Doctor insights on:
Response to horror: I agree with dr. Rao about feeling shock, bewilderment, and fear when seeing something disturbing like mutilation and murder. The person also often feels helpless -- not able to do anything in the situation. Also, some have dissociative symptoms: numbness, detachment, decreased emotional responsiveness; reduced awareness of surroundings; derealization; depersonalization; sometimes amnesia too. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

On emergency situations which peoples go anxious(or shocked) which medicine class commonly is usable?
Benzodiazepines: Benzos such as ativan, valium, and xanax are probably the most commonly used medicines for acute anxiety. They're fast acting and good for short term relief, but are addictive and have a withdrawal syndrome if over used.

Static Electricity: See: http://www.electrostatics.net/articles/static_shocks.htmGet a more detailed answer ›
Static shock: In the winter, when the air is dry and conducts electricity poorly, and you walk with dry shoes, especially with rubber soles, across a wool rug, your body accumulates a charge that in moist air would spontaneously leave. Then when you touch a metal point which goes to ground, the charge you have accumulated jumps to the ground and you feel the static shock. This is harmless but gets your notice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Supply & demand: Shock occurs when blood flow isn't enough to meet the body's energy needs. Usually, the blood pressure and/or output of the heart is low-the tissues of the body don't get enough oxygen due to inadequate blood flow/perfusion. Sometimes, if the energy requirements of the body are high (hypermetabolic), then seemingly normal supply just isn't enough to meet the demand. ...Read more
Totally depends on : type: septic, hemorrhagic/hypovolemic, cardiogenic, anaphylactic, neurogenic, metabolic, pulmonic. The end commonality in all is that you get vascular dilation so severe that the blood pressure ultimately bottoms out and you don't get perfusion to critical organs causing multi organ system failure. In the ICU we give patients pressors to maintain their BP. The brain & heart take the biggest hits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible for a mentally disturbed person (perhaps in a state of shock) to feel the presence (mentally & physically) of an imaginary person?
This is totally not : my area of expertise, but I have always found it fascinating. "Mental illness" comes in many flavors. When you say "shock" I don't think you are referring to the medical definition, but perhaps derealization or depersonalization. If I am correct, then absolutely, a person in that state can painfully experience that as a hallucination, part of psychosis. TLE seizures cause Shadowman phenomenon too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My brother gets shocked by many things he touches, He even gets shocked by the kitchen sink. Do you know why he's always getting shocked.
Static: Your brother is getting shocked because of static electricity that builds up on the outside of his body. When he touches an object that is grounded, the electricity discharges and he gets a shock. Does he drag or shuffle his feet? This could cause increased static buildup. This is a common occurrence and it is harmless. ...Read more
