How well do you know first aid?

What would happen if you or someone near you got injured, or became ill? Would you be able to help them, or is your knowledge in first aid so lacking that they could die at your feet and you wouldn't know it? Find out with this test to see where you stand, and to see if you need to go back to high school first aid.

In this test there are questions addressing both major and minor issues. Some are rather obvious, but some are a little tricky. Think back to your days in first aid class, and think, "What should I do in this situation? What is the right thing to do".
