Nowadays, there are more and more electrical equipment around us. Many children lack of self-protection consciousness. Because of curiosity, they insert their fingers or metal into the socket, resulting in irreparable consequences. So, what happens when a child gets an electric shock? Baby has an electric shock. First aid only needs three steps!
Parents should notice that first aid for children’s electric shock should be carried out in three steps
1. Cut off the power supply
For younger children, they will feel curious about everything, so they will like to touch the East and the West. So it’s easy to get an electric shock by accident.
So the first thing that moms need to do is to find the power switch as soon as possible and cut off the power supply under the condition of safety. If you can’t find it all at once, you can find a wooden stick and so on to separate the child from the items with electricity, or you can stand on the dry paper pile or board, and then pull the child’s dry clothes corner and drag him away, which is also OK.
2. Judge the physical signs of children
After mothers separate their children from electricity, all they have to do is judge the vital signs of children. If the electric current passing through the human body is very small and the time of electric shock is very short, then generally life-threatening will not occur. And if the child feels flustered, dizzy and numb, it’s better to let the child rest for 1-2 hours. And the best time for children to rest is to have someone around to watch, and observe the breathing and heartbeat of children, so as to facilitate timely handling. If the skin has burns, you can apply some anti-inflammatory cream to the wound to prevent infection.
3. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation
If your child has been electrocuted for a long time, the current through the human body will be relatively large, so it may cause serious damage to important organs of the human body. As a result, the child will appear pale, blue and purple, unconscious and other symptoms, even the heart and breathing will stop.
If mothers find that their children have the above situation after the electric shock, they need to immediately rescue the children on site, do artificial respiration and cardiac compression. At the same time, we must call 120 immediately to let the medical staff come to rescue. The method of artificial respiration for children is very simple. It is mainly to hold the nostril when blowing, loosen the nostril when relaxing, and then blow for 1 second, relax for 1 second, and two breaths for 4 seconds.
The above is the knowledge of how to first aid children’s electric shock. I hope parents can pay attention to it. Don’t wait for their children to have no idea what to do after an electric shock. In an emergency, they can save their children’s life..
