Patient Transport In A Survival Situation

3
Patient-Transport

Without doubt the objective of a medic in survival situations is to transfer the ill or injured person to a nearest modern medical facility. In many scenarios of daily life these facilities might be non-existent. In such situations, one will have to decide whether patient can be treated for his / her medical problem at his / her current location or not. If he /she can’t be treated, one must consider how to transport the patient to nearest possible medical supplies.

It is important to stabilize the patient as much as possible, before deciding whether to move a patient. This means stopping all bleeding, splinting orthopedic injuries, and verifying that the person is breathing normally. If you cannot assure this, consider having a group member get the supplies needed to support the patient before you move them. Have as many helpers available to assist you as you can. The most important thing to remember is that you want to carry out the evacuation with the least trauma to your patient and yourself.

Some Patient Transport Techniques

Stretcher

An important medical supply to have in this circumstance is a stretcher. Many good commercially-produced stretchers are available, but improvised stretchers can be put together without too much effort. Even an ironing board can become an effective transport device. A person with a spinal injury should be rolled onto the stretcher without bending their neck or back if at all possible.

Shirt Stretcher

Other options include taking two long sticks or poles and inserting coats or shirts through them to handle the weight of the victim. If the rescuer grasps both poles, a helper could pull their coat off. This automatically moves the coat onto the poles. Lengths of Paracord or rope can also be crisscrossed to form an effective stretcher.

Pulling A Person To Safety

If you must pull a person to safety, grasp their coat or shirt at the shoulders with both hands, allowing their head to rest on your forearms. You could also place a blanket under the patient, and grasp the end of the blanket near their head and pull. Again, if you are uncertain about the extent of any spinal injuries, do your best to not allow much bending of the body or neck during transport.

Fireman’s Carry

If your patient can be carried, there are various methods available. The “Fireman’s Carry” is effective and keep’s the victim’s torso relatively level and stable. In a squatting or kneeling position, you would grasp the person’s right wrist with your left hand and place it over your right shoulder.

Fireman’s Carry

Keeping your back straight, place your right hand between their legs and around the right thigh. Using your leg muscles to lift, rise up; you should end up with their torso over your back and the right thigh resting over your right shoulder. Their left arm and leg will hang behind your back if you have done it correctly. Adjust their weight so as to cause the least strain.

Pack Strap Carry

Another option for patient transport is the “Pack-Strap Carry”. With your patient behind you, grasp both arms and cross them across your chest. If squatting, keep your back straight and use your legs and back muscles to lift the victim. Bend slightly so that the person’s weight is on your hips and lift them off the ground.

Patient-Transport-Pack-Strap-Carry

If you have the luxury of an assistant, you might consider placing your patient on a chair and carry using the front legs and back of the chair. This constitutes a sitting “stretcher”. Another two person carry involves one rescuer wrapping their arms around the victim’s chest from behind while the second rescuer (facing away from the patient) grabs the legs behind each knee. This is done in a squatting position, using the leg muscles to lift the patient.

It’s important to remember this simple acronym when pulling or carrying a person: B.A.C.K.

  • Back Straight – muscles and discs can handle more load safely when the back is straight.
  • Avoid Twisting – joints can be damaged when twisting.
  • Close to body – avoid reaching to pick up a load; it causes more strain on muscles and joints.
  • Keep Stable – the more rotation and jerking, the more pressure on the discs and muscles.

Natural Hormone Balance And Sleep

3
Hormone Balance

Sleep is as essential to beauty as diet. It is perhaps nature’s most powerful beauty treatment. When you sleep, your body is able to repair, rejuvenate, and balance itself on a cellular level. Sleep is essential for regulating metabolism, detoxifying, repairing muscle, and hormone balance. Specific regenerative hormones are released while you sleep that are not released when you are awake.

Without proper sleep, hormones become imbalanced, cells build up toxic waste, the immune system becomes sluggish, and you get foggy-brained and grumpy as cellular damage begins to occur. You will tend to feel hungry. And also you are more likely to reach for bad carbs, refined sugar, and fried or processed foods.

Conversely, with proper sleep, hormones flourish, energy and productivity increase, your body heals and activates many of its beautifying functions. Also, the mental fog clears, allowing you to make great lifestyle choices and setting the stage for youthful longevity and balanced emotional states.

Sleep Needs?

Although everybody’s sleep needs are different (depending on age, lifestyle, overall health, and other factors). For hormone balance, it is imperative to get the necessary amount of uninterrupted sleep your body requires. Unfortunately, more than a third of American adults do not get nearly enough sleep.

And when they do sleep, they often do not get truly nourishing rest. They have trouble falling asleep—so many of their sleep hours are spent tossing and turning or staring at a screen to try to “turn off” their minds.

Sleep-Wake Cycle

As a gardener, I watch the cycles of growth, development, and rejuvenation with each season, and they remind me strongly of our sleep–wake cycle. In the spring, every cell in plants is actively building, blooming, and preparing to produce fruit. This is like the morning before we wake, when the body is building hormones to take on the day.

In the summer, after plants have prepared to produce fruit by building their cellular structure, they set and ripen their fruit, just like the peak of our activity during the day as we use up energy to accomplish our goals. In the fall, harvest occurs, and preparation begins for resting and repopulating the soil. This is like the evening meal we enjoy before sleep.

In the winter, I “put the garden to bed” by cutting all the dead stuff off the plants, cleaning up the debris, and protecting anything that might need support through the cold winter months. Just like I need to put my garden to bed for the winter for rejuvenation and protection, the body needs to be put to sleep at night.

Conclusion

While sleeping, the body goes to work repairing tissues, manufacturing proteins, growing muscles, secreting hormones, and healing damaged cells. Sleep also allows the body to perform important cleanup (metabolic) processes that remove waste from its cells.
