First Aid is a crafting skill used to treat the player's injuries. It is one of the newer skills, along with Electrical, Fishing, Trapping, and Foraging. As the skill level increases, the player will be able to treat wounds faster, make better bandages, understand more ailments and spot infections. Experience is gained by players treating themselves or other players.

Usage

Treatment is carried out by right clicking on the body in the health status window, or right clicking the health status text if injuries are present. Treatment requires materials, even basic ones such as Ripped Sheets and/or Whiskey. Injuries are indicated by bleeding and/or injured moodles. First Aid will not reduce or change the chance of zombification from a zombie scratch or bite.

First Aid Flow

There are four types of injuries, basic treatment for any injury is a clean Bandage.png and maintaining it, optionally but suggested to keep the chance of infection at bay with Alcohol.png. Treatment is also painful most of the time, even as the player's First Aid skill increases in level.

Suture

Surgical suture (also known as stitches) or suture is a medical procedure used to hold together a wound after an injury or surgery.

Disinfection

Injuries and bandages/ripped sheets can be sterilized using Bottle of Disinfectant, Whiskey, Alcohol Cotton Balls, or Alcohol Wipes, and disinfecting injuries will decrease the chance of an infection occurring. Infected wounds cause health loss and pain. The risk of infection is greater if the player does not disinfect the wound and/or bandages being applied.
