glycogen contains many branches of glucose molecules and acts as a storage of energy. Glucose molecules are cut off and used for energy.

Severe bleeding is a life threatening condition, whereas minor bleeding is important to control but not life threatening. The simplest, most effective treatment to stop bleeding is to apply firm, direct pressure to the wound. Put non-stick gauze over the wound, and use your (gloved) hand to press… down firmly but not too hard that you damage any internal complications. Most wounds will stop bleeding within a couple of minutes of applying direct pressure. If, however, the bleeding is not slowing or stopping, and the wound is on an extremity, it may be necessary to apply indirect pressure along with the direct pressure. Note 1: Indirect pressure is always applied simultaneously with direct pressure, never on its own. Note 2: If the wound requires indirect pressure, the patient will definitely require an ambulance. If the bleeding is very severe, the pressure of the rushing blood may hinder the body's ability to clot, and as such indirect pressure may be necessary. If the wound is on the hand or arm (distal to the bicep), you can use the brachial artery pressure point to cut off the blood supply to the limb. Your partner should be checking the patient's radial pulse, so they can tell you when you have successfully cut off the blood supply. Using your index and middle fingers together, push underneath the bicep from the medial side and slightly upward. You should feel the brachial pulse. Push the brachial artery against the humerus to cut off the blood supply, and ensure your partner can no longer feel a radial pulse. Release (slowly) the indirect pressure at least every 15 minutes. Keep released for 30 seconds before reapplying. If the wound is on the leg or foot, the same principle applies, except that your partner checks the piedal pulse, and you cut off the femoral artery by holding your fingers out straight, and pushing the blade of your hand down on to the proximal anterior part of the leg, adjacent to the groin. Push down with your other hand on top to increase pressure. ( Full Answer )

Make sure you do not put yourself in danger when going to the assistance of another person. If it is too dangerous for you to approach then keep yourself and others back a…nd dial 999. If it is to approach them the do so cautiously. Response - Are the conscious? Do they reply to your questions? Do they respond to pain stimulus when you pinch their earlobe? Shout - Shout loudly for assistance so that anyone else who may be in the vicinity can hear you. You may need help in tending to the casualty and calling for the emergency services. Airway - Check the casualty's airway. If the person is responding, they are conscious and their airway is clear, assess how you can help them with any injury. If the person is not responding and they are unconscious, you need to check their airway by opening their mouth and having a look inside. If their mouth is clear, tilt their head gently back by lifting their chin and check for breathing. If the mouth is not clear, place the person on their side, open their mouth and clear the contents, then lie them back on their back, tilt the head back and check for breathing. Breathing - Rest the side of your face by the casualty's face for at least 10 seconds to see if you can feel their breath on your face. Listen for their breathing also and look at their chest to see if you can see it moving up and down, also indicating that someone is breathing. CPR - If you cannot feel them breathing then proceed with CPR. Give 30 chest compressions at a rate of 100-120 per minute (about the speed of the song 'Staying alive'), and continue until the ambulance arrives and the paramedics take over or until the casualty starts to breathe on their own. If the casualty does start to breathe on their own then proceed to put them in the recovery position. Recovery position:- 1) Remove any objects from the casualty's pockets such as mobile, keys, wallet, etc so that they don't di gin to the casualty when you lie them on their side and cause more injury. 2) Straighten the casualty up. 3) Take hold of the arm that is closest to you and tuck it under the casualty's body. 4) Take hold of the other hand and place the back of this hand on the back of the opposite cheek, holding it in place i.e if you are on the casualty's left side then rest the back of their right hand on their left cheek, holding it in place with your right hand and vice versa if you are on their other side. 5) Using your left hand pull their right leg up with their right foot just at the side of their left knee or vice versa if on the other side, keeping your hand on the knee. If they are wearing trousers then use these to help you. Get a grip of the trouser leg and use it to aid you. 6) Gently roll the casualty towards you. Get a bystander if possible to help you if you struggle. 7) Roll the casualty so that they are lying, partly on their front, making sure that the back is straight. 8) Straighten the casualty's leg and arm, keeping the hand that is on the cheek where it is and the leg that us used to roll them bent at a right angle. 9) Gently tilt the head back with the mouth open to keep the airway clear. 10) Stay with the casualty and keep a regular check on them to make sure they don't stop breathing. If they do then repeat the process again until the paramedics arrive / they breathe on their own again. ( Full Answer )
