What happens when blood cannot circulate?
Bacteria causes a cascade of events when blood can’t circulate. It makes your heart not be able to pump properly, your blood vessels dilate, and your capillaries are leaky— when fluids leak to the tissues— which makes it inefficient for blood to circulate.
What are two reasons why Dr. Bliss couldn’t find the bullet in Garfield?
Dr. Bliss used Alexander Graham Bell’s invention, the induction balance, which is like a metal detector. One reason is because they didn’t scan the other side of Garfield’s body because Dr. Bliss was certain that he knew where the bullet was. The second reason is because Garfield was on a bed with a lot of metal springs.
Does a bullet ever bring foreign matter into a body?
Yes, it can. A bullet is usually clean, but when it picks up any part of your clothing or other material, it can turn into an infection within your body. The bullet itself is often not the cause behind the wound's infection, but it's the foreign matter it brings with it inside your body.
What are some things you should do if you witness someone getting shot?
After making the 911 call, scene safety is next. Make sure it’s not a public attack before you try to help the person. The best thing you can do is wad up your shirt or whatever you have to put constant and firm pressure on the bleeding area. Do not check it, but consistently apply pressure until medical help arrives.
