When a loved one has a health problem it can be hard to remain calm. When danger hits, our bodies release stress hormones which can lead to panic. Try to keep calm in emergencies with these tips:
Concentrate on the tasks, call 911 and start CPR. Remember the acronym CAB: compressions, airways, respiration.
BREATHE! Try to breathe in while counting to three, hold your breath for three counts, and slowly breathe out to three counts.
Tell yourself "help is on the way" or "everything's going to be ok."
To learn more about emergency preparedness and first aid, look for classes near you. Clinics, fire departments, police stations, and local health departments often offer classes to the public.

An index finger's first joint is about 1 inch long and that is a good thing to learn because it can help save a life.

Thirty random tests conducted by health care providers called the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex. TFCC simply keeps your forearm bones and hands stable.

The experiments were done on a 3-month old mannequin, using the right middle index finger, the right middle ring finger, the left middle index finger, and the left middle ring finger.

The tests showed that compressions made with the index-middle fingers, regardless of which hand scored 90% higher than other fingers used. Now you know how to measure an inch and how it can help you save a life.

Stevie Wonder is right about “these three words are sweet and simple” particularly when saving lives. They are “check, check, call”, check for safety first, never put yourself in harm's way, if it's safe then you can check for a response by tapping the person on their shoulder, and last but not least, call for help.

“Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive. Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive.” Sing and save a life! This method of CPR was created by Alson S. Inaba, M.D., first have someone call 9-1-1-, then press hard and fast in the center of the adult's chest while singing the Bee Gees “Stayin Alive” song. The song has at least 100 beats per minute, the pace that's recommended by the American Heart Association for CPR chest compressions.

04/16/2020

Getting basic first aid skills is indeed a good idea just in case you need it yourself or anyone around you needs it. Here's a rundown of 4 most common accidents that involve first aid and what you can do when such an incident occurs.

Cut/Scrape:
When bleeding happens, press a clean cloth tightly over the site until it ceases, anywhere from three to 15 minutes. Clean with running water, and pat dry gently. Apply a thin layer of antibiotic ointment when the skin is split. Cover with a bandage or gauze and adhesive tape. If, after many attempts with direct pressure you can not stop the bleeding, call your pediatrician or go to an emergency room.

Burn:
Hold injury under cool running water immediately, or apply a cool, wet towel before the pain subsides. Cover with a loose gauze or bandages and treat any minor blisters. If burns occur on the face, hands, or genitals, or if they are larger than 1/4 inch anywhere on the body, call a doctor as early as possible. Head to the Emergency Room if the condition gets worse.

Nosebleed:
Sit up straight and don't kneel. Loosen your clothes close to your body. Pinch the lower end of the nose near the nostrils and lean forward as it applies constant pressure for five to ten minutes. Don't let go and test the nose. It can prolong the bleeding. If the nosebleed is the consequence of a trauma, you can minimize swelling by placing an ice pack against the nose bridge after stopping the bleeding. Contact the doctor or go to the emergency room to check for breakage if it lasts for more than ten minutes or returns later.

Sprains, Strains, and Tears:
The first thing to do when there is a sprain, strain, or tear is to immobilize the injured region, elevate it, and apply ice and compression to minimize swelling. A trip to the hospital can involve strains followed by extreme pain, swelling, or discoloration. Rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications can help the area recover in milder cases.

ymptoms

Sudden cardiac arrest symptoms are immediate and drastic and include:

Sudden collapse
No pulse
No breathing
Loss of consciousness
Sometimes other signs and symptoms precede sudden cardiac arrest. These may include fatigue, fainting, blackouts, dizziness, chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness, palpitations or vomiting. But sudden cardiac arrest often occurs with no warning.

When to see a doctor

If you have frequent episodes of chest pain or discomfort, heart palpitations, irregular or rapid heartbeats, unexplained wheezing or shortness of breath, fainting or near fainting, or you're feeling lightheaded or dizzy, see your doctor promptly. If these symptoms are ongoing, you should call 911 or emergency medical help.

When the heart stops, the lack of oxygenated blood can cause brain damage in only a few minutes. Death or permanent brain damage can occur within four to six minutes. Time is critical when you're helping an unconscious person who isn't breathing. Take immediate action.

Call 911, or the emergency number in your area, if you encounter someone who has collapsed or is found unresponsive. If the unconscious person is a child and you're alone, administer CPR, or chest compressions only, for two minutes before calling 911 or emergency medical help or before using a portable defibrillator.
Perform CPR. Quickly check the unconscious person's breathing. If he or she isn't breathing normally, begin CPR. Push hard and fast on the person's chest — at the rate of 100 to 120 compressions a minute. If you've been trained in CPR, check the person's airway and deliver rescue breaths after every 30 compressions.

If you haven't been trained, just continue chest compressions. Allow the chest to rise completely between compressions. Keep doing this until a portable defibrillator is available or emergency personnel arrive.

Use a portable defibrillator, if one is available. If you're not trained to use a portable defibrillator, a 911 or emergency medical help operator may be able to guide you in its use. Deliver one shock if advised by the device and then immediately begin CPR starting with chest compressions, or give chest compressions only, for about two minutes.

Using the defibrillator, check the person's heart rhythm. If necessary, the defibrillator will administer a shock. Repeat this cycle until the person recovers consciousness or emergency personnel take over.

Portable automated external defibrillators (AEDs) are available in an increasing number of places, including airports, casinos and shopping malls. You can also purchase them for your home. AEDs come with built-in instructions for their use. They're programmed to allow a shock only when appropriate.

Causes

Chambers and valves of the heart
Chambers and valves of the heart
The immediate cause of sudden cardiac arrest is usually an abnormality in your heart rhythm (arrhythmia), the result of a problem with your heart's electrical system.

Unlike other muscles in your body, which rely on nerve connections to receive the electrical stimulation they need to function, your heart has its own electrical stimulator — a specialized group of cells called the sinus node located in the upper right chamber (right atrium) of your heart. The sinus node generates electrical impulses that flow in an orderly manner through your heart to synchronize the heart rate and coordinate the pumping of blood from your heart to the rest of your body.

If something goes wrong with the sinus node or the flow of electric impulses through your heart, an arrhythmia can result, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or in an irregular fashion. Often these interruptions in rhythm are momentary and harmless. But some types of arrhythmia can be serious and lead to a sudden stop in heart function (sudden cardiac arrest).

The most common cause of cardiac arrest is an arrhythmia called ventricular fibrillation — when rapid, erratic electrical impulses cause your ventricles to quiver uselessly instead of pumping blood.

Most of the time, cardiac-arrest-inducing arrhythmias don't occur on their own. In a person with a normal, healthy heart, a lasting irregular heart rhythm isn't likely to develop without an outside trigger, such as an electrical shock, the use of illegal drugs or trauma to the chest at just the wrong time of the heart's cycle (commotio cordis).

Heart conditions that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest

A life-threatening arrhythmia usually develops in a person with a pre-existing heart condition, such as:

Coronary artery disease. Most cases of sudden cardiac arrest occur in people who have coronary artery disease. In coronary artery disease, your arteries become clogged with cholesterol and other deposits, reducing blood flow to your heart. This can make it harder for your heart to conduct electrical impulses smoothly.
Heart attack. If a heart attack occurs, often as a result of severe coronary artery disease, it can trigger ventricular fibrillation and sudden cardiac arrest. In addition, a heart attack can leave behind areas of scar tissue. Electrical short circuits around the scar tissue can lead to abnormalities in your heart rhythm.
Enlarged heart (cardiomyopathy). This occurs primarily when your heart's muscular walls stretch and enlarge or thicken. In both cases, your heart's muscle is abnormal, a condition that often leads to heart tissue damage and potential arrhythmias.
Valvular heart disease. Leaking or narrowing of your heart valves can lead to stretching or thickening of your heart muscle or both. When the chambers become enlarged or weakened because of stress caused by a tight or leaking valve, there's an increased risk of developing arrhythmia.
Congenital heart disease. When sudden cardiac arrest occurs in children or adolescents, it may be due to a heart condition that was present at birth (congenital heart disease). Even adults who've had corrective surgery for a congenital heart defect still have a higher risk of sudden cardiac arrest.
Electrical problems in the heart. In some people, the problem is in the heart's electrical system itself instead of a problem with the heart muscle or valves. These are called primary heart rhythm abnormalities and include conditions such as Brugada's syndrome and long QT syndrome.
Risk factors

Because sudden cardiac arrest is so often linked with coronary artery disease, the same factors that put you at risk of coronary artery disease may also put you at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. These include:

A family history of coronary artery disease
Smoking
High blood pressure
High blood cholesterol
Obesity
Diabetes
A sedentary lifestyle
Drinking too much alcohol (more than two drinks a day)
Other factors that may increase your risk of sudden cardiac arrest include:

A previous episode of cardiac arrest or a family history of cardiac arrest
A previous heart attack
A personal or family history of other forms of heart disease, such as heart rhythm disorders, congenital heart defects, heart failure and cardiomyopathy
Age — the incidence of sudden cardiac arrest increases with age
Being male — men are two to three times more likely to experience sudden cardiac arrest
Using illegal drugs, such as cocaine or amphetamines
Nutritional imbalance, such as low potassium or magnesium levels
Complications

When sudden cardiac arrest occurs, your brain is the first part of your body to suffer because, unlike other organs, it doesn't have a reserve of oxygen-rich blood. It's completely dependent on an uninterrupted supply of blood. Reduced blood flow to your brain causes unconsciousness.

If your heart rhythm doesn't rapidly return to its normal rhythm, brain damage occurs and death results. If sudden cardiac arrest lasts more than 8 minutes, survival is rare. Survivors of cardiac arrest may show signs of brain damage.
