My mother lost her consciousness for 2-3 minutes on Friday 25th July, 2014 morning. I was monitoring her BP level while she got fainted. The BP was normal. I was about to check her blood sugar level, but suddenly she couldn’t talk, her voice became unclear and feeble, body became cold and I couldn’t check the sugar level. We took her to the bed and rubbed her hands and feet to make hot. She was sweating after 2 minutes and returned back to conscious state. That was the first time I saw her so weak. It seems to be a cardiac arrest.(But my assumption proved to be wrong later). So we rushed her to DM WIMS, Kalpetta center where my cousin-sister works.
The BP was a bit high when we reached there and they gave some BP and Sugar tablets. Doctor checked her whether there was a sign of Paralysis or not. But she was responding nicely to the Doctor’s commands. Doctor suggested to have an ECG in which he found a small fluctuation and advised us to admit her at DM WIMS, Meppadi. DM WIMS (Wayanad institute of medical sciences) is a newly opened hospital near Thazhe Arappetta, Meppadi, Wayanad district which is a sister concern of MIMS, Kozhikode.
