The tension evaporated from Helena's shoulder upon Doctor Sophos' response. Good, she hadn't goofed. Guess all that time spent in the hospital was worth something, huh?

Then the next slide came, far less graphic than the last. A female, probably around Academy age, seemingly about ready to just hand a half-digested meal back to the ground. She turned to the teacher as he provided further details relevant to the picture.

...Oh. Oh no. This wasn't what she'd concentrated on. She usually went around and helped trauma patients, stopped excessive bleeding and the like. This... was a tough one. Okay, okay, first order the info. Narrow victory. Not hurt too badly. Cool and clammy skin, pale as a ghost. Enlarged pupils. Erratic breathing, unsteady stance. Feels dizzy and nauseous. And, last but not least, common.

Where to look to know what's wrong... Hm. So it shouldn't be explicit just from what she's getting. Hmmmm. She scribbled it all down, hoping to get a better conclusion.

...

So the girl might be vaguely feeling it after the near death experience. But where should she check? "What may she look for to find out what's wrong?"

Shit. She had absolutely no idea. Again, she sllloooowwwwly raised her hand. The best guess she had was "ask if she's afraid". For gods' sake was she useless at non-physical ailments right now.

(OOC: Sorry about the long-delayed response -- it's been a hectic week.)


This one seemed to be stumping more of the students, it seemed. Budonoki understood; without obvious physical signs the condition became something of a riddle. He gave a nod when Sandy and Helena raised their hand to answer. "Yes, mister Smoke and then miss Chlophyll. Your thoughts?"

Being called on Sandy decided to give his response since the other person called on to answer seemed completely stumped. "Before anything I'd be getting her to lay down on her side so she can't fall over or choke on her own vomit if she passes out or throws up. Also I have a question about the encounter. Were the Grimm we were up against a type that use poison, like those annoying tiny deathstalker bastards?

The professor nodded thoughtfully at Sandy's answer. "A reasonable precaution, and certainly a good one for this situation. As to your question, no: this particular ailment can occur without exposure to any sort of outside toxin... though, I suppose, toxic contamination does increase the likelihood of it somewhat."

Pausing for a moment, Budonoki wondered if perhaps this one was too far off the beaten path to be easily guessed. "... Perhaps a small hint: think beyond the purely physical. A person is, after all, not just biology -- any number of factors can cause bodily distress."

Bugger. Poison was my best guess. At the professor's hint Sandy's hand went to his chin as he thought for a couple of moments muttering to himself slightly. "Not toxins but they can cause it........beyond physical.......so. It's in her head? OH!" Suddenly Sandy's hand went from his chin into the palm of his other hand in a closed fist. "Food poisoning. Is that it?" Shit! What the hell do you do when someone gets food poisoning in the middle of a goddamn mission. I thought you just had to wait for it to pass.

Diana looked up from her notes with a bewildered look, she had dismissed the question as a simple one and was surprised that it was still being discussed. The fact that it was started to shake her own certainty, but then again it was hardly fair to expect most people to know this stuff, besides that's why people were here. She reluctantly raised a single finger, low enough that she could be ignored if someone else took the initiative.

After a long, nearly disturbing period of silence and no sign that either party involved was gonna make a move, Helena raised her hand once again. She doubted that's what it was, but it was more or less her only guess. Keeping it in the air, she said "Excuse me, Doctor Sophos? Could it be a panic attack? Or maybe some other form of psychological affliction caused by the close call battle?"

(OOC: Whoa, did not realize I'd let this thread lapse so badly. My apologies to everyone who's been waiting on a post!)


"Food poisoning. Is that it?"


Budonoki rubbed his chin for a moment while he considered that answer. "Hmm. I admit, I hadn't considered that angle when preparing these exercises. Food poisoning could certainly cause the nausea and dizziness, but unless it was bad enough to cause septic shock it wouldn't quite account for the enlarged pupils, clammy skin, and erratic breathing. Still, I must applaud you for thinking outside the box, mister Smoke."


"Excuse me, Doctor Sophos? Could it be a panic attack? Or maybe some other form of psychological affliction caused by the close call battle?"


Smiling, Budonoki pointed to Helena and smiled. "Very good! Yes, the symptoms we're seeing in this instance are similar to a panic attack, and they are indeed caused by the stress of the battle. What we have here is referred to as 'combat fatigue' -- the aftermath of heightened life-or-death emotional and physical responses hitting the body all at once. Even the most experienced of Hunters are susceptible, unfortunately, and even a wealth of experience isn't a complete defense against so deep-rooted an exhaustion of one's personal reserves." He looked around the room, once again endeavoring to meet every eye. "It's easy to get swept up in the duty -- the heroics, even -- of being a Huntress or Huntsman... but like any other job, over-exertion inevitably leads to burn-out. It can be tempting to go right from one crisis to another, trying to solve each of the world's problems as they cross your path... but it is essential, no matter how strong or capable, that you take time out to look to your own needs and those of your comrades. Food, rest, healthy expression of one's emotions and working through stress, all are vitally important. Maintaining one's self, in all regards, is just as vital to success as maintaining one's weapons."

"If you or a teammate are experiencing combat fatigue, the best advice is to slow down. Sit, sip some water, and just focus on breathing until it returns to a steady, normal pace. Avoid laying down right away unless fainting seems likely, and if so ensure the person rests on their side, not their back. Avoid eating for at least fifteen minutes as well. If, over the next half hour, the condition worsens considerably you should treat the victim as if they've gone into shock and seek immediate medical help."

"Now... one more for the day, I think. Ah, fair warning -- this last image is particularly grisly."


True to his word, what appeared next on the screen was enough to ruin most people's appetites: the victim in this case had severe red, blistering burns centered more or less on their wrist, the inner facing of the arm looking badly scorched with raw, burnt skin coming off in sickly layers. "Dust ammunition backfires, while mercifully rare, can be devastating. It may be tempting to buy the least expensive munitions if you're short on lien but the risk of something like this happening does increase. The victim in this case was using fire rounds when their clip suddenly ignited, exploding almost immediately thereafter. Their Aura was overwhelmed and they suffered extensive second-degree burns on the palm, fingers, wrist, and forearm. Assume that you are at the scene when this happens, have only a standard first-aid kit available, and that there are either no enemies nearby or that they are being kept at bay. What stabilizing care would you render?"

Damn. It really was all in their head. Ah well lesson learned. With the question answered Sandy finally returned to his seat. Just in time to look upon the grisly scene being projected before him and wishing that he hadn't. While able to mostly keep his reaction in check he did visibly grimace at the sight. "Well that's certainly a nasty one." speaking under his breath he looked to his studying companions in the form of Blair and Rackley. "Either of you got any ideas on what to do? we may as well try to say something before the brain-boxes get everything."

Nodding while listening to the Professor give his explanation on battle fatigue, Rackley hastily jotted down as much as he could as he followed along with the lesson. He had never personally felt this type of fatigue before, however, he knew it wouldn't be uncommon for that to happen, especially if you've been fighting non-stop for the entire day or longer.

Not noticing Sandy come back to his seat, Rackley grimaced visibly and had to look away briefly to compose himself before looking back at the picture set before him. Hearing Sandy's comment, he simply nodded in acknowledgement. As much as Rackley did not want to have attention drawn to him, this was something he had learned about while out in the wilderness with his father learning to hunt. "A-A-A cool c-compress for s-starters" he stammered, trying to not be nervous around Blair. "You c-c-could p-put it under cool water to cool it down first before p-putting a loose b-b-bandage that won't st-stick to the w-wound on to k-keep it covered until you g-get them to p-proper care."

Letting out a breath, Rackley hoped his response was sufficient for Sandy to answer. No matter how courageous he was feeling, Rackley couldn't bring himself to want to raise his hand to answer the question so he hoped that his partner would be able to do that in his place.

"ok. sounds good. You want to take this one?" Sandy directed the question at Blair but as he was about to ask specifically he realized that she hadn't told him her name and just hoped that she understood he was asking her and not Rackley.
