Breathe deeper

Дихайте глибше

Does think that exists only seasickness? Are mistaken. In mountains through the shortage of oxygen and LP for you can develop mountain. Her first signals is a shortness of breath, dizziness, headache, sonitus, nausea, sleepiness, muscular weakness, bleeding from a nose and change of psychical reactions.

Carefully, rockfall!

КаменепадOne of the most widespread dangers there are rockfalls in mountains. Even a small stone that broke away from above can become reason of catastrophe. He takes after itself other pieces and blocks of breed and can cause a whole hail. And to the blow only one small каменя, that flies with  high speed, sufficiently, to inflict a heavy trauma to the man.

Here, setting forth for mountains, remember, that falling of stones is assisted by the strong gusts of wind, storm digits of lightning and thunder, careless motions of animals and people, but mainly are different daily allowance fluctuations in a temperature. Therefore stick to a little rather from  the foot of steep slopes, do not walk about rocky chamfers and do not cross them.  Mountains become especially dangerous nearer to the south and late in the evening, in the conditions of warm clear weather. If you by chance brushed against a stone, then make a push at most, that at once to stop him, or at least warn all, who is below. Even at a rockfall that began, it is possible to be wrenched from a blow, jumping a jerk on a safe place.

 Threatening and most dangerous

Снігова лавина

If from a rockfall it is possible to be wrenched, although not all it can do, then from such danger, as an avalanche units can pull through. She not for nothing is considered the threatening and most insidious danger of mountains, that at presence of the determined amount of snow can arise up at any time year and on the slopes of different steepness.

A dry avalanche carries the fully real danger of difficulty in breathing from penetration of shallow particles of snow dust in standard. The wet easily knocks a man down and in case of stopping quickly змерзається. In the end any avalanche injures and can become reason of freezing of man. If your tourist group appeared in the zone of an increase danger, all will depend on speed of reaction and decision of actions. Noticing an avalanche, stronger throw down backpacks, dismiss the ends of avalanche cords and escape aside from an avalanche. At a dry пилоподібній avalanche it is important in time densely to close something a mouth and nose.

If your group got under an avalanche and someone disappeared, first of all find and fish out him from snow. Render the first домедичну aid and as possible quicker deliver to the skilled doctor. If a man did not succeed to be found, report about it a control-rescue point, local population, other tourists and alpinists.
