How to perform home first aid in case of meningeal irritation

If the patient’s condition is not yet serious, without fainting, coma, general convulsions, etc., the patient’s family should let the patient rest in place and avoid strenuous activities. If the patient has fever, physical cooling can be performed through ice packs, while recording the time, frequency and severity of symptoms such as headache, vomiting, fever, stiff neck, etc., and promptly take the patient to the doctor.
If the patient’s condition is serious and symptoms such as syncope, coma, general convulsions and mental disorder appear, the family should immediately call 120 emergency and brake the patient in time. If the patient also shows violent vomiting, the patient should immediately be made to lie on his or her side and clean his or her mouth of foreign substances as much as possible to avoid asphyxiation.
