If you suspect a concussion, the procedure should be the following:
- Call an ambulance.
- Before the paramedics arrive, the person should be left in a semi-sitting position with their trouser belt loosened.
- If the affected person is feeling thirsty, he should be given some sweet tea or water.
- Don’t use aspirin for headaches.
Don’t try to constantly make the sick person feel more comfortable by supplying more cushions. He should stay as motionless and as relaxed as possible.
It’s not recommended to throw back your head during a nosebleed. To stop the bleeding, you should keep the bleeding nostril pinched for 10-15 minutes.
It’s necessary to outline that many of us are used to blocking the bleeding nostril with cotton.This method works, but you still shouldn’t throw your head back.
If the bleeding lasts for over half an hour, seek medical help.
