Ambulance doctors rescued Tyumenka with an acute allergic reaction. The woman began to choke abruptly at night.
The incident took place the day before, December 6th. An elderly Tyumen woman was frightened for her life when her tongue increased in size at night, and her body became covered with red itchy spots. The woman called the ambulance and said that she had encountered such symptoms for the first time.
After 15 minutes, the medical team was in place. An 80-year-old pensioner was diagnosed with an allergic reaction like Quincke's edema. Doctors injected her with hormonal and antihistamines intravenously. The woman felt better. On an emergency basis, she was taken to OKB 1, the press service of the Ambulance Station told the Ural Meridian news agency.
Ambulance specialists remind: if a rash and itching appear, you should contact the clinic. In severe cases, with swelling of the eyelids, lips, enlarged tongue, hoarseness and difficulty breathing, you need to immediately call an ambulance from a landline phone at 03, from a cell phone - 103.
If there are signs of allergy, especially if it is not the first time it appears, antihistamines should be taken before the arrival of doctors. It is also recommended to drink sorbents and as much water as possible.
Sometimes, a person develops anaphylactic shock with lightning speed - within 1-2 minutes after the allergen enters the body.
