Fixing people up is a handy skill.

Just keep in mind that we're not your doctor. Reading about first aid on an Internet forum doesn't make you a doctor/medic/EMT/chiropractor/dentist, but it's a good place to start thinking and learning about the subject.

JIM has a great thread on approaching, triaging, and treating victims of motor vehicle collisions. Lots of good diagrams and charts:
viewtopic.php?f=43&t=35763

JIM has yet another great thread. This time it's how to control bleeding in a civilian setting (as opposed to a combat setting):
