Violent Shocks

Violent Shocks will sometimes stun a person, and he will remain
unconscious. Untie strings, collars, etc.; loosen anything that is
tight, and interferes with the breathing; raise the head; see if there
is bleeding from any part; apply smelling salts to the nose, and hot
bottles to the feet.

IN CONCUSSION, the surface of the body is cold and pale, and the pulse
weak and small, the breathing slow and gentle, and the pupil of the
eye generally contracted or small. You can get an answer by speaking
loud, so as to rouse the patient. Give a little brandy and water, keep
the place quiet, apply warmth, and do not raise the head too high. If
you tickle the feet, the patient feels it.

IN COMPRESSION OF THE BRAIN from any cause, such as apoplexy, or a
piece of fractured bone pressing on it, there is loss of sensation. If
you tickle the feet of the injured person he does not feel it. You
cannot arouse him so as to get an answer. The pulse is slow and
labored; the breathing deep, labored, and snorting; the pupil
enlarged. Raise the head, loosen strings or tight things, and send for
a surgeon. If one cannot be got at once, apply mustard poultices to the
feet and thighs, leeches to the temples, and hot water to the feet.
