A shock takes place when the blood vessels and the heart are unable to pump oxygenated blood to all the vital organs in the body.
If there is any discharge from the ears, nose or mouth, tilt the casualty’s head so that he does not choke on the fluids. Look for other injuries such as cuts and wounds and administer basic first aid to treat them. If the casualty is feeling thirsty, simply moisten the lips as you should NOT give him anything to eat or drink. Reassure the casualty that help is on its way and make sure you and the casualty remain calm.
To learn more about recognizing and treat shock enrol in St Mark James first aid training with a provider near you. Most people who suffer anaphylaxis may carry an Epipen.  If they have not responded in 5 minutes you can give a second one. The lower part has a needle guard.  It covers the needle after the person has been injected.
If that’s the case and they turn the Epipen over, and place their thumb over the orange end, they will inject their thumb.  It may seem hilarious but adrenaline does constrict the blood vessels and they can suffer from something similar to frostbite.


Write down the time that you gave the injection.  If there is no response within 5 minutes you can give a second one.
We recommend that you undertake an initial assessment of the safety risks in your environment to determine the first aid equipment and training you require.
In workplaces, it is important to have first aid signage so that employees can easily find the first aid equipment. The National General Certificate is the most widely held health and safety qualification in the UK with over 100,000 people having gained the award since it was launched in 1989. Managers, supervisors and staff from all types of organisations who need a broad understanding of health and safety issues.
Many larger organisations choose the NEBOSH National General Certificate as a key part of their supervisors’ or management development programme.  By ensuring that line managers have a sound understanding of the principles of risk management they build an effective safety culture in the company. Members of the Armed Forces can take advantage of their Enhanced Learning Credits to fund the remainder. Many illnesses and injuries include shock as one of their symptoms, regardless of the fact that it is common condition; do not take it lightly as it may lead to an emergency situation. Occurs due to reduction of blood or fluids in the body as a result of heavy bleeding, external or internal injuries. The abnormal enlargement of the blood vessels causes the pooling in of blood and reduction of blood pressure.
This is the most common form of shock that occurs due to certain emotions such as feeling of immense joy, fear, anxiety, grief or anger.


Cover the casualty with a blanket and elevate the feet above head level—unless they are fractured.
If you are not very sure about the injuries, allow the person to continue remaining flat on the ground—especially if you suspect his neck, back or head is injured—do not move him at all. Remove any wet clothing and allow the casualty to lie down on warm blankets as well, if possible. For example, if you have boiling hot water or chemicals that could cause burns, you should consider having a burns module in your first aid kit.
Fainting is a common example as it occurs due to blood pooling in while the person stands—falling allows the blood to rush back to the head and hence, problem solved. Many people take the NEBOSH National General Certificate as the basis for a career in health and safety or to improve their employment prospects in other industries.
