Patients who have undergone traumatic situations require emergency department services. Victims of the trauma should be rushed to an A & E Department of a hospital or facility. The golden hour is the first hour after an accident or onset of illness. If surgery and reperfusion are performed within this hour, survival rate of the victim is improved.
- Anxiety and mental anguish-any accident is stress especially when surrounded by water. This can aggravate other pre-existing conditions like asthma, high-blood pressure, diabetes and depression.
- Respiratory diseases-you may develop pneumonia, asthma or bronchitis due to the cold weather at Loch Lomond as you wait for help. You may be treated with antibiotics to calm the symptoms. Inhalers are available and they may be prescribed to you. Those who suffer from severe asthmatic attacks may at times require intensive care with administration of oxygen, theophylline and in some instances steroids. Immediate chest X-rays should be done to assess the illness.
- Heart attack-a patient with heart attack should be directed to a resuscitation unit for immediate treatment. The patient receives oxygen and is closely monitored. If not contra-indicated aspirin, morphine or diamorphine are given to control pain as well as nitroglycelin.
- Cardiac arrest-a patient can be air-lifted by an air ambulance… This is a life-threatening condition and so life support treatment should be given immediately.
