Because people in emergencies are in an altered state of consciousness. Words can affect the autonomic nervous system and be accepted as commands. The autonomic nervous system regulates vital bodily functions, from heart rate, bleeding, blood pressure, breathing, response, and emotional reactions, to perception of pain and many more.
That is why we say there are words, and ways in which to say them, that can mean the difference between panic and calm, pain and comfort, and even life and death.
Words are the most powerful tools and their echoes are endless …
