Self-Care at Home

· Call emergency for immediate medical attention any time a person has symptoms of shock. Do not wait for symptoms to worsen before calling for help. Stay with the person until help arrives.

· While waiting for help or on the way to the emergency room, check the person's airway, breathing and circulation (the ABCs). If the person is breathing on his or her own, continue to check breathing every 2 minutes until help arrives.

· Do NOT move a person who has a known or suspected spinal injury.

· Have the person lie down on his or her back with the feet elevated above the head (if raising the legs causes pain or injury, keep the person flat) to increase blood flow to vital organs. Do not raise the head.

· Keep the person warm and comfortable. Loosen tight clothing and cover them with a blanket.

· Do not give fluids by mouth, even if the person complains of thirst. There is a risk of sudden loss of consciousness.

· Give appropriate first aid for any injuries. Direct pressure should be applied to any wounds that are bleeding significantly.
