We hate to be alarmists here, but the older you get, the more likely you are to run into dangerous situations. Instead of being a useless bystander, it's important that that you brush up some first-aid tips. You don't need to be EMT-level prepared, but at the very least, you should have some working knowledge of what to do.

Trouble is, it can be difficult to remember all the ins and outs of first-aid. To be fair, there's a lot that can go wrong with the human body. The average person can't be expected to retain it all. That's why when we came across this question posed by reddit user, huomenna, we just knew it was important to share it with y'all. In fact, somebody's life could depend on it — ideally not your own, but, hey! You never know.

Huomenna writes, "What are some first-aid tricks we should all know?" We know that "tricks" may imply "half-assed", but, rest assured, these will make it easier to remember what to do in a crisis situation — whether it's humming a certain song or implementing an acronym, use these and you'll be a regular hero the next time something goes awry.
