how much blood loss is fatal?

Q: 

how much can STRESS DO to a Person ?

A: Stress can be fatal, and stress can also be ameliorative. There is no life without stress, but if you feel so strongly that your level of stress is maladaptive you should seek treatment. It can kill you, actually. See Karoshi. Can you elaborate on what is stressing you out? Work? School? Do you take any drugs that might have the side effect of making you feel this way?

Q: 

how much Radiation can the Human Body Safely Receive?

A: Since the advent of nuclear energy and space travel, humans have been exposed to radiation more frequently and it has become a hot topic. There are various different things that we call “radiation”, but the type that damages humans is composed of either electromagnetic waves or atomic nuclei, which do their damage through ionization – knocking the electrons in our atoms off their orbits. If a human is exposed to too much radiation, it can cause damage, sometimes making it impossible for certain cells to continue replacing themselves, which can be fatal. Radiation absorbed by tissue is measured in rads, where a rad is a hundredth of a joule...

Q: 

how Do I Treat a Rat Bite?

A: To treat a rat bite, you first will need to stop any resulting bleeding, clean the wound with antiseptic or peroxide, and cover the wound with gauze or a disposable bandage. Depending on the origin of the rat, meaning whether it was domestic or wild, you may need to seek medical attention to rule out the possibility of getting rabies. Keep a watch on the wound for several days afterward to ensure you do not come down with rat-bite fever, and seek a doctor’s care if you begin to exhibit any symptoms. Rats have very long teeth, and bites can be rather deep, so bleeding can be steady and sometimes severe for several moments. To prevent too much blood loss, place a...
