Helping a Victim in Shock


Helping a Victim in Shock

Certain injuries are attended with what is known as shock. Usually the degree of shock is proportionate to the extent of the injury, though not always so. Often seemingly trivial injuries produce a fatal shock. The symptoms are cold, clammy skin, face very pale and pinched, eyes widely dilated and staring, pulse rapid and irregular, little or no pain, even from severe injuries. The patient retains his mental faculties but loses the power to originate, answering when spoken to but usually volunteering no statements of his own.

The treatment consists in lowering the head and elevating the extremities. Wrap the patient in hot blankets and place hot water bottles about him, give brandy, or what is as good, hot water; inject 1/30 gr. strychnia every fifteen minutes for three doses.

The symptoms from loss of blood are very much the same as from shock and luckily respond to the same treatment. In addition, if there chances to be a fountain syringe in the camp, give rectal enemas of hot normal salt solution, which can be made by dissolving a teaspoonful of common salt in a quart of sterile water. In some way this solution seems to take the place of the blood lost. A hot application over the heart is also valuable, as are mustard drafts to the spine.

Moody, Charles Stuart. Backwoods Surgery & Medicine. New York: Outing Pub., 1916. Print.
