Saving a life in a medical emergency Heart attacks and strokes Heart attack is our country’s No. 1 cause of death. Stroke is the third-leading cause of death after diseases of the heart and cancer. These seven simple suggestions can help you reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke. ➤ Get your blood pressure checked. ➤ Don’t smoke cigarettes. ➤ Recognize and treat diabetes. ➤ Don’t drink too much alcohol. ➤ Be physically active. ➤ Eat a healthful diet. ➤ Have regular medical checkups.

Know the signals of heart attacks ➤ Uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes or that goes away and comes back ➤ Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck or arms ➤ Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea, or shortness of breath Not all of these signs occur in every heart attack. If you notice one or more of these signs, don’t wait. Get medical help right away.

Know what to do ➤ Recognize the signals and act at once. Don’t deny or ignore what’s happening. ➤ Have the victim stop activity and sit or lie down. ➤ If the pain lasts more than a few minutes, call your local emergency number. Or if you can get the victim to the hospital quicker, do so. If you think you’re having a heart attack, don’t drive. Ask someone to drive you. Go to the nearest medical facility with 24-hour emergency cardiac care. ➤ Give CPR if it’s necessary. – Reproduced with permission. ©Heart Attack and Stroke: Signals and Action, 1996; © Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation,

Strokes You’re at the greatest risk of having a stroke if you have high blood pressure, heart disease, a history of mini-strokes, or a combination of these. The signs of stroke are: ➤ sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm, or leg on one side of the body ➤  sudden dimness or loss of vision, particularly in one eye ➤ loss of speech or trouble talking or understanding speech ➤ sudden, severe headaches with no apparent cause ➤  unexplained dizziness, unsteadiness or sudden falls, especially along with any of the previous symptoms If you think someone is having a stroke: ➤ Immediately call your local emergency number or drive the person to the nearest hospital offering emergency medical care.

Suspect a breathing emergency if the victim: ➤ is breathing unusually slow or fast. ➤ has breaths that are unusually deep or shallow. ➤ is gasping for breath. ➤ is wheezing, gurgling, or making high-pitched noises. ➤ has unusually moist skin. ➤ is flushed, pale or if victim’s skin is bluish. ➤ is short of breath. ➤ feels dizzy or lightheaded. ➤ feels pain in chest or tingling in the hands or feet. When breathing is too fast, too slow, noisy, or painful, call for an ambulance immediately.

Fire safety

Protect yourself when the heat is on Thousands of people die or are injured in home fires each year. Fires can happen in any home. Understanding how to prevent, detect early and escape fires can save lives and minimize injury and property loss.

Fire Safety Tips ➤ Install smoke detectors on each level of your home. Consider installing an automatic fire sprinkler system. ➤ Make sure there are two clear escape routes from each room and that everyone knows these escape routes and has practiced using them. ➤ Fire is unpredictable. Even though smoke detectors give you an early warning, and, thanks to your escape

plan, you know exactly what to do, you still must be ready for the unexpected.

Fire Survival Tips Closed doors provide protection against heat and smoke, providing more time for escape. Make sure each person can hear smoke alarms, which should be installed in bedrooms and throughout the house. ➤ Test doors before opening them. You can easily be overcome by heat, smoke or flames rushing into a room. During a fire, before opening any door along your escape route, feel it with the back of your hand. If the door is warm, use an alternate escape route. ➤ Use windows as

alternate escape routes. If you are on the first or second floor, you can probably drop safely to the ground. Back out, feet first, on your stom-

ach. Hold onto the window sill with both hands, lowering yourself as far as possible. Then drop to the ground, bending your knees to cushion your landing. Lower small children from windows before dropping out yourself. Lower a child as far as possible without risking falling out yourself and then drop the child to the ground. If you go out first and the child refuses to jump, you can’t get back inside to help. If your window is more than two stories from the ground, you should not jump. Wait to be rescued. Stand at the window and wave a large, bright-colored cloth. Stuff clothes or towels to seal cracks under doors to keep smoke from entering the room. ➤ Crawl low under smoke. During a fire, superheated

air and toxic gases fill the room from the top down. Some toxic fumes settle in a layer near the floor. This leaves a “safety zone” of breathable air about 12 to 24 inches above the floor. ➤ Call the fire department. Unless you are trapped inside, it is too dangerous to call from a burning structure. Call after you have escaped, giving the address of the fire first. ➤ If your clothes catch fire, stop, drop, and roll. If your clothes start to burn, stop where you are. Drop to the ground. Cover your face with your hands. Roll over and over to smother the flames. If others’ clothes catch

fire, knock them down (if they don’t drop themselves) and make them roll over or throw a heavy blanket or rug on them to smother flames. ➤ Cool a burn. Treat burns immediately. Never put butter, ointments or any other form of grease on a burn. Grease insulates the skin, keeping in heat and making the injury worse. Cool burns by holding the burned skin under cool running water for 10 to 15 minutes. If the burned area is charred or blistered, the victim needs immediate medical attention. –  Reprinted with permission from Fire in Your Home: Prevention & Survival.

A well-stocked first aid kit can be a lifesaver A well-stocked first aid kit is a handy thing to have. To be prepared for emergencies, keep a first aid kit in your home and in your automobile. Carry a first aid kit with you or know where you can find one when you are hiking, biking, camping or boating. Find out the location of first aid kits where you work. First aid kits come in many shapes and sizes. You can buy one from a drug store, the RedCross.org store, your local American Red Cross chapter may sell them, or you can make your own kit.

Some kits are designed for special activities such as hiking, camping or boating. Whether you buy a first aid kit or put one together, make sure it has all the items you may need. Include any personal items, such as medications and emergency phone numbers, or other items your physician may suggest. Check the kit regularly. Make sure the flashlight batteries work. Check expiration dates and replace any used or out-of-date contents. The contents of a first aid kit can be dangerous in the hands of young children. Store your first aid kit in a secure place out of the reach of young children.

Here are suggestions for the contents of a first aid kit: ➤ Activated Charcoal (use only if instructed by Poison Control Center)

There are dangers lurking in every home. Some of them are obvious, others not so much. Children have an uncanny knack for happening upon dangerous items. Their inquisitive nature often involves taking notice of something — whether friend or foe — and exploring it further by putting the item in their mouth. Naturally, with household poisons, such curiosity is a recipe for disaster. Poisonous materials are not just the chemical cleaning products you may have or the items you stash away in the garage. Even some seemingly innocuous things can be poisonous, especially to young children. According to statistics published by the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, an estimated one in five children will be exposed to a potential poison before age 5. More than half of all poisoning cases involve children younger than 5. Estimates suggest nearly 70 percent of all poisoning incidents are preventable. Of all the areas of the home where poisoning may occur, the kitchen ranks the highest for potential danger. To help prevent accidents, here are some of the most common — and not so common —  poisons that may be in or around a home.

Kitchen Many people store cleaning products and other potential poisons under the kitchen sink, in

Bathroom Bathrooms might house products that are supposed to help you feel better but could prove toxic to children if consumed in high doses. ➤ prescription and nonprescription medication ➤ aspirin: considered unsafe for all those younger than 19 because of the possibility of a serious condition called Reye’s Syndrome, one of the leading causes of accidental poisoning in the United States ➤ vitamins (high levels of iron and other vitamins and minerals can be haz-

ardous to children ➤ mouthwash and toothpaste ➤ toilet, shower cleaners ➤ nail polish and remover; artificial nail glue ➤ plumbing products ➤ topical anesthetics, such as to treat sunburn ➤ old-fashioned remedies: These are items that are still kept around, even though they’re not medically recommended. For example, boric acid is poisonous if swallowed or absorbed through the skin, and is no more effective as an eyewash than a mild saline solution. Liniments containing oil of wintergreen are poisonous, and their minty smell makes them attractive to children. Camphorated oil and ammoniated mercury ointment can also poison children.

Other Some items may seem harmless, but can do harm if touched or ingested. For example, mercury thermometers are no longer sold for fever detection. However, some people still own them. Mercury is highly toxic if consumed or absorbed through the skin. Some plants, such as poinsettias, mistletoe, and laurel, are poisonous to humans and animals when ingested.

Hurricane Season 2012

Hurricanes: Be prepared The 2012 hurricane season got off to a fast start, with two tropical storms forming before the official start of the season June 1. One, Beryl, soaked southeast Georgia in late May. Even so, experts are predicting a near-normal year for hurricanes in the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico. Although our area is not directly on the coast, Bulloch County and the surrounding area can be adversely affected by the approach and landfall of a hurricane. The threat of flooding rains, high winds and tornadoes always exists for us anytime a storm comes inland, as the past has proven. So while the threat of a direct hit is not likely for the area, minimizing the danger of these massive storms requires preparation. After all, hurricane conditions not only threaten our property, they can threaten our lives. Here’s what you can do to prepare for such an emergency.

Town of Brooklet, Georgia Home of the famous

Peanut Festival

Know your hurricane terminology. Watch: Hurricane conditions are possible in the specified area of the watch, usually within 48 hours. Warning: Hurricane conditions are expected in the specified area of the warning, usually within 36 hours.

Prepare a personal evacuation plan. ➤ Identify ahead of time where you would go if you are told to evacuate. Choose several places: a friend’s home in another town, a motel or a shelter. ➤ Keep handy the telephone numbers of these places and a road map of your locality. You may need to take alternative or unfamiliar routes if major roads are closed or clogged. ➤ Listen to NOAA Weather Radio or local radio or TV stations for evacuation instructions. If advised to evacuate, do so immediately.

Tornadoes

Are you ready for a tornado? Here’s what you can do to prepare.

Prepare a Home Tornado Plan

Assemble a disaster supplies kit. Include the following items in your kit: ➤ first aid kit and essential medications ➤ canned food and can opener ➤ at least three gallons of water per person ➤ protective clothing, rainwear and bedding or sleeping bags ➤ battery-powered radio, flashlight and extra batteries ➤ special items for infant, elderly or disabled family members ➤ written instructions for how to turn off gas and water if authorities advise you to do so (Remember, you’ll need a professional to turn them back on.)

Preparing for the winds

E m e r g e n cy N u m b e r s :

you to do so. ➤ Complete preparation activities. ➤ If you are not advised to evacuate, stay indoors away from windows. ➤ Be aware, the calm “eye” is deceptive; the storm is not over. The worst part of the storm will happen once the eye passes over and the winds come from the opposite direction. Trees, shrubs, buildings and other objects damaged by the first winds can be broken or destroyed by the second winds with force opposite the first winds. ➤ Be alert for tornadoes. Tornadoes can happen during and after a hurricane passes over. Remain indoors, in the center of your home, in a closet or bathroom without windows. – Courtesy of the American Red Cross. All rights reserved in all countries.

Install hurricane shutters or precut 3/4-inch marine plywood for each window of your home. Install anchors for the plywood and predrill holes in the plywood so that you can put it up quickly. ➤ Make trees more wind resistant by removing diseased or damaged limbs, then strategically removing branches so that wind can blow through. Know what to do when a hurricane watch is issued. ➤ Listen to NOAA Weather Radio or local radio or TV stations for up-to-date storm information. ➤ Fill your car’s gas tank. ➤ Recheck manufactured home tie-downs. ➤ Check batteries and stock up on canned food, first aid supplies, drinking water and medications. Identify what to do when a hurricane warning is issued. ➤ Listen to the advice of local officials, and leave if they tell

➤ Pick a place where family members can gather if a tornado is headed your way. It could be your basement or, if there is no basement, a center hallway, bathroom, or closet on the lowest floor. Keep this place uncluttered. ➤ If you are in a high-rise building, you may not have enough time to go to the lowest floor. Pick a place in a hallway in the center of the building. ➤ Assemble a Disaster Supplies Kit. ➤ Conduct periodic tornado drills so everyone remembers what to do when a tornado is approaching. Stay tuned for storm warnings. ➤ Listen to your local radio and TV stations for updated storm information. ➤ Know what tornado watch and warning mean. A tornado watch means a tornado is possible in your area. A tornado warning means a tornado has been sighted and may be headed for your area. Go to safety immediately. ➤ Tornado watches and warnings are issued your county emergency management agency. When a tornado watch is issued: ➤Listen to local radio and TV stations for further updates. ➤ Be alert to changing weather conditions. Blowing debris or the sound of an approaching tornado may alert you. Many people say it sounds like a freight train. When a tornado warning is issued: ➤ If you are inside, go to the safe place you picked to protect yourself from glass and other flying objects. The tornado may be approaching your area. ➤ If you are outside, hurry to the basement of a nearby sturdy building or lie flat.

Avoiding DIY project injuries

Tough economic times call for even tougher measures — and for many homeowners this means getting hands-on with home improvement projects. Although do-it-yourself projects can save money in theory, they also may result in a trip to the hospital if safety precautions aren’t followed. According to recent statistics, 85 percent of homeowners are tackling projects around the house rather than hiring outside contractors. In this difficult economy, emergency rooms are seeing an influx of people coming in with injuries ranging from lacerations to puncture wounds from nail guns. John and Jane Do-It-Yourselfer have easy access to homeimprovement supplies and tools at the local home center. He or she also may be inspired by any of the myriad shows on television instructing individuals to give renovations a try. However, many homeowners are not schooled in proper safety procedures or do not know how to use tools correctly. This is a recipe for injury. Common injuries include:

➤ falls from ladders or scaffolding ➤ hand and finger injuries — including amputation — from power saws and grinder/sanders ➤ nail gun injuries; since 1991, these injuries have increased by 200 percent ➤ eye injuries and breathing difficulties

Homeowners should consider the risks of improvements before beginning. They should also take precautions to do improvements in the safest manner possible. ➤ Always read the manufacturers’ safety information and usage guidelines for any tools before the are put to use. ➤ Turn off electrical current to rooms and outlets prior to doing any electrical repairs. ➤ Wear proper safety equipment, including goggles, dust masks or respirators, boots, and gloves. ➤ Store chemicals in a locked cabinet or on a high shelf out of reach of children and pets. ➤ Be cautious of power cords. Always unplug tools and turn off the switches when the item is not in use. If you would like to receive our weekly column send your ➤ Do not climb past the top rung of ladders.
