Clinical Case 135: Tackling Trauma in the Bush
October 24, 2016
This vodcast is a version of the talk I gave last week at the ACEM Annual Scientific meeting in Perth.
We were asked to present a “challenging case” – I decided to present a trauma case that I think represents the maturation of my trauma practice.
The case is pretty straightforward. However, there are a few concepts thrown in that you may not have heard before. Airway management, massive transfusion, head injury… it is a tough case.
Let me know what you think or if you have any comments.
Hi Casey, That was great thanks. Can I just ask you a couple of things – I just wanted to ask about c-spine. How did you know he didn’t have a c-spine injury? Did you check and know that he was unlikely to have a neck injury from your first assessment and would your management have changed if you thought he did?
2. Are cell savers used and useful where you are for haemorrhage?
