Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins

3 Tips For Riding On An Air Ambulance With A Sick Loved One

If someone you care about is sick or injured and has to take an air ambulance, then you may want to ride along. Then, you can be close to your loved one during this difficult time and can provide support. Even though you may want to ride along, however, you could be a little bit nervous and unsure of what to expect when riding in an air ambulance. These are a few tips that can help you when you do so.

1. Make Sure You're Properly Hydrated

For one thing, you should know that the air inside of an air ambulance can be very dry. It is important to make sure that you are properly hydrated before riding in an air ambulance so that you can feel your best and avoid dehydration. Ensure that you drink plenty of water before you get on the air ambulance, and consider asking if you can bring along a bottle of water so that you can stay well-hydrated during the ride.

2. Take Motion Sickness Medication

If you are someone who is prone to feeling motion sickness when you fly or when you're in the car, then you could be worried about getting sick while you're on the air ambulance. When you have a sick or injured loved one to worry about, the last thing that you probably want is to get sick. One good idea is to take a motion sickness medication before you get on the air ambulance. Just make sure that you follow the instructions on the bottle and take the right dosage to help avoid making things worse, and ask your doctor if it's okay to take this type of medication if you aren't sure.

3. Let Someone Know if You Don't Feel Well

Even though the main concern might be about your loved one while you are on the air ambulance, you will be surrounded by medical professionals. Therefore, if you find that you do not feel well when you're on the air ambulance, do not be afraid to say something so that you can get help.

Riding in an air ambulance for the first time can be enough to make just about anyone nervous. However, if you follow these tips, you can help make the ride easier and more comfortable for you. Then, you can turn your focus on making sure that you are being supportive to your sick or injured loved one.

Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins

Having a child on the autism spectrum poses all kinds of unique challenges that can sometimes be very difficult. The sensory issues that often accompany spectrum disorders can mean that even everyday things like taking vitamins may be a serious struggle. For my son, it's both texture and taste that pose challenges for him, which made finding a vitamin supplement very difficult. After experimenting with many different brands, styles, and flavors, I have found what does and doesn't work for various sensory issues that he has. I've created this site to share our experiences in the hopes that it might help other parents with kids on the spectrum to find a vitamin their child will take.
