While enjoying the convenience and comfort brought by electricity, we will inevitably suffer some safety problems caused by electricity. Especially in rural areas, due to the lack of knowledge of safe use of electricity, children’s electric shock and lightning strike always occur. Baibai safety net will popularize the causes and symptoms of children’s electric shock and lightning strike.

Brief introduction of electric shock and lightning stroke in children:

With the development of society, the chance of children’s contact with electricity in their daily life increases. The causes of electric shock are mostly touching the electric appliance, power socket or the broken end of the electric wire by hand. Occasionally, they are hit by lightning when sheltering from the rain under the tree in rainy days, which can cause serious local and whole body injuries, and even make the children disabled and died.

What are the causes of electric shock and lightning stroke in children

Most of the causes of electric shock are touching the electric appliance by hand, the power socket or the broken end of the electric wire by hand, and most of the lightning strikes are sheltering under the tree in rainy days. The specific reasons are as follows.

1, ignorance

Children play with light plugs, sockets, wires or other electrical appliances out of ignorance or curiosity. When the wire is broken, I don’t know how to avoid it, or even touch it with my hand.

2. Socket installation is too low

The indoor electrical socket is too low to be touched by children, or dug with fingers, keys, coins, metal pins, etc.

3, false touch

When climbing the roof or trees to catch birds and play, they accidentally touch high-altitude wires.

4. No protective equipment

There is no protective equipment to pull the relatives or partners with electric shock.

5. Shelter from rain under big trees

When thunder and lightning, clothes get wet, shelter from rain or play under big trees.

What are the complications of electric shock and lightning stroke in children

The children with electric shock and lightning stroke can cause ventricular fibrillation and central nervous inhibition, coma, respiratory and cardiac arrest, and serious infection. Such as gas gangrene can occur fatal bleeding. This disease can also cause fracture and dislocation. When the electric burn involves deep muscle tissue, a large amount of myoglobin is produced due to extensive muscle damage, which needs to be eliminated by the kidney. Therefore, when the balance of water, electrolyte and acid-base has not been completely corrected during the shock period, the kidney is prone to damage, resulting in acute renal failure.

Winter comes, electricity peak will always cause leakage accidents, we should be more careful when using electricity and thunder days go out, safe use. If you want to know more about electric shock prevention for children at home, please continue to pay attention to the recent update of Baibai safety net.
