dessication or tectonic forces in a sediment or precipitation-formation; or a cooling-contraction crack in igneous rock (think Giant's Causeway). It can also be a Fault - a major cross-formation break with accompanying displacement o…f one side against the other, caused tectonically by crustal deformation. (MORE)

A compound fracture (also known as an open fracture) is one which the bone protrudes the skin. The danger here is infection so you need to cover the wound to prevent infection, immobilise the area and call for help. There is not much else you can do in a first aid capacity until an ambulance arrives…. When they do arrive they may decide to straighten the limb to help circulation and prevent bones fusing in the wrong position and they will be taken to hospital for an xray and further treatment.

For first and second degree burns(redness and blisters), you can run the burn under cool water. You can also apply an ice pack or some Aloe Vera gel/spray. For third and electrical burns(charred/burned skin), you call 911. Then you cover the burn with a sterile bandage. DO NOT apply ointments, gels,… or creams. DO NOT run under water or apply ice. DO NOT attempt to remove the clothing from affected area. (MORE)
it depends on the breathing problems but if the person were choking then you would need to perform the Heimlich manoeuvre
Unlike elsewhere, natural disaster such as tropical cyclone is common all over the south pacific.

Fiji on the other hand do braodcast their humanitarian help AID but Aust & NZ takes care of the Pacific most of the time including funding, aid, health,food, shelter etc. (MORE)
The limb should be immobilised with splints. It should be moved as little as possible to reduce the chance of further injury.
Because, even if you don't care about the well being of people in other country's you are vying for their support in the world in competition with other country's. If one of your competitors on the world market makes an impression on a poor country and starts to use that country's position militaril…y or economically then it put you in a slightly weaker position. You will note that much aid directed to other country's by wealthier country's is distributed in such a way as to keep the poor blighters in poverty by supplying weapons as well as humanitarian aid.

There is a technique called the Heimlich maneuver, which is done by standing behind the person who is choking and rapidly pushing upward and inward on the diaphragm or lower stomach area, in order to drive air through the throat and dislodge whatever object is causing the choking.
First aid should be given in an effort to prevent further injury.If the injury from the accident is relatively small, first aid maywork as a final fix. For a larger injury, basic first aid can helpto forestall further injuries. For these larger injuries, theinjured party should visit a hospital to e…nsure they get the mostcomplete treatment for their injury, but first aid prior to thehospital visit can help to prevent further injury.

First aid is given for three main reasons: 1. To sustain life. 2. To prevent the condition from worsening. 3. To promote recovery. First aid forms an important part in the chain of medical care. First aid is referred to as the aid given before the arrival of medical or ambulance aid. A first aider… is someone who has successfully completed a course of instruction in lifesaving first aid intervention techniques. Often, the first person on the scene of an accident is a first aider. Their timely arrival and help can often mean the difference between life and death. In conclusion, first aid is an important skill; perhaps just as important as ambulance aid. Without first aid, initial management of the scene can be very difficult. To take a course in first aid, simply contact your local Red Cross Branch or the local St John Ambulance Division. (MORE)

Wash gently but well with soap and tepid water. Rinse well. Put a thin film of all-purpose anti-biotic ointmment on it. Cover loosely with gauze orr non-stick pad band-aid-type bandage.
A splint provides support to the broken arm. It also gets rest so that the recuperation is done in a proper manner.
first aid should be givin when it is needed. it can be as simple as a band-aid or stabilising a person till the ambulance comes. it is a very important skill to have.
That is not really a medical problem. You could have them stretch and breath more. You can also have them drink more water.
Immobilize the extremity (splints and/or wraps) and icepack it. Administer painkillers as necessary. Depending on the extent of the injury, you can transport or possibly send the patient to their own medical facility.
you need to support the fracture with something straight and stiff try not to walk with the fracture and immediately call for medical assistance

Protect your skin from further exposure. If you're outside, warm frostbitten hands by tucking them into your armpits. Protect your face, nose or ears by covering the area with dry, gloved hands. Don't rub the affected area and never rub snow on frostbitten skin. . Get out of the cold. Once you're… indoors, remove wet clothes. . Gradually warm frostbitten areas. Put frostbitten hands or feet in warm water --- 104 to 107.6 F (40 to 42 C). Wrap or cover other areas in a warm blanket. Don't use direct heat, such as a stove, heat lamp, fireplace or heating pad, because these can cause burns before you feel them on your numb skin. . Don't walk on frostbitten feet or toes if possible. This further damages the tissue. . If there's any chance the affected areas will freeze again, don't thaw them. If they're already thawed, wrap them up so that they don't become frozen again. . Get emergency medical help. If numbness or sustained pain remains during warming or if blisters develop, seek medical attention. (MORE)

a splint should be applied to immobilize the limb on the way to the hospital.
Apply a splint; for lower leg a fixed splint and upper leg a traction splint.
If first aid is not given then the patient bare the pain and can cause death.
For a simple fracture the first aid is to attach a splint, to holdthe bone pieces in place.
The three goals of first aid for uncomplicated stings are toprevent injury to rescuers, deactivate the nematocysts , and remove tentacles attached to thepatient. Vinegar (3-10% aqueous acetic acid ) may be used as a common remedy tohelp with box jellyfish stings.Clearing the area of jelly, ten…tacles, and wetness further reducesnematocyst firing. Scraping the affected skin with a knife edge,safety razor, or credit card may remove remaining nematocysts.Immunobased antivenins have been available since the 1970s;administration requires medical personnel and refrigeration and areused in extreme cases.
