TIPS FOR ATTACKS

Here there'll be things that could help you in attacks, such as areas susceptible to injury or which cause instant death.


Area: Vagus Nerve (functions heart rate)

Nervus vagus belongs to parasympathetic nervous system which inhibits the contraction of heart, decreases it's excitability and frequency of generated nerve impulses in heart. By overstimulating n.vagus these effects on heart are more intense - it could lead to total inhibition of heart contractions, which would eventually lead to death within a little while.


Attack: Slamming the adversary's side of the head onto either the ground, a tree or a rock. Alternatively, one could slam a rock into the adversary's head.


Area: Carotid Artery

The two carotid arteries lie in the front of the neck on either side of the trachea (windpipe) and carry blood from the heart to the brain. They supply 90% or so of the brain’s blood, with the rest coming from the two small vertebral arteries that travel along the spine and over the back-most portion of the brain. The carotids are interconnected in the brain so that in a normal individual compressing a single carotid artery will have little effect. Compressing both can cause a loss of consciousness in 15 to 20 seconds and death in 2 to 4 minutes.


Attack: If the opponent is small enough, encompassing their cervical vertebrae until reaching the trachea and severing the arteries. One would have already made an incision in the trachea or broken vertebrae so either way the adversary would come to their demise.
