What Triggers Dizziness After Exercise?


Date: March 31st, 2022

The 5 Possible Causes of Dizziness After Exercise

Workout sessions use up plenty of energy and can leave you feeling worn out. However, it’s not okay to suffer dizziness after physical exercises. Though this symptom doesn’t indicate anything serious, some cases can be alarming. Dizziness post-exercise is often caused by poor breathing, fatigue, or dehydration.

However, other times it may be triggered by pre-existing factors such as pregnancy, low blood sugar, low pressure, dehydration, etc.?

For instance, during the first 15 minutes of vigorous activity, the body sources energy from the glucose present in the blood and muscles. As soon as the body uses up your blood sugar, it sources glucose from other reserves. Therefore, the absence of glucose can cause energy deficiencies and trigger dizziness.

Causes of Fainting, Remedies, and Tips to Prevent It


Date: March 22nd, 2022

Understanding the Causes of Fainting
Fainting occurs when one loses consciousness for a short time due to insufficient or lack of oxygen in their brain. It is a widespread issue, responsible for 3% of ER visits and 6% of hospitalizations. Though some causes of fainting are medical-related, fainting occurs even to the most healthy individuals.

Syncope is the medical word for fainting, however, it is more frequently referred to as “blacking out” or “passing out.” Fainting lasts a few seconds but may extend to minutes.

A victim may experience dizziness and drowsiness (presyncope) before going unconscious (syncope). Victims recover in a matter of minutes, soon after first aid for fainting. If they do not have an underlying medical problem, they may not require medical attention.

Fainting is seldom a reason for alarm, but it might be a sign of a significant medical condition. If you have no fainting history and have gone into syncope more than once in the last month, consult your physician.

Choosing the Best Model for Your CPR Training Course


Date: March 7th, 2022

Tips to Choose the Best CPR Models
During CPR training, learners must practice some skills on a human-like model or manikin/womanikin. Examples of such training include; opening the airways and performing chest compressions.

When teaching such sessions, it is advisable to adopt the best CPR models instead of practicing on humans. It is not okay to train resuscitation techniques on a conscious person because:

  • It causes nausea, and
  • In the worst cases, it can lead to broken ribs.

Learning how to administer chest pushes on a conscious individual can also prove hectic because the person must endure several pushes until the student (s) masters the art.

First Aid for Water Emergencies: Tips to Rescue a Drowning Victim


Date: March 3rd, 2022

Accidental Drowning the Pros of Learning First aid Treatment
Drowning happens when a person submerges underwater (or any other liquid)—is not able to hold their breath—and water rushes into the respiratory system, causing impairments.

Drowning happens slowly and silently so bystanders may not notice a victim in need of help.

The World Health Organization refers to drowning as what happens when a person is immersed or submerged in a liquid. If the person drowns and first aid treatment is NOT issued immediately, the result can be severe injuries to the respiratory system or loss of life.

As stated above, drowning can occur silently and the victim may not be able to call for help. Often, the victim tries to keep their head above water, breath, and maybe talk simultaneously, which makes speaking almost impossible.

In the struggle, water can reach the vocal cords and make it difficult to shout for help. If no help is issued, most of the time, the body is found floating on water.
