What to do when a child is in shock?

Make your child lie down with his head lower than his feet so that adequate amount of blood returns to his brain. Keep his head turned to one side so that if he vomits, he will not choke. Loosen any tight clothing so that his breathing is not restricted. Cover with a blanket or a coat to preserve his body warmth. Comfort him so that he gets over his fear and relaxes. Artificial warming will force the blood vessels near his skin to reopen.
