Overview

First Aid is a crafting skill used to treat the player's injuries. As the skill level increases, the player will perform medical interactions faster, make bandages and poultices last longer, make splints more effective and heal fractures faster and evaluate the severity of wounds and 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 Bourbon. 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

First, identify the type of wound and its location.

  • For a scratch or laceration, disinfect and bandage. Change bandages out whenever they get dirty, and be sure to clean bandages as soon as possible so they can be safely reused.
  • For deeper injuries, first remove any foreign objects (such as bullets or glass shards) in the wound, then disinfect, and stitch up the wound using a needle and thread or suture needle. Bandaging is optional, but may help prevent possible infections.
  • For deep internal injuries such as fractures, apply a splint if possible (note: head and torso fractures cannot be splinted), then bandage. Fractures can take a very long time to heal.
  • Burns should be cleaned frequently and otherwise treated like other injuries. Sterilized bandages are strongly recommended if available. Note that burns take much longer to heal than normal injuries.

Once the immediate crisis is averted, all that remains is to monitor the patient's status. Bandages should be kept clean and switched out whenever they become dirty, painkillers can be administered when necessary, antibiotics should be provided to treat wound infections if available (but don't waste them on someone who definitely has the Knox Infection), and so on.

Items

Bandages

Bandages are used to treat injuries and will stop wounds from bleeding. Bandages will become dirty over time, but can be washed with clean water in the player's inventory. Getting bandaged by a doctor with high first aid skill will cause the bandages to last longer before becoming dirty. Sterilized bandages prevent the wound of getting infected and reduce the level of any current wound infection. Dirty bandages increases infection chance.

Suture

Surgical suture (also known as stitches) or suture is a medical procedure used to hold together a wound after an injury or surgery. The usage involves using a suture needle with sterile lengths of thread to stitch the wound closed. The material of the suture thread varies, and are commonly absorbable by the body for full healing.

Disinfection

Wounds can be sterilized using Bottle of Disinfectant, Bourbon, Cotton Balls or Alcohol Wipes. This prevents injuries from getting infected. Existing infected wounds can be disinfected to improve their healing rate.

Bandages can be disinfected with Bottle of Disinfectant, Bourbon or boiled water in a Cooking Pot or Saucepan.

Infected wounds cause additional pain.
