EMERGENCY, FIRST AID DURING FALLS.

Nothing external to you has any power over you, If you are ruled by mind you are a king; if by body, a slave.

In this beautifully nurtured world of CARERS, knowing exactly what to do in the few critically urgent moments of emergency, presumably, is life saving and prioritising. Remember being a carer in emergencies could be a professionally trained and effectively experienced person, most importantly, being a stranger or new upon a situation, circumstance or condition that requires quick and effective thinking and effort, yet providing substantial care and support instinctively is what is required to save a life. Emergencies ought for knowledge, experience and swift reaction, such as what to do when you witness someone having a fall.


Carers must be sacrificed to their skills.

When a person experiences any chest pain or difficulty with breathing as a cause or result of the fall, the rule is, cardiac arrest or breathing difficulties are best treated in a properly equipped hospital. Without delay quickly call an ambulance and give the exact description of conditions, highlighting the fact that the person is having breathing difficulties and a paramedic should be allocated to the scene within seconds. Before a paramedic arrives, if required the operated will support with enough instructions, will even support
to administer CPR, in the extremities, to stabilise conditions till a paramedic arrives. Caring in such conditions would not require a first aid certificate, preferably a qualified carer should approach CPR, but listening carefully and doing likewise or exactly what the operator says is essentially important.

Life would be a perpetual flea hunt if a man were obliged to run down all the innuendoes, inveracities, and insinuations and misrepresentations which are uttered against him. Personality is everything in care and caring.

In cases where a fall is associated with loss of consciousness or results in loss of consciousness. If there is, as a result of the fall, committing, dizziness or blurring of vision. An ambulance ought to be called, the rule is to investigate conditions the naked eyes can't see and rule out further damages internally.

The real challenge (in life) is to choose, hold, and operate through intelligent, uplifting, and fully empowering beliefs.

The fall resulted a known or thought to be a head injury. Good Luck is never the absence of bad luck, never delay instances of possible or actual head injuries. Never underestimate head injuries or your ability to deal with it by sending the person to the hospital.

The fall has accumulated evidence of shortening or rotation or deformity or pain on movement of any limb or region of the body, as a fact this could be possible signs of fracture and if left untreated will worsen. One must be aware that one is continually being tested in what one wishes most in order to make clear whether one's heart is on earth or in heaven.

If we do not rise to the challenge of our unique capacity to shape our lives, to seek the kinds of growth that we find individually fulfilling, then we can have no security: we will live in a world of sham, in which our selves are determined by the will of others, in which we will be constantly buffeted and increasingly isolated by the changes round us.

Anticipation and Observation remain the greatest weaponry in caring for each other.

After a fall if there is a soft tissue injury. Where the skin is been broken with bleeding which can not be stopped, then an ambulance must be called to transport the person to a hospital, for professional treated is needed to deal with blood loss and resulting consequences before treatment in the hospital.

In circumstances of falls where there is any evidence of neck pain or injury, then the person must be sent to the hospital and prior to the treatment in a hospital, the neck needs proper support and possible restricted to unnecessary movements.

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.

The carers instinct should encourage the best of observation and anticipation, to ensure that hospital treatment is attained, if the person's general condition or cognitive state suddenly deteriorates.

There is a vast difference in some instances between what we really do and that which we think we must do, and the realization of this truth will greatly lessen the seeming discomfort in judging.

Nonetheless, If no one witnessed the fall and the history that can be obtain from the fallen person is not thought to be reliable, then it's a wake up call for the ambulance.

Know what you can do, be your real self and do the just.
