Dealing with Injuries in the Wildernessfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
People who love adventure can't wait to head into the woods to hunt, camp or just enjoy the raw beauty of nature. Unfortunately, there are times when you're enjoying your freedom away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and having a great time that an accident can happen. If an injury should happen to you while in the midst of your wilderness adventure, here are a few quick tips you should implement.
When out in the wild there's always the possiblity of encountering a ferocious animals that can bite anyone who intrudes on their territory. If you're ever bitten by any wild animal the first thing to do is wash the infected area with clean water and soap (a germicidal soap is best) as soon possible. After scrub the wounded area, cover the wound with a clean bandage. When you head home, you should see your doctor immediately to check on the wound. He may prescribe antibiotics or a tetanus booster depending on the animal bite.
There are a massive number of insects to be found in the woods. If you feel an insect sting, remove the insect's remains on the affected skin and it's a good idea to leave the place you got the insect sting because chances are there are a lots more insects ready to bite you if you stayed there. If stingers are still lodged deep in your skin, remove them with a thin and hard material (such as a credit card or your fingernail) and scrape out the foreign body. Remove jewelry, such as rings, if your fingers are affected since tight jewelry can hinder the flow of your blood. To ease the pain, try rubbing a salt and water solution or a baking soda paste on the affected area.
One of the potential accidents while trekking is an ankle fracture. If this should happen to you, keep your ankles elevated and do your best not to move it which might help minimize the pain and swelling. If you have cold packs in your luggage, apply them to the injured area.
If you bump your head, apply ice packs if they're available. If not, you can use ice wrapped in cloth or if you have any frozen item in your backpack, use them as a replacement for ice. You can also make your own ice pack by mixing 1/3 cup of isopropyl alcohol and 2/3-cup water in a zip lock bag.
Of course, whenever you go into the wilderness, always bring along a first aid kit as having one available coult prove to be a life saver if an accident or injury should happen.
