Foot fungus!

Fungi can be edible or detrimental to health. Businesses that buy in business become a mistake in business. But, sometimes, people pick mushrooms without knowing how to differentiate the good ones from the poisonous ones, or the homemade ones, with the risk of poisoning badly.

Among the most harmful fungi is the Amanita Phalloides. The Amanita Muscaria and the Amanita Pantherina produce sudden symptoms, but they are not mortal child.

Symptoms of muscarinic poisoning (caused by amanita muscaria).
 Presence of intense sweating and salivation.
 Vomiting and diarrhea.
 Slow pulse.
 The affected person has visual disorders, dizziness or cramps. In cases, lung edema may occur.
Incubation has a maximum duration of 4 hours.

Symptoms of phalloidal intoxication (caused by amanita phalloides).
The person feels a general malaise.
 Renal injury occurs.
Incubation within 24 hours or more.
 Presence of jaundice after 3 days.
 In 60% of cases, death occurs.

What do we do?

 We cause vomiting.
 We provide fluids to prevent dehydration.
 We require urgent medical attention.

Dislocations

If, after a fall or blow, a limb or a joint, present an abnormal appearance and can not, possibly it is a fracture or a dislocation. The latter is a rupture of the ligaments and the joint capsule, accompanied by the displacement of the bones from their place. The most common things are chains, knees and wrists. When it comes to a person suffering a dislocation, we should keep in mind some general issues.
 If the wound is bleeding, we cover them with a clean cloth or cloth.
We should not manipulate the bone or the corresponding joint. Only the doctor or the specialist can do it.
While we wait for medical assistance, we must keep the injured person warm and quiet.
 We should not provide food or water, in case emergency surgery is required.

The bone that has been displaced from its joint does not spontaneously return to its place; A maneuver is necessary that must be carried out by a specialist or a person who separates.

What do we do?

In the event that we have to wait for the doctor for a prolonged period, it is convenient to immobilize the joint, using bandages and splints.

Dislocation in the knee.

We fix the articulation in the position in which it is. If it is flexed, we leave it like this, we can also adjust the leg along its entire length, placing it under a board, with pads between it and the knee, and another under the heel.

Shoulder dislocations.

It is not about reducing unless you mar.
1. Place a rolled cloth in the armpit of the injured shoulder.
2.Then, we use an oblique sling to immobilize the arm: the vertex of the triangle is under the elbow, and the other two ends are passed in front of the forearm on the healthy shoulder.

It is convenient to control the pulse: if it does not exist, we must urgently call the doctor.

Danger of fracture.

How has an associated fracture occurred? Bearing in mind that, in dislocations, the ligaments that support the joint are elongated or elongated, when the tendon is stretched very sharply, it can organize a part of the bone in which it is inserted, giving rise to a tearing fracture.

Symptom.

 When there is a dislocation, an obvious deformity is seen in the joint area, produced by the bone outside the position, and by ligaments and circulating tissues, which also has the consequences.
 The person experiences intense pain to the touch.
 Movement inability.
