More First Aid Myths From The Oregonian
The Oregonian agrees: some of what you “know” about First Aid is probably wrong.
This weekend’s article even puts some hard stats behind that hunch:
More than half of 654 parents in a recent survey answered incorrectly some basic questions about treating burns, insect stings and bites. Three-fourths held mistaken notions about treating cuts and scrapes.
Wow. That’s a lot!
Thankfully the Oregonian also does a little myth-busting on the subjects of: bee stings, scrapes, splinters, sunburns, drowning and snakebites. Read up, then take a class.

P.S. Can somebody please remove these cutleries from my knees?
Thanks for sharing…
