What to do in
emergency situations?


a. Mountain sickness
You may suffer from dizziness, nausea or vomiting, headache or shortness of breath due to reduced atmospheric pressure and low oxygen levels. The first thing you should do if you suffer from mountain sickness is to stop or descend to a lower altitude, making as little physical effort as possible.

b. Hypothermia
The most extreme case is hypothermia, which is a decrease in body temperature between 32 and 35 °C, the most frequent signs being: frequent tremors, fatigue, cold skin and hyperventilation. You should always call the rescue bodies, but while they arrive, protect the person from any source of cold, remove all wet clothes, heat the central part of the body and try to maintain the level of the temperature of the affected person. 

c. Injuries 
In case of any sprain or any fall in rocky terrain, it is always advisable to bring bandages, alcohol, band-aids and anti-inflammatory in your kit, to relieve these injuries.
