“I’ve Got a Crush on You”: Dealing with Crush Injuries in EMS

“I’ve Got a Crush on You”: Dealing with Crush Injuries in EMS

Why isn’t the systemic effect of crushing you hand the same as crushing your leg? What happens that makes crush injuries distinctive from other trauma injuries? In this session, we will go over crush injuries from start to finish. What happens at the moment a heavy weight hits the body and what we need to do before that weight comes off. We will review some common medications in EMS that we need to have available in order to improve your patient’s outcome and why they should be given.
