Have you ever thought that a needle is something you should always have in your pocket? Maybe you haven’t, but after reading this article you’ll feel differently for sure. A needle can actually help you save yours or someone else’s life and we’ll show you how. The simple trick we’re about to share can help you in case of a stroke and can make all the difference, at least until the paramedics arrive.
When someone is having a stroke the brain capillaries start to tear and the brain stops receiving the needed amount of oxygen. This causes the brain cells to start dying off and it requires immediate medical help or could have deadly consequences.
What would it be a good idea for you to do in such a circumstance, on the off chance that you or somebody near you is having a stroke?
The first thing you have to do is to keep it together and call 911 quickly. At that point, until the paramedics arrive don’t move the individual who’s having a stroke get a needle as quickly as possible.
The best thing is to use a medical needle, but if you don’t have that type, a simple needle will help.
Before using it, keep the needle above a fire, lighter or a candle in order to sterilize it. Once you’ve done that, prick the tips of all 10 fingers, as close to the nails as possible and as fast as possible. If the blood doesn’t start flowing on itself, squeeze the fingers to make it start.
As soon as the blood starts flowing from all 10 fingers, the person will regain consciousness.
If you notice that the patient`s mouth is crooked, massage their ears until they turn red in order to stimulate blood circulation. Also, you can prick the earlobe twice until two drops of blood come out. After a couple of minutes, the patient`s mouth will go back to normal.
Now all you have to do is wait for the paramedics to arrive and they’ll do the rest. Congratulations, you’ve just saved someone’s life!
