Podcast 007: Eye trauma with Dr Seb Rubinzstein-Dunlop
In this episode I catch up with Dr Sebastian Runbinzstein-Dunlop, a fellow Broome Doc who has an interest in Eye stuff. Seb is rare in that he has actually been in a remote situation where he has done decompressive lateral canthotomy to save an eye. So here we chat about the types of scenarios, symptoms his approach to Eye Trauma and how exactly one might do this procedure.

Hope this saves you a bit of anxiety and somebody’s vision one day. Good luck, Casey.
PS: In a curious coincidence – less than 24 hours after we recorded this podcast Dr Seb was confronted with his second solo canthotomy!
