Chest wounds

Chest injuries are serious especially when they affect the respiratory system, as they involve the danger of asphyxiation. If the lungs have been damaged, bubbles can be seen coming out of the wound.

What to do

  1. Cover the wound using sterile gauze compresses attached with a plaster or clean cloth. Place a sheet of plastic over this dressing, sealing the edges with a plaster, to prevent air from entering the wound and compressing the lungs (Figure 1).
  2. Take the injured person to the nearest hospital. Support the head and shoulders (semi-sitting position) or place it lying on the affected side. Don't make it drink.
