Lessons from a Knife Fight •
1. What is the demographic of the combatants? Young males. Appear to be early 20’s.
2. What is the fight about? Unknown. But, due to the public nature it appears that some sort of status hierarchy is probably a latent issue. The victor doesn’t seem crazed or intent on murdering his opponent. There is no coup de grâce.
3. Do the combatants appear to be knowledgeable about how to fight with a knife? Yes. They are using pikal style grips and fighting in a knife forward-point primary style. Though there is no obvious sophisticated guard or tactics. However, the victor does appear to know to target the trapezius, upper chest and head.
4. If you were a tourist witnessing this fight, what does this tell you about your environment? You are in a knife culture. A weapons based environment and honor appears to be important. Mind your manners. Arm yourself if you can. Avoid gatherings of young men.
5. What vital area was hit and how long did it take for the fighter to lose consciousness? It appears to have possibly been the subclavian artery. It took 10 seconds to go down.
6. How many people came to his aid to administer first aid? Zero.
7. How do you treat this wound on the scene? If possible pack the wound with hemostatic gauze and utilize a pressure dressing. Medevac ASAP. •
Teman Mimin yang masih baru beberapa tahun jadi orangtua alias masih newbie, tiba-tiba panik. Dia video call Mimin, bilang anaknya baru aja kejang-kejang. Waduh! Terus nanya apa yang semestinya dia lakukan. Mimin bingung sih. Bukan karena belum pernah mengalami kejadian kayak gitu. Tapi Mimin kan belum menikah. Untungnya Mimin ingat, tempo hari ada seorang teman lain yang cerita baru selesai baca bukunya dr. Kurniawan Taufiq Kadafi, M. Biomed, Sp.A(K), judulnya Mengatasi Gawat Darurat pada Anak. Di buku itu, dr. Taufiq menyarankan langkah-langkah apa saja yang perlu orangtua ambil kalau buah hati mendadak tersedak, keracunan, alergi, kejang, diare, luka bakar, DBD, dsb. Karena pas banget, Mimin langsung aja sarankan untuk Dia baca.
Begitu sampai di rumahnya, nggak tahunya anaknya isudah dibawa ke rumah sakit. Bagus deh, bukunya tetap disimpan aja. Jaga-jaga sebagai rujukan tindakan pertama kalau nanti mengalami hal serupa.
Arnica montana ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been busy blending personalised herbal creams today. The cream pictured is therapeutically formulated with arnica, the bee’s knees of first aid. Arnica’s anti inflammatory, analgesic, and anti ecchymotic properties help to reduce the severity of sprains, muscle aches, swelling and brusing.
When the trail loses you, or you likely lose it...the winds pick up and the temperature drops quickly, the mountain is steep and the trail is slick, it’s getting dark and you’re unprepared for a long lost evening in Alaska, the area is brushy and you’re a little bit spooked...you naturally find balance within your friendship, taking turns keeping the other one calm and grounded as you allow your panicky feet to find their way. What seems like eternity later, you arrive at your car, extremely thankful for remembering the new addition to your first aid kit, AKA “whiskey” to heal some mild cases of hypothermia 😂 #whiskey#fireweed#firstaid#neverfear#hikinginalaska#happyfall 🍃🧡🍂

🚨 IT’S TIME TO SPRING CLEAN YOUR FIRST AID KIT! 🚨
Every horse owner should have a basic first aid kit. Remember that items in your kit can go out of date - so if you haven’t used your kit for a while now is the time to check this and restock! We had a number of injuries over the long weekend that required some basic first aid care before we arrived on farm!
Your horse’s first aid kit should contain a few essential items to provide emergency assistance to your horse whilst you are waiting for your vet to arrive. Such items include but are not limited to the following:
*cotton wool roll
*gauze pads or Gamgee *non stick dressing e.g. Melolin
*selection of bandages - self sticking bandage e.g. vet wrap/coplus/coflex and adhesive bandage e.g. elastoplast/leukoplast *antiseptic wound cleaner e.g. betadine *pre made poultice e.g. animalintex *antiseptic cream e.g. betadine ointment
*set of stable wraps
*pliers (to pull nails)
All these items should be kept together in a container that is sturdy and easy to carry - such as a tool box - and kept at the stables or in the tack room. Remember to bring it with you when you are travelling as this is a common time when injuries occur! A useful tip is to keep a list of contents stuck beneath the lid of the container.
Also remember to ensure that your horse’s tetanus vaccination is up to date - as then there is no need to panic with even the tiniest of wounds!
And don’t forget to have a first aid kit at hand for yourself too 😉

Top Tip Tuesday⠀
To a child pills can be easily mistaken for sweets which can lead to accidental poisoning. ⠀
This is why it is so important that all medication (including vitamins which taken incorrectly can be harmful) are kept in a child proof container out of your little one's reach.⠀
Take a look at http://www.pillsvscandy.com/ where you can complete a quiz to see if you can tell the difference between sweets and pills. Some of them are quite tricky!!⠀
