How to Treat for Shock
Trainees enrolled in St Mark James training will learn to recognize and manage victims that are in shock. Shock is a circulatory emergency that left untreated can become fatal. To minimize shock for a patient complete the following actions.
- Give first aid for the injury or illness that is causing distress or is the source of the shock.
- Reassure the patient as often as possible.
- Be gentle and minimize pain by handling the casualty as gently as possible.
- Loosen any tight fitting clothing around the neck, chest or waist.
- Keep the casualty warm if applicable and do not over heat. Use jackets, coats or blankets if you have them.
- Moisten the lips if the casualty complains of thirst. Do not give the person anything to drink.
- Place the casualty in the best position. More information on how to do this is available with hands on training at any St Mark James first aid course.
- Continue providing care until EMS arrives.
