Basic First Aid Advice Blog From First4Aid Coventry
Have you ever wondered if you should give ill people a ‘hot toddy’, or if squeezing lemon onto a wound will help or harm a person?
First4Answers is simple, you write in with a first aid question and we will reply with the answer- who says that you need to go on a course to find out what you need to know!!
Q) Is it true that you should lay a pregnant person on one specific side of their body as you could otherwise ham their baby?
A) The hepatic vein that supplies blood to the baby and around the body lies on the right hand side of the body. Whilst no complications have been medically publicised, it is preferred to lay a pregnant lady on her left hand side, simply to avoid any possible complications.
Q) Why do people go cold and sweaty when they are in shock? Don’t people sweat when they are hot?
A) When you are in shock your body tries to look after it’s vital organs such as the brain, heart and kidneys. To make these organs a priority, the body shrinks the blood vessels going to other organs (like the gut and skin). This reduction in blood makes you feel cold and sweaty to touch.
