• Treatment of shock by folk remedies and methods

    Shock is a heavy condition that develops under the influence of extreme pain stimuli( severe stroke, myocardial infarction, perforated stomach ulcer, pancreatitis attack, etc.), after transfusion of non-group blood, serum administration and large blood loss.

    Shock is a much heavier state than collapse. At a shock the patient languid, apathetic, is indifferent to environment, almost does not complain of a pain. The skin is pale, the face is covered with cold sweat, there is a rare, shallow breathing, small partial pulse, low blood pressure. In the initial stages of shock, consciousness is preserved. The listed symptoms can be expressed in different degrees depending on the stage of shock.

    First aid is to eliminate or at least weaken the cause that caused the state of shock. The patient is given a sniff of ammonia, warmed up with warmers, given to drink tea, coffee, alcohol,

    vodka, analgin, amidopyrine and must cause an "ambulance".If previously there was no immobilization( with fractures), do it.

    When bleeding from superficial vessels, a pressure bandage is applied, with bleeding from deeper vessels - a tourniquet( central lesions on top of clothing).If the tourniquet was applied early, but the bleeding continues, it is necessary to apply another tourniquet slightly higher than the first, and then remove the first tourniquet.

    This is a complex of urgent, simple actions and activities that need to be carried out at the scene. This assistance can be provided both by strangers and by the injured( self-help).It often turns out that during the provided pre-hospital care saves the life of the patient.
