To once and for all settle the High and Tight vs. 2-3 inches above the wound battle... @clutchmedic_ for the win - the answer is both - it just depends on the context of the TQ application! A key thing to remember is to always reevaluate any and all interventions once you get the situation under control, regardless whether you are in a firefight or in your home! In the heat of the moment high and tight gets the job done and stops bleeding (the goal) but once you can breath again, reassess and 2-3 inches above the wound may be the right course of action (see why having only one TQ in your kit may not be enough?). Got it???

Never remove a penetrating foreign object in the field! (there is always an exception to the rule if you want to play the what-if game)

Now that’s a big splinter! 👀
A case of a 30 year old male who had been cutting down a tree, when he fell 20 feet from the tree, and became impaled by a large piece of wood.
How would you treat this injury in the prehospital setting?
What are other concerns do you have given the height of the fall?
Would you choose to stabilize the impaled object for transport, or leave it alone?

This is ridiculous.

Not such a good idea.
An investigation was launched after a medical first responder with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and CPR instructor took her class to a cardiac arrest call at a private home.

Ok folks, feel free to guess what caused it (we don’t even know the answer, only Savage Paramedics does A)bear, B)mountain lion C)dog D)shark E)alpaca F)crocodile) BUT what we really care about is how you would treat this injury in the prehospital, austere environment? Does anything concern you more than the obvious? #whenanimalsattack #chooseyourownending #beprepared #march #wildernessmedicine #bitework #northamericanrescue

# Truth

Triad Medical Training

We stand with you in mourning, Loudoun County Sherriff's Office. RIP

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we share the sudden passing of Loudoun County Deputy First Class Justin Payne.

Justin started his career with us in April 2005 when he was hired as a patrol deputy in the Field Operations Division. He was assigned to the School Resource Officer (SRO) Unit in 2008 and served as an SRO at Sterling Middle School. He was most recently the SRO at John Champe High School.

Justin understood the importance of an SRO, showing an interest in each student’s academics and extracurricular activities. He served as a mentor to many of them and we know he touched the lives of countless others, including his brothers and sisters here at the LCSO. He also loved woodworking and often created United States flags carved out of wood for his fellow employees.

Justin also served as a member of the LCSO SWAT Team and the Rapid Response Unit.

Rest in Peace. #2379

Safety Advisory on Aluminum O2 Regulators !!!

This being being shared with permission. We want everyone to be safe and go home. All EMS, Fire, Police should check their equipment.

Last night a Vintech employee was injured at Norwalk Hospital while delivering a patient to their Emergency Room. Preliminary information shows that the oxygen regulator attached to the O2 cylinder and at the head end of the stretcher had a sudden failure which resulted in a fire subsequently burning our employee and fire damage to the nearby wall and ceiling above the stretcher.

Back in the mid-1990's, there were 16 incidents of burn injuries to health care workers and the Model L270 series of aluminum body regulators made by Life Support Products Inc. (LSP) and Allied Healthcare Products Inc. were specifically recalled. Following that, the FDA recommended in 1999 that ANY aluminum body regulators, regardless of manufacturer, be replaced by those made of brass.

Therefore, we ask that all our staff and clients immediately and thoroughly inspect their oxygen regulators on the ambulance and in storage as well as first responder equipment to verify that no regulators are still in service that are/were subject to recall or the FDA recommendation. Special attention should be made to the LSP L270-020 and L270-050 models as shown below
If there is a replacement available, we suggest that you swap out the O2 regulator with a newer, all brass version.

Regardless of manufacturer or construction, all cylinders and regulators must be clean and kept free of skin and hair oils, lubricants, grease, hair products, etc. that will burn readily in 100% oxygen. Please take a minute to wipe down cylinders and inspect the regulator and gasket to lessen the chance of a fire.

Myth Buster!
“Tourniquets work well proximal to the wound even on the forearm or leg and need not only be
on the thigh or arm as sometimes recommended.” – Kragh, et. al Practical Use of Emergency
Tourniquets to Stop Bleeding in Major Limb Trauma, Journal of Trauma 2008
Despite a 2008 article reviewing the use of 428 tourniquets in combat by absolute masters of
combat trauma, the myth still exists that you should not use a TQ in a 2 bone compartment
(lower leg or arm). In fact, their study showed a higher efficacy in the forearm(92%) vs.
arm(81%) and leg(100%) vs. thigh(73%).
High and Tight – Current CoTCCC guidelines state “Apply the limb tourniquet over the uniform
clearly proximal to the bleeding site(s). If the site of the life-threatening bleeding is not readily
apparent, place the tourniquet “high and tight” (as proximal as possible) on the injured limb and
move the casualty to cover.” This high and tight recommendation is a practical approach to
controlling hemorrhage when under fire. This allows for rapid hemorrhage control and then re-
assessment/conversion/replacement once you and the casualty are in a safe location (2-4inches
above the source of hemorrhage but not over a joint).
It is proper to place a tourniquet over clothing in “Care Under Fire” phase, but the clothing under
a tourniquet should be removed at the first opportunity to avoid loosening. Avoid placing too low
on the extremity (study showed 44% mortality if TQ was placed too low).
Hunter’s Canal (see picture) is found on the distal femur deep to the adductor tendons, where the
medial condyle of the femur protects the superficial femoral artery from compression. When TQs
were placed over this site, their efficacy dropped to 67%

Florida authorizes armed paramedics for hostage standoffs, mass shooting response Paramedics responding to mass shootings and hostage standoffs can now be armed. Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill that allows paramedics attached to SWAT teams to carry guns.

Crisis Medicine

We recently discovered “active shooter kits” being marketed to agencies and schools containing granular hemostatic agents. Granular or powdered agents fell out of favor over ten years ago as they “wash out” of actively bleeding wounds, are hard to get to the point of bleeding deep inside a wound, and in military settings, frequently blow into everyone’s eyes and faces with rotor wash. For this reason, hemostatic gauze is the preferred option. There is no hemostatic granular/powdered agent recommended by TCCC.
