Feeling the Pain Pain is a major defense mechanism: It is actually a very important action of the peripheral nervous system that is essential to our well being. Here is how it works! • It tells us something is wrong with our body that we can’t see otherwise. Example: Abdominal pain; gas, constipation, infection • It helps us avoid dangerous things. Example: We touch a hot fire; we feel pain and pull away with spinal reflex immediately. • It helps us protect damaged body parts. Example: We shield injuries from physical contact (guarding) and limit use of injured muscle/skin to promote healing. The most common categories are: • Thermal - Heat or Cold • Mechanical - Crushing, Tearing, etc. • Chemical - Iodine in a cut, chili powder in the eyes

Spinal Cord injuries can range from minor to life threatening depending on the injury site and severity.

The Body has several defense mechanisms in place to protect it from invasion from outsiders. The body is under constant attack from viruses, bacteria and other harmful microorganisms but, our defenses stand strong!

Scythe You off duty hiking with some friends, upon waling up a narrow ravine your friend who is a 21 year old white female slips down about 6-8 feet to a dry creek bed. She screams loudly and i crying. When you arrive at her this is what you find. Initially no pedal pulse. She screams "Don't touch it" The only other injuries is "road rash" to her hands and she is complaining of some mild lumbar pain. Your 3 miles into the woods, No Cell service, No sat phone, no radio. JUST YOU and 1 non-medically trained friend. You DID NOT bring your first aid kit. How are you going to package this and extricate her to the road 3 miles away where you can get cell service?
