Dealing with claustrophobia and trauma in confined spaces

By | August 10, 2017

Trauma arises when unfortunate disasters or accidents occur when least expected. Even more so, claustrophobia can strike fear in the hearts of anyone when least expected. You’ll never know if you are technically claustrophobic until the day it happens. And in order for that to happen, you would have to be trapped in small, confined spaces, with or without people inside. When an acute shortness of breath with consequences to health or a damaging panic attack occurs, you’d better home that there’s someone standing by close enough to help.

There could be life-threatening consequences if no help is at hand. Life threatening scenarios are more like on the scene of trauma inducing accidents or natural or man-made disasters. Good and well that there is someone close enough willing enough to lend a helping hand. But it matters not an iota if that person is ill-equipped to deal with the situation. Unexpectedly, some folks may find that they cannot stomach giving mouth to mouth as a matter of urgency.

And so the trauma-stricken and or woman could potentially die. But, of course, it does not need to happen at all. Folks in positions of responsibility, family household heads, managers and supervisors can initiate the necessary preparedness. Confined space rescue training can, today, be arranged at a moment’s notice. This is not so much for convenience’s sake where many folks aren’t able to attend live person to person workshops, and is more than ideal to cater for emergencies on short notice.

With digital technologies to hand, people of note can attend online rescue training workshops in the comfort of their homes or directly from their office desktops. As they say; no one needs to miss an appointment.
