I have taken first aid class at our company. I would like know the correct first aid for heart attack patients.
If a person is having chest pain, even if there’s a chance that he might not be suffering from a heart attack, he deserves the benefit of doubt. The first step is to help the patient relax. Loosen their clothes and open the windows. Next pop a tablet of aspirin into their mouth. Don’t give it to them with water. Ask them to chew it instead. If that’s not possible crush the tablet in a little water and give it to them. Another medicine you can use is sorbitrate. Place the tablet under the patient’s tongue. You can give up to three sorbitrates in five minutes. Both aspirin and sorbitrate have anti-coagulant properties and help dissolve blood clots. However DO NOT GIVE sorbitrate to people who have low blood pressure or/and are sweating profusely.’ Apart from that, you shouldn’t let them lie down flat. Ask them to either recline on a sofa or sit upright. Another thing you can do is ask them to cough out. This helps force air into their lungs. Also, a heart attack victim should be taken to the hospital as soon as possible — at least within one hour (also known as the ‘golden hour’). Since, during a heart attack, a person’s heart stops pumping blood it can damage the person’s organs. Like a stroke, a heart attack has a golden period during which recovery is faster. Quick tips for heart attack patients Never neglect a person with chest pain Make the person sit in a slightly reclined position Move the person to a more ventilated area Administer aspirin or sorbitrate If person is sweating profusely or pulse is low do not administer sorbitrate Ask the person to cough Seek immediate medical attention A person suffering from a heart attack should receive medical care within one hour.

For masterbation: You must understand that excess of everything is bad. Same is true with masturbition. Control masturbition. Do not do more than a once in a week otherwise it may cause some weakness. You may take cap. Shilajit & tab. Chandraprabha bhati. One tab. Each morning & evening & also take dhatu paushtik churan one spoon morning & evening. All 3 with hot milk for 3-4 months.

About Stroke

BDS, Master of Hospital Administration
Dentist, Patna
About Stroke

Stroke has a new indicator! read and pass on.
 
Stroke has a new indicator 
Stroke - they now have a fourth indicator, the tongue

Stroke: remember the 1st three letters.
S. T. R. 
Stroke identification:

During a bbq, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics. She said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6: 00 pm jane passed away.) she had suffered a stroke at the bbq. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke. Totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. 

Recognizing a stroke

Thank god for the sense to remember the'3' steps, str. Read and learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three (3) simple questions:
S *ask the individual to smile.
T *ask the person to talk and speak a simple sentence (coherently)
(i. E. Chicken soup)
R *ask him or her to raise both arms.

If he or she has trouble with any one of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New sign of a stroke -------- stick out your tongue!

Note: another'sign' of a stroke is this: ask the person to'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is
'crooked, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you also?

Ayurveda and Whooping Cough

Ayurveda and Whooping Cough

Whooping cough lasts up to 10 weeks, makes you vomit, and can even be fatal. True or False? Take this quiz to find out.

1. Whooping cough or pertussis could become serious and can even be fatal.

  1. True

  2. False

Answer - A: True

While whooping cough may be painful and last for a long time in adults, it rarely becomes fatal. However, in infants and children less than a year old, it can be fatal. If you think your child is suffering from whooping cough, you will need to take action to reduce its effects. Aloe Vera is one of the most effective ayurvedic remedies in this case. Mix equal parts of Aloe Vera juice and honey to make a mixture. Take a teaspoonful of this mixture and have it twice daily to reduce the symptoms and also fight the infection.

2. Which amongst the following oils is a great remedy for whooping cough in Ayurveda?

  1. Mustard oil

  2. Sesame oil

  3. Coconut oil

  4. Almond oil

Answer – D: Almond oil

Almonds, apart from being a great source of varied nutrition, are also a potent weapon in fighting cholesterol. Almonds also have many other properties that can help with fighting infections. These can be useful in treating the symptoms of whooping cough. Mix 10 drops of onion juice and 10 drops of garlic juice with 5 drops of almond oil. Take this mixture three times daily for a few days and you should see results quickly.

3. Whooping cough is a viral infection.

  1. True

  2. False

Answer - B: False

Whooping cough is actually a bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis. It usually spreads through droplets in the air from an infected person to an uninfected person. It can also spread by touching surfaces where the infected droplets fall. Cough can be quite extreme and painful not only in children but among adults as well. Drink honey mixed with boiling water as a beverage akin to tea. This is a great ayurvedic remedy to soothe the symptoms, especially if you have a very sore throat. It also helps to cure whooping cough quicker.

4. One of the common symptoms of whooping cough among the following is:

  1. Fainting

  2. Vomiting

  3. A & B

  4. None of the above

Answer – C: A & B

Whooping cough is especially dangerous because when you start coughing, it puts so much stress on your body that you may end up vomiting or even fainting. Garlic is a great ayurvedic remedy that can help reduce the symptoms of whooping cough. It contains ‘allicin’ which has superb antibacterial properties. Make a paste by crushing a few cloves of garlic. Filter this through a sieve and get the juice extracted. Drink a teaspoonful of this juice thrice every day and you should see remarkable results quickly.

5. If no action is taken, whooping cough may last up to 10 weeks.

  1. True

  2. False

Answer - A: True

Whooping cough is also sometimes referred to as the 100-day cough as it can last for up to 10 weeks. This can be a really painful time for the patient. Known as ‘Dushta Kasa’ in Ayurveda, there are many effective remedies that can counter it and cure it much quicker. Remedies include castor oil mixed with milk, ginger and honey mixes among others. The best thing is to consult an Ayurveda Practitioner for proper and exact remedies tailor made for your condition.

I always have a serious headache in the morning when I wake up? What should I do?
Headache is a symptom rather than a disease and may be caused by high blood pressure, insomnia, weak eyesight, sinusitis, hunger, aneamia, listening to loud music, studying in improper light, emotional strain, overwork, constipation, and flatulence. Try to wake up early and do morning walk daily. Rule out the cause and get proper treatment accordingly and take 1 tab nucoxia-p for headache.

Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent.

Following could be the causes: * tingling (vibration) can be caused by a disorder of the neck spine, disorders of the elbow, wrist, hand or the fingers itself. The other causes may include: *overuse of the wrist * constant or repeating leaning on the wrist: (cyclists, crutches users, weight lifters.) * hypoglycemia can cause shaking/shivering hands - check on your sugar levels * hypothyroidism could cause vibration in hands/fingers * too much caffeine can make your hands shake - caffeine is present in coffee, tea and soft drinks. * do not skip meals - not having your meal on time or starving, fasting leads to shivering. Note: do not delay and consult your doctor to diagnose the problem. Your doctor will discuss your medical history and general health. He may also ask about your work, your activities, and what medications you are taking. Regards!
