Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins

Three Scenarios In Which You Can Use CPR In Your Home

When you think about CPR training and the subsequent use of these skills, it's easy to closely associate them with different professions. For example, a paramedic, daycare instructor, and police officer all take CPR training because they may have to use these skills during their everyday job. You shouldn't, however, make the mistake of believing that there has to be a link between CPR and a vocation. The average person can benefit from this type of training because he or she may be able to use it without ever leaving the home. Here are three scenarios in which you may be able to save a life by using CPR at home. 

Saving A Spouse

As people get older, living at home can get more dangerous. As you age, it's always important to know CPR, because you may need to rely upon your training to save your spouse's life. An elderly person can be unresponsive for a variety of reasons. For example, your spouse could have fallen in the home and been knocked unconscious, choked on a piece of food, or perhaps even had an adverse reaction to a new type of medication that he or she is taking. In such scenarios, first responders may not be able to reach the home in time — but you could save your spouse by performing CPR.

Helping A Child

Regardless of your age, you may have children in your home. If you're middle aged, your kids and their friends may be in your home for a sleepover, pool party, or to play sports in the backyard. As you age and your children grow up, your grandchildren may eventually come over for visits. Knowing CPR is critical if you ever expect to have children in your home. If the kids aren't yours, their parents are trusting you to take care of the children, and CPR is part of doing so. An injury, accident in the swimming pool, and an allergic reaction are times that you may need to use CPR on a child.

Caring For A Visitor

Many people run businesses out of their homes and, thus, may have numerous people visiting throughout the day. For example, if you're a massage therapist, hairstylist, graphic designer, or otherwise run a home-based business, you may have people visit you at home. You'll often have little idea of the health status of each of these individuals who visits your home, and there could be a risk of someone passing out or sustaining some manner of medical emergency that requires immediate intervention. If you've trained in CPR, you may be able to save the person before first responders arrive.

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.
