Sudden Illness - Cold-Related Emergencies

With the colder temperatures - Hypothermia and frostbite are cold-related emergencies.  Both conditions can quickly become life or limb threatening.  Frostbite is the freezing of body parts.  Hypothermia is the cooling of the body caused by the failure of the body's warming system.  The goals of first aid care are to restore normal body temperature and to care for any conditions while waiting for EMS to arrive.  Of course there are ways to prevent these conditions by dressing appropriately and avoid staying in the cold too long.  Do you know what the symptoms look like for hypothermia?  shivering, numbness, glassy stare; indifference, weakness, impaired judgment; loss of consciousness.   Signals of frostbite will be lack of feeling in an affected area; skin that appears waxy, cold to the touch or discolored (flushed, white, yellow, or blue).   Do you know what to do to help someone with this condition?   Check, Call, Care is the American Red Cross guideline.  Check the scene for safety; Check the person, If need be, Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number; Care for the symptoms - moving the person to a warmer area; Monitor ABCs (Airway, Breathing, Circulation), Warm the person gradually - do not warm too quickly, Rapid warming may cause dangerous heart rhythms.  Something so simple can become a panic - that is why you should consider attending class for life saving skills.  First Care Emergency is available to help you become confident in helping someone in need of emergency training skills.

CPR changes is a special task to understand for the readers. We must have some spare time to understand this term which may be connected with creative ideas. For this reason we can utilize the idea of this blog and share with the new readers who are good in learning.

These are normal diseases happening in a country with cold temperature. I already experienced these two, luckily I have a sister who is a nurse and she did the first aid to me. Those people who can read this must be familiar with the tips and guidelines stated. This can really help you at times when someone experienced it. We should take this one seriously because we do not know what will happen next. We must take care of our self always.
