Any time someone is in an accident or sustains an injury, there is a good chance that they will go into shock. Shock is a medical condition that occurs when the heart does not pump enough blood to the organs and limbs, so the body’s tissues begin to fail from lack of oxygen. The condition is life threatening, and is quite common, so be sure to treat all injury victims for shock. This guide will show you how.
First off, how to diagnose shock. It is important to realize that shock might not set in immediately after an injury, so you want to be sure to treat for shock even in none of the following symptoms appear; even someone who is in shock may not present with these symptoms. You can expect disorientation, fear, dizziness, and a feeling of weakness. The pulse may be rapid and weak, and breathing is often strained, irregular, and sped up. The skin may also become clammy or pale there may be nausea and vomiting.
Any time you are performing first aid in a situation where there is a serious injury involved, the first you want to do is to call for emergency medical care. You can call yourself or get someone else on the scene to call, and if no telephones are available then you should send someone to go find help.
Remember that shock is caused by another injury, so treat any injuries that you can find before proceeding to the next step.
Give the injured person a blanket and dry clothing if needed, and have them lie down. Try to put a pad or another blanket underneath them as well, since the ground will often be colder than the air. Put pillows, blanket, or something else underneath their feet in order to raise them up six to twelve inches, following the old adage: “If face be red, raise the head, if face be pale, raise the tail.”
Once you have done this, give the victim plenty of fluids, keep them warm, and make sure that someone stays by them. Fear and uncertainty will make the condition worse, so make sure that you talk to the injured person and try to reassure them. If possible, engage them in conversation to take their mind off their injuries.
Believe it or not, these simple steps could save someone’s life. Shock is a serious condition, but it is easily treated, so learn this procedure and be confident if you are ever required to perform it.
