First aid for eye damage
- Sep 07, 2018 -

Due to accidents or improper working methods, some chemical substances such as hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, sodium hydroxide, lime water, etc. splash into the eye and cause eye burns. At this time, if emergency emergency measures are taken incorrectly, serious consequences will result.

First Aid: 1. Don't waste any time, rinse your eyes with water immediately, and make sure there is water under the eyes. Do not let the patient rub the eyes.

2. Rinse eyes with water. If you can't find the faucet, rinse your eyes with the water in the cup and make sure the water enters the inner corner of the eye.

3. Flush the eyes, the patient's eyes are opened and rinsed with running water for at least 15 minutes. While flushing, the injured eye is turned to the sides, and the water first enters the eyes and flows out of the eyes.

4. If the patient wears contact lenses, he should be removed.

5. Cover the patient's eye. After rinsing, cover the patient's eyes with a clean cotton cloth and wrap the eyes to reduce the eye movement of the patient.

6. If possible, identify the chemicals that burn the eye, at least tell the doctor if the chemical is wet or dry.

7. If the lime particles are blown into the eyes, immediately open the eyelids, remove the lime particles, and rinse with plenty of water. (Common sense of life: Put the head into the basin, repeatedly blinking, closing the eyes, washing the foreign body, and then immediately sent to the hospital for treatment)

8. If the quicklime enters the eye, one can't rub your eyes with your hands; the second can't be washed directly with water (because the lime will form alkaline slaked lime when it meets water, it will generate heat, but it will burn your eyes if it is not handled properly). Use a cotton swab or a clean handkerchief to remove the lime powder, then rinse the injured eye repeatedly with water for at least 15 minutes. After rinsing, you should go to the hospital for treatment.
