Signs of shock include rapid pulse, grey complexion, sweating, thirst, shivering, nausea, vomiting, weakness, dizziness and sometimes convulsions. What to do
Call an ambulance or rush the child to the hospital. Don’t offer food or water. Make the child comfortable with his legs slightly elevated. Cover the child lightly to relieve chills, but not with a heavy blanket.
