Do you know what a seizure is? Do you know how to care for a person suffering from a seizure? These are important questions that everyone should know. Anyone can have a seizure at any time. Seizures will happen if you have epilepsy, other seizure disorders, accidents, poisonings, new medications, flashing lights etc...
A seizure is the electrical chemical activity caused by complex chemical changes that occur in nerve cells. Brain cells either excite or inhibit (stop) other brain cells from sending messages. Usually there is a balance of cells that excite and those that can stop these messages. However, when a seizure occurs, there may be too much or too little activity, causing an imbalance between exciting and stopping activity. The chemical changes can lead to surges of electrical activity that cause seizures.
If some one has a seizure please follow these steps;
Within the past few months in my CPR and first aid classes I have had construction workers say they have epinephrine pens because they have severe allergic reactions to bees. What really disturbs me, in one class, one guy said that he told his coworkers where his pen is, and that one bee sting can kill him and his coworkers started making jokes out of it. This type of allergic reaction is called anaphylaxis shock. It is VERY serious and could kill someone. THIS IS NO LAUGHING MATTER. A person with an epinephrine pen (epi pen) has a very serious allergy and needs your help to stay alive when stung by a bee.
Anaphylaxis causes your immune system to release a flood of chemicals that can cause you to go into shock. Your blood pressure will drop, causing your airway to narrow and block your breathing. The signs of anaphylaxis are rapid, or weak pulse, a skin rash, and nausea and vomiting. This is caused by the venom in the sting.
When someone gets stung by a bee, you must call 911 and give the person his epi pen. If you don't have an epi pen, you need to go to an emergency room immediately, by ambulance. If anaphylaxis isn't treated right away, it can be fatal.
The steps in using an epi pen are as followed;
On Monday afternoon, a 6-year-old child was pulled, unconscious from a backyard pool in West Phoenix. The family knew what to do and started CPR and call 911. The paramedics arrived and continued CPR and because the parents started CPR and paramedics did their job the boy started breathing on his own on the way to the hospital. The boy is in critical condition, and I will keep you updated on his progress let’s hope he make a great recovery.
Everyone that owns a pool should learn CPR and first aid. Parents never assume that this drowning incident will never happen to you because that is probably what these parents said. When you purchase a home with a pool or rent a home with a pool please follow these guidelines to make your summer fun safe.
