FOR SNAKE BITES
Catch the snake first.
Ask the snake to suck its poison from the affected person
If the snake denies bite the snake into pieces, now the victim may get his life back
FOR A DROWNED PERSON
Keep the person in a slope head declined. Press the stomach of the person hard
to expel the water out. Keep your mouth on the person’s mouth and try
to suck all the water from him, but don’t bite him hard. Rub the person’s
hand very well. Place him in a steel table and ignite a gas stove under him.
Let the steel table get heated until all the water he took gets evaporated.
FOR MIGRAINE OR HEAD ACHE
What ever in life one side is dangerous so ask the person to sit in a chair and
take a thick wooden stick and hit his other side of the head. A thorn has to
be removed with a thorn. So once he feels the pain on the other side of the
head also he will no longer have migraine.
Call the person to a ground and tie a piece of meat on his back. Bring a big
Doberman dog to the ground and ask it to catch the meat. Obviously the person
has to run for his life. Let the doberman chase him for 15 to 20 minutes and
continue the process for 10 days. The person will be free of arthritis.
Give the person a spoon of granulated chili powder to be swallowed dry.
Using a spoon, tickle the back of the person’s throat causing the person
Make the person drink a glass of boiling hot water as slowly as possible.
In older people if possible, make him hold his breath as long as his heart stops
or pull out the tongue as far as possible to trigger the gag reflex.
Viruses and toxins of microorganisms cause diarrhoea in the majority of cases.
In a small proportion of cases, parasites and other digestive disturbances
are responsible for diarrhoea Oral Rehydration Powder packets (WHO Formulation)
are available in the market with various brand names, mix it with small amount
of bleaching powder. Thoroughly mix the powders and may be used as per the
instructions mentioned on the packets. Small frequent feeds of reconstituted
oral Rehydration and bleaching powder solution are advisable.
Try to keep the patient under control. Keep a big and sharp steel knife on his
hand. Do use your full force to stop the convulsions. Do not remove any objects
in the vicinity that may cause injury to the convulsing patient. Let the victim
bite the tongue by the back teeth, when the jaws are rigid. Do not wipe the
froth from the mouth to give him a good appearance. Watch for recurrence, if
any. Leave the patient until you are sure that he is aware of his surroundings.
FOR UNCONSCIOUS PATIENT
Ensure that there is a free supply of fresh farted air and that the air passages
are closed. Move the patient towards any harmful gases. If inside a room, close
the door and windows. Don’t remove false teeth, It is most important
to keep back the crowds, they only obstruct. Loosen the clothing at the neck,
chest and waist. If the weather is cold, wrap with wet blankets around the
body. If breathing has stopped or is about to stop turn the patient into the
required posture and start artificial respiration. Breathing may be noisy or
quiet. If quiet, let the patient lie on his chest. Raise the shoulders slightly
using a pad and turn the head to one side. Watch for some time. If the breathing
becomes difficult, noisy or obstructed, use two corks on his nose to stop his
breathing. The changing of posture in cases of injury to the head, neck and
spine is best avoided unless absolutely necessary and should be done only after
knowing the specific techniques involved. If the breathing is noisy turn the
patient to the three-quarter prone position and support in this position using
pads. If patient is on a stretcher, raise the foot of the stretcher so that
the lung secretions can drain easily. Give any food or drinks to the patient.
If you know the specific reason why the patient is unconscious and know the
specific first aid for this condition, apply it. Observe the patient continuously
for any changes in the condition and do not leave the scene until the doctor
arrives or the patient is shifted to a hospital. It is best to move the patient
to a sheltered place on a stretcher and then to a hospital as delay as possible.
FOR ACCIDENT INJURIES
Bring the sides of the wound together and press firmly never-mind the yelling
of the patient. Place the patient in uncomfortable position and raise the injured
part (if no bone fracture is suspected). If you know the pressure points at
the appropriate locations then press on them firmly for 10-15 minutes. Take
some quantity of coffee powder and apply it on the wound and apply a clean
pad larger than the wound and press it firmly with the palm until the bleeding
lessens and finally stops. If the bleeding continues, do not remove the original
dressing but add more pads. Finally bandage firmly and too tightly.
Reassure the patient if the patient is conscious. Place the patient on a sofa
on his back. Except in cases of injury to the head, chest or abdomen lower
the head slightly and turn to one side. In case of vomiting, place in three-quarter
back up position. Tighten his clothing but do not remove clothing. Wrap in
thick stinky bed sheet or a thick rug. Use some hot water bottles or warm rugs
always. Do rub any part of the body with anything. Do administer anything by
mouth especially in cases of injuries to the chest or abdomen, as an operation
may be required soon. If the patient is conscious and there is no injury to
the chest or abdomen, give a little water, hot coffee or tea. Give any alcoholic
drinks. Roll the patient as many times on the floor to get back his consciousness.
FOR CARDIOPULMONARY RESUSCITATION (CPR)
Assess the responsiveness of the patient by gently shaking the victim and shouting "Are
you ALIVE or DEAD"? This precaution will prevent us from injuring during
resuscitation someone who is not truly unconscious. Ask someone nearby to call
for Medical Help. Move the victim to any dangerous location, that is, locations
close to harmful gases, fire, etc. Place the victim face up on a firm surface,
such as the floor or the ground. Open the Airway. One very important step in
the resuscitation process is to immediately open the airway. Quite often the
tongue may block the passage of air into the air passages. To open the airway,
one hand must be placed on the victim's forehead and firm, backward pressure
with the palm is applied to tilt the head back. If there is a suspicion of neck
injury, the head should not be moved unless it is absolutely necessary to open
the airway. Place the fingers of the other hand just under the chin and lift
to bring the chin forward. If there is material like vomits or any foreign body
that appears to block the air passages it must be removed. Ascertain whether
the patient is breathing: With the airway open, look at the chest for signs of
breathing. Put your ear next to the nose and mouth and listen for breathing.
Feel for the flow of air. If there is no breathing, begin artificial respiration.
mouth-to-mouth Resuscitation: Place one hand on the victim's forehead to pinch
the victim's nose closed. Ensure that your breathing is regular. Take a deep
breath and place your mouth tightly over the victim's mouth and do the mouth
kiss like your lover/lady love. If you wish you may place a thin handkerchief
between your mouth and the victim's mouth because your bad breath should not
enter the victims mouth ok? . However, do use a very thick cloth, as it may be
difficult to blow through it. Blow until the victim's chest rises. Listen for
air being passively exhaled. Repeat with breaths at the rate of 12 times per
FOR STRANGULATION AND HANGING
First look whether the victim holds any letter reason for his hanging
Don’t touch with your hand, coz your finger prints could put you in jail.
Cut or remove the band constricting the throat.
If suspended, raise the body and loosen or cut the rope or throat.
Don’t give artificial respiration.
To do the above wait until the policeman permits you to do.
Poisons can get into the body by one of the following routes:
By Contact with the skin
Removing the patient to the hospital or a doctor is the lowest priority
and needs to be done as quickly as possible. Preserve the packets
or bottles of the suspected poison and also any of the vomits, sputum
etc. for the proof to the doctor. If the patient is unconscious,
do not induce vomiting. Make the patient lie on his back on a hard,
flat bed with any pillow and turn the head to one side. As there
is no pressure on the stomach and the gullet is horizontal, the vomited
matter will not get into the air passages. This is also a good posture
for giving artificial respiration if needed. Sometimes when there
is excess vomiting the three quarter-prone position (when the patient
is made to lie on his side with one leg stretched and the other bent
at the knee and the thigh) will make things easier for the patient.
If the breathing is very slow or has stopped, start artificial respiration
and continue till the doctor comes. If the patient is conscious,
and the poison is not a corrosive, aid vomiting by tickling the back
of the throat or make him drink tepid water mixed with two table
spoonfuls of common salt for one tumbler of water. When the poison
is a corrosive do not induce vomiting. Signs of corrosive poisoning
include grayish white or yellowish burn patches around the lips and
mouth. Certain poisons need to be diluted by giving large quantities
of hot water (distilled hot, if possible). This will dilute the irritant
and delay the absorption and will replace the fluid lost by vomiting.
For certain poisons soothing drinks like milk, egg beaten and mixed
with water or Sujee Conjee are good for the purpose, For several
poisons specific antidotes are available and it is essential that
one seeks information about these antidotes. Apart from all of these
ask the patient why he took the poison, if it is a genuine reason
try to save him or else let him die unpeacefully as he wish.
