It’s a scary thing to think about, but in this day and age, you may to have to consider the possibility of getting shot. Learning more about gunshot wounds and how to deal with them will be crucial when SHTF. (h/t to Survivopedia.com)
The first thing to understand is how a bullet (or the projectile) interacts with a body. A bullet coming into contact with the body has a lot of momentum, and that momentum has to go somewhere. A standard 9 mm bullet, which is commonly fired from handguns, travels at a speed of about 900 mph. Imagine all of that momentum crashing into your body at a single point. This causes a tremor that damages surrounding tissues and organs, even if the bullet didn’t reach them.
Because of this momentum, a person could still get injured even if he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Depending on the vest’s durability, it may help catch a bullet. If the vest is not well-made, a shot from a high-powered rifle may still penetrate it.
Whether or not a person survives a gunshot wound depends on a lot of factors. In the right conditions, even a person shot multiple times can still survive.
Here are some things that can affect a person’s chances of survival:
Knowing the shot placement and possibly an exit wound is crucial to survival. You will need to act quickly depending on where a person got shot.
If you or someone else got shot, the first thing to do is to make sure that you and the other person is safe. Do not confront the shooter. If you’re in a secluded area, depending on the severity of the wound, try to get to an open area where you can call for help. If you’re with an uninjured person, ask him to call for emergency dispatch.
While waiting for help to arrive, there are some ways to apply first aid. Treating a gunshot wound depends on the shot placement.
Check the quick guide below:
A shooting victim may panic or become delirious after the event. Help him calm down and encourage him. If you’re the gunshot victim, focus on breathing and believe in your ability to survive this. Once the emergency personnel arrives, make sure to inform him of every detail: the event, the wound and the first aid.
Gunshots are dangerous. The best way to survive is to avoid it in the first place. Always be alert and keep an eye out for potential shooters. If it does happen, your priority is always to escape.
