ABSTRACT
The article provides information on managing different wounds and injuries. Serious chest injury usually results in fractured ribs and can be treated by Basic Life Support (BLS), covering any wound that is bubbling or sucking air with a piece of plastic bag, and painkillers. Cuts and lacerations are very common at sea and should be cleaned with antiseptic. Splinters are also a common problem at sea and a clean needle and tweezers should be used to remove splinter if possible.
