SITUATIONS, WHEN YOU SHOULD HELP THE VICTIM ON YOUR WAY.
THE BITES OF SNAKES AND SCORPION
As it is known, the rocks and their cracks are suitable for the residence of snakes and scorpions. Sometimes there are cases when we use the rock cracks and that moment they can attack. Then a problem arises. A climber needs an appropriate assistance. After the snake bites, you should look at the wound for finding whether a poisonous snake bites or not. In the case of a poisonous snake or scorpion should first inject anti-shock and anti-pain medicine (intramuscular injection) (venous, if the practitioner knows). Immediately after the injection you should exhaust the poison, applying an ordinary syringe, or through the mouth. In the case of a non-poisonous snake, there is no poison, so also need to exhaust.
These measures will prevent possible complications. It is necessary to down the injured and immediately transfer to the appropriate medical institution showing the first aid.

In rocks in different situations, such as carriages, the fall of the climber may cause serious traumas. In these cases, fractures and large placenta may occur. There are cases when they are accompanied by venous and / or pulse bleeding. During the trauma without bleeding there is need for anesthesia, (intramuscular injection or venous, if the practitioner knows) and if it is possible to keep the limb still. If there is a severe arterial or venous bleeding, it is necessary to stop it with a cord. Then quickly down the victim, show first aid and transfer to the appropriate hospital.
