“Emergency” defines itself as an urgent situation. Anyone on this globe does not know when we get into such condition. Listed below are some helpful tips that can be remembered in an emergency condition. Heart Attacks : Most heart attacks start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often people affected aren’t sure what’s wrong and wait too long before getting help. Immediately call 911 or your emergency response number so an ambulance can be sent for you. Emergency medical services (EMS) staff can begin treatment when they arrive - up to an hour sooner than if someone gets to the hospital by car. Strokes : Strokes are life & death emergencies - every second counts. A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is a “warning stroke” or “mini-stroke” that produces stroke-like symptoms but no lasting damage. Recognizing and treating TIAs may reduce the risk of a major stroke. The usual TIA symptoms are same as those of stroke, only temporary. The short duration of these symptoms and lack of permanent brain injury is the main difference between TIA and a stroke

Heat Exhaustion: Heat exhaustion is the body’s response to an excessive loss of the water and salt, usually through excessive sweating. Elder people, having high blood pressure and those working in a hot environment are more prone to heat exhaustion. If you find any of the signs and symptoms for heart attacks, strokes, heat exhaustion or concussion, then don’t wait to call 911 or your nearest emergency room to get the proper treatment on time, without any delay. Always remember, in life & death emergencies – “every second counts”. Know more about the different types of diseases, their causes, symptoms and cure at http://aokemergencyroom.com/blog/ .
