By DAVID TAURANGA St John volunteers are getting ready for a big day out this week. The Big Day Out returns to Mt Smart Stadium on Friday and St John is asking all concertgoers to rock out to the music safely. This year more than 150 v olunteers, including doctors, nurses, paramedics and mobile first responders, will be on hand. St John is warning concertgoers that a mixture of sun, heat, exhaustion, alcohol and drugs can turn a fun time into a really bad day. It offers hints and tips to keep safe during the Big Day Out. Sunburn: The best treatment is preven- tion by keeping covered. If burnt use relieving creams if there is no severe blistering. Seek medical aid if you feel very unwell or if large blisters appear. Heat exhaustion: This is caused by exposure to extreme temperature and by not replacing fluid being lost by sweating. Symptoms include weakness, loss of appetite, fainting, dizziness, sweating, nausea and vomiting. Rest the patient in a cool place and give them fluid to drink. Seek medical help if their condition worsens or they are unable to drink fluids. Alcohol poisoning: Life-threatening alcohol poi- soning occurs commonly in young people and a person can drink a potentially fatal dose before they start showing signs of intoxication and becoming unconscious. If someone has alcohol poisoning shake their shoulder and shout at them until they wake. If they do not respond lie them on their side and arrange medical help. Remove vomit if it blocks the front of the mouth. Drug poisoning: A poison is any substance that can cause damage to the body, such as medicines, if taken in large amounts, and illicit drugs. Symptoms can include an altered level of consciousness, stomach or abdominal pain, diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, seizures, breathing difficulty, altered or changed behaviour. If you think someone has drug poisoning do not try to make the person vomit or give them anything to drink unless told by medical staff. If they are unconscious place them on their side and seek medical aid. Go to www.stjohn.org.nz for more first aid tips or to enrol in a first aid course.
