    Immediately after

    You can replace "immediately after" with "right after", is there any difference between the two?
    4-53The following are the steps you should take to reduce pain and to heal quickly.
    Immediately after the injury, run cool water over the burned area until the pain is relieved.
    However, do not use ice to cool the burn
