Broken Bone

A fracture is also called broken bone. The dislocation of bone due to fall from the height or when an outside force is applied is also regarded as broken bone. The bone may be completely fractured or partially fractured in number of ways such as crosswise, lengthwise or in multiple pieces. We can usually see such accidents while playing at the playground of school or home. Other examples can be any fall, a motor vehicle accident, or a tackle during a football game. These all incidents results in a fracture or a broken bone.

A broken bone can be classified into two categories. If a bone is broken into two pieces and there isn't wound outside the body, then it is said to be a normal fracture. It can be easily cured and it takes no longer time to heal. If a bone is broken into more than two pieces, it is said to be a complex fracture. Injuries can be seen on the body in this sort of fracture. It takes a longer period of time to heal.

Shock

Shock is a life-threatening condition that occurs only when the body is not getting enough blood flow. As lack of blood flow means the cells and organs do not get enough oxygen and nutrients to function properly, multiple organs can suffer damage as a result. Excessive pain, maximum blood loss, scary objects, overheats, physical and mental tiredness, the accident also results to be in shock. Likewise poisonous food, drowning, low amount of water in the body, electric shock is also other reasons.

If conscious, the person may feel faint or be very weak. Shock sometimes causes a person to become anxious. The skin may appear pale or grey. Moreover, hands, legs, nose and mouth freezes. These all are the symptoms of shock.
