Who hath woe? Who hath sorrow? Who hath contentions?


Who hath babbling? Who hath wounds without cause?
Who hath redness of eyes?
They that tarry long at the wine, they that go to seek mixed
wine.
Look not thou upon the wine when it is red,
when it giveth his colour in the cup,
when it moveth itself aright
At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.

What are the signs that some has been sunburned?


________________________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________________________

Examiners Sig. ________________________________________ Date __________________

Treatment of Sunburn

Apply a cold compress


Take cold showers
Take ample fluids
Do not break blisters

Mild sunburn usually responds to treatment with calamine lotion. Care should always be taken to
avoid prolonged exposure.

More Severe Complications of Heat Exposure


Our bodies normally regulate temperature by the evaporation of sweat from the skin. Overexposure to heat conditions will result in cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.
Overleaf is a table that lists some of the signs and symptoms as well as methods of control for
persons who are suffering from heat crams, heat exhaustion or a heat stroke.

Signs &
Symptoms

Heat Cramps

Heat
Exhaustion
Heat Stroke
(near to death)

Control

Weakness, dizziness and


fatigue muscle spasms.

Gently stretch affected muscles.


Apply cold packs. Drinking
water with added sat (teaspoon
to liter)

Headaches, cramps and


sweating freely. Rapid pulse
and breathing.

Sponge patient with cold water.


Place ice packs on affected
muscles. Drinking water with
added salt (teaspoon to liter)

A very dangerous condition.


No sweating. Body completely
dehydrates. Temperature rises
rapidly. Vomiting and nausea

Remove clothing. Wrap in wet


sheet. Cool by all means
possible. Place in recovery
position.

ACTIVITY
On the line next to the statements below, write an A if you agree with the statement or D if you
disagree with the statement. The statements deal with the treatment of sunburn.

What is a Restrictive Bandage?


________________________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________________________

Constrictive bandages must only be used in emergencies to control bleeding in amputations and in
certain treatments for marine stings. Suitable materials are necktie, strip of cloth and wide rubber
tubing. Unsuitable materials are shoe laces, electric cord or rope.
Why do you think that shoe laces, electronic cord or rope would be an unsuitable material to use for
constrictive bandages?
________________________________________________________________________________________________

Examiners Sig. ________________________________________ Date __________________

A restrictive bandage is the type now used by the first aider to treat snake bites. To do this, a
bandage is placed firmly on the limb to restrict the flow of lymph in the lymph glands. A crepe
bandage or elastic bandage 75 to 100mm wide is best.

g.

Snake Bite
It is now known that the venom travels in the lymph glands. The pressure of a
restrictive bandage can have the effect of slowing down absorption of the
poison into the body.

Although it is simple to distinguish between the bite of a venomous and non-venomous snake, it is
best to treat all bites as those of venomous snakes. In any case puncture marks may be difficult to
detect.
What are some of the signs that could indicate that someone is poisoned from a snake bite?

Other Bites and Stings


Red Back Spider. Usually bites only when touched. They can be often on the
underside of unsewered toilets. They leave small red marks on hands, feet,
genitals or buttocks. The redness spreads to other parts. Perspiration begins at
bitten part and then spreads. Later there may be nausea, vomiting, dizziness,
muscular spasm, profuse sweating and faintness. Bite usually felt as sharp sting.

Male

Funnel Web Spider. Bites mostly at night. They are very aggressive. They can be
found in burrows, rock crevices and post holes. If bitten, you would feel pain at
site of the bite, and then it would spread. Local muscular
twitching will result and the victim salivates freely within 15
Female
minutes. Profuse sweating is also accompanied. There will be
spasm of larynx with difficulty in breathing.

Treat as for snake bite for both spider bites

Note:
These are examples of spiders from one region. While all
spiders are poisonous, most do not affect or interact with man in a
manner to consider them as such. There are a very few, however, in
all regions that can cause severe conditions. Know those of your
region WELL!
What are some other harmful spiders in your region?

Ticks. Tend to secrete in body crevices. The may cause paralysis especially in
smaller children. Paralysis affects lower and upper limbs and muscles of
respiration, and facial muscles. You should apply turpentine to kill tick. If in the
ear, apply oil. Seek medical aid for serum. If no aid available, remove tick by
levering with open scissors or remove with cotton. Do not squeeze the tick.
Leeches. They are found in damp spots usually when camping out. Salt or a lighted match will
help remove leech. You may bleed freely. Bathe area with soap and warm water.
Bee, Hornet and Wasp Stings. Remove the sting of bee. Do not squeeze it, as more
venom is injected. Pull sideways with fingernail. Wipe the area clean and apply a cold
compress and ice.

Mosquito, Sandfly and Ant Bites. Avoid heat. Use cold water or ice cubes. Ammonia,
Bicarbonate of Soda, or Menthol, will be helpful. Calamine lotion or zinc cream is recommended.
Plants. (E.G. Stringing Nettle) Area affected should be washed with warm soapy water to rid part of
clinging portions. Apply ice cubes and soothing cream after washing.
Heat Rash. Can be relieved by the application of ice-cold normal saline solution.
Jellyfish. Sting resembles whip marks, weald or goose pimples. Mild burning to intense pain may
be felt. Excessive stinging may result in cardiac or respiratory failure. Minor stings may give
backache, chest pains, vomiting and difficulty in breathing.
Bluebottle. Apply vinegar to wash off tentacles.
Other Marine Stings. Marine creatures sting by injection or absorption of venom through the skin.
Their effects range from discomfort to rapid collapse and death. Try to sustain life and seek medical
aid urgently. Constrictive bandage for blue ringed octopus work well. Remember A.B.D.C.
procedure. When venom is injected through the skin, skin often changes to red, limbs become
swollen, profuse bleeding occurs and circulatory and respiratory collapse is common.
Shark Attack. Immediately control hemorrhage by packing wound with clothing or
towels. Elevate if possible. Summon urgent medical aid.

i.

Exposure to Cold Conditions

If the victim can remain dry then severe conditions can be tolerated, but when cold, wet and windy
conditions are experienced, there is danger.
Exposure to the cold can have the same effect as a concussion with all normal activities slowedslow speech, slow movements, impaired vision, cramps and unreasonable behaviour. The pulse rate
increases and the respiration rate increases.
You should protect the patient from the cold, and warm them by wrapping them up in dry clothing
or a sleeping bag, and if necessary seek medical attention.
Hypothermia. Is a dangerous lowering of the body temperature and can be brought on by cold, wet
conditions, swimming in water too cold, or going out in cold, wet conditions without an adequate
head covering. The elderly and sick may become unconscious. Treat as for exposure and give warm,
sweet drinks if conscious. NEVER USE HOT WATER BOTTLES.

Minor Frostbite. Is when there is superficial damage and pain is severe. Warm the area as quickly as
possible by natural means.
Deep Frostbite. Is when there is deep tissue damage. The area is white, waxy and painless. Do not
attempt to thaw the area out, except under medical supervision.
Accidental Immersion in Cold Water. Can best be treated by immersion in a warm bath 42 o
Centigrade, or alternatively allowing the person to warm slowly in a sleeping bag preferably with a
warm companion.
