Your colleague is complaining of breathlessness and a tight pain in the chest. You suspect a heart attack. What should you do?
You need to ease the strain on his heart, so make him as comfortable as possible. A half-sitting position, with his head and shoulders supported and his knees bent is best. Call 999

One of your friends has cut his arm and is bleeding severely. How do you treat his injury?
Apply direct pressure over the wound with your hand using a clean dressing. If you don’t have a dressing, ask him to apply pressure himself. Maintain direct pressure on the wound to control bleeding.
