How Foreign Aid Can Foster Democratization In Authoritarian Regimes

I explained to the girls that every time they feel their pulse this is their heart contracting and pushing blood throughout their body. You can also elect to make your own, although this may work out to be more expensive and time consuming as each item is purchased individually. Cover the painful or injured eye with a paper cup or eye shield until you can get medical help. I did not cover a baby choking because I felt this might be too difficult of a concept for the girls at their age. Next we discussed choking and I created a large foam board diagram to depict the purpose of the epiglottis. We discussed how to dislodge an item if you were home alone or with a friend. Then we identified the location of a friend standing behind them and creating a fist with your dominant hand and wrapping your other hand around the fist. Once the pulse was identified at their wrist every girl was given a small heart tattoo using a Sharpie marker to mark their pulse location. I described the Heimlich Maneuver and the girls were asked to pinpoint the location just above the belly button to place their fist.

I was very strict that the girls could not “practice” on their friends because mimicking the “In & Up” motion can hurt. 18 species are found on the land, and 22 species of snakes can be found in the sea surrounding Malaysia. Skills are important, and they should be practiced and perfected. In the days ahead, I’ll also be discussing important skills to have when the SHTF. In this course you will learn the essential skills when dealing with accidents, emergencies and sudden illness. It makes for some great excitement and will have everyone looking forward to the first time you try out that new tent or camper. But, summer is a time that makes those tools and resources more important than ever. There is a mass of information there about Zoos, working in Zoos and more. Online tutorials provide tips to understand hazardous material information. A weak pulse means a person may be dehydrated and have less blood volume in their body or could mean they have experienced blood loss.

The girls were amazed how the heart quickens to rush blood to your body parts when you work out. Finally the girls were asked to count their pulse for 30 seconds, we multiplied this number times 2 to get their heart rate for a minute. When you are scared your body’s natural reaction is to increase your heart rate. Basic Life Support (BLS) includes recognition of signs of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), heart attack, stroke and foreign-body airway obstruction (FBAO). In this guide, you will learn many basic first aid steps, that should be taken should an individual suffer from a burn in your presence. It is important when doing this exercise that you stress that the girls palpate for the pulse gently, if you push down too hard with your fingers, you will cut off the vein and the pulse. I also talked about doing research to set a good foundation for learning what it takes to be prepared.

In a short discussion about shock and blood loss we talked about finding a pulse. You should have your car regularly serviced, and you yourself should be able to check the condition of the tires, shock absorbers, oil, brakes, windshield wipers, and lights. This was a simple exercise, but the girls loved walking out to their parent’s car with the slings. So we created Cravat Slings on one another. Next I created small booklets (Cheat Sheets) for the girls using 4×6 index cards, cut in half. Say, for example, you get a deep cut. Now is the time for America to get involved. I would have loved to talk about insect bites, burns etc, but time got away from us. You can expect to learn about instant cures for burns, stings, bites, choking, wounds, fevers, hypothermia, allergic reactions, overheating, poison response, broken bone, injury prevention, and nervous system emergencies as well in first aid course. If the spider that has bitten you happens to still be near by, you can easily catch it to identify that it is indeed not a poisonous spider.
