What our Trainer said:

“Applying first aid to someone we don’t know is probably the most frightening thing anyone can do. First Aid is 35% first aid knowledge, 15% common sense and 50% guts to attend someone (conscious or unconscious) who is ill or injured, whether they are in the workplace or at home.”
