Venous vs. Arterial bleeding.

We broke down a video we saw on @the_ems_lounge page the other day.😂
The guys in the video couldn’t figure out what was going on, so we spelled it out for them. They might need it 😅
This is a good example of venous vs arterial bleeding. The first gun shot misses the artery and blood eventually trickles out. The second gun shot hit an artery, immediately spraying blood everywhere. It’s crazy to see the pressure difference our vasculature is under.

Let me be clear:

I recently saw a video posted on social media of a guy using paracord for an improvised tourniquet. There were a ton of positive comments relating to the post. Unfortunately, all of them were incorrect to believe a tourniquet can be improvised out of paracord and the accompanying video showed a very poor example.

Why no paracord as a TQ?
Because it is not wide enough to stop a severe arterial bleed, will cause tissue damage and it would be extremely painful as if normal TQ when applied correctly isn’t painful enough.

Bottom Line:
Don’t fall for the hype of a paracord tourniquet. Buy, carry and, if needed, use a commercially available tourniquet such as the CAT Gen7 or the SOFT-T. During a worst case scenario you don’t want to improvise a TQ if you don’t have to. Be prepared! Seek out appropriate medical/trauma training.

Drowning can be fast and silent, but it can be prevented too Drowning doesn’t always look like it does on TV. A few simple, intentional steps can significantly lower the risk.

We all know someone like this 😂👇

Australian Tactical Medical Association

The largest systematic review on the prehospital use of haemostatic dressings conducted to date, reviewing 17 studies utilising various methodology and over 800 civilian and military patients in a range of countries.

The authors have found haemostatics appear to offer effective traumatic haemorrhage control, however, there is sparsity of high-quality evidence to precisely define its optimal use.

There is most certainly justification and precedent for further RCTs!

Do you use haemostatics in your practice?

While the hype around the announced #spaceforce has every meme maker salivating, there are many questions that should have our followers in mental overdrive as well! Just to get the conversation started here are a few off the top of our heads...
1) How would you provide point of injury care... in a zero gravity, zero oxygen environment in a space suit??? 🤔🤯 Tactical Combat Casualty Care - TCCC - DoD Committee on TCCC Next Generation Combat Medic
2) Is prolonged space care (psc) the next frontier? 👨🏽‍🚀👩‍🚀 Prolonged Field Care
3) How do you recover and medevac said casualty? 🚀 USAF PARARESCUE
4) What if aliens DO exist? 👽 NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration Corpsman

Tampons are not for gsw bleeding control.

Calling all keyboard commandos and Hollywood “providers” with good intentions- this is NOT medicine! Injecting a tampon into a GSW might absorb a little blood but is NOT an effective method for achieving bleeding control!!! It does NOT apply any direct pressure to the source of bleeding! Pack axial wounds with gauze (hemoststic like Combat Gauze preferred)!!! Bonus points if you realize that for a wound from navel to larynx you simply place occlusive dressing over the entry AND exit wounds. Judging from the responses to our story yesterday, too many people are getting their medicine from questionable sources 🤦‍♂️ Video from @clivestanden — the best of intentions don’t guarantee good medicine!

Beware the avocado

Tourniquet - yes or no?

Repost By @mrs_angemi
This patient severed an artery in her hand while cutting an avocado.🥑🔪
If you cut yourself and you hit a blood vessel- how can you tell if it’s a vein or an artery??
Veins tend to slowly leak. Remember veins are brining deoxygenated blood back to the heart. But arteries are the squirters- like in this video. It is cool to see how the circulatory system works! Arteries are brining oxygenated blood to all of the organs and all of the extremities throughout the body. Each time the heart beats you can see it squirt, squirt, squirt. The heart is working hard to get oxygen around the body.
She has had surgical repair and is doing fine. There is a small scar on her hand and she is having difficulty moving her ring finger now.
