Dos and Don'ts:

Head Injuries
Head injuries must be handled carefully.
For anything more than a bump on the head,
call 911 right away and then follow these tips:
Do check for a pulse. If you're unable to
find one or detect breathing, begin CPR.
Don't move the injured person unless it is
to get him or her out of harm's way.
Do press a clean cloth directly on a
wound to stop the bleeding.
Don't remove any objects or debris
from a head wound.
Do stabilize the person's head by placing
one hand on each side.
