For today's challenge, we're going to get to work on this happy little accident, the multisystem trauma patient. It's a rough one, but not to worry. Medics are a different breed of people. We're a helpful and happy bunch. You can do anything you want, with the right tools and enough practice. This is your world. Enough of me prattling on, getting sappy. Just smile and get to it. Let's see what we're working with. We'll strip away those clothes and see the whole canvas. Oh my. We need some happy little tourniquets for these femoral artery bleeds. A CAT for him and a SOFTT-W for her. Watch them give our friends a big ole bear hug & keep that alizarin crimson going round and round, right where it belongs. Now then, let's come right down here and pack this junctional wound with some fluffy gauze from our buddy the OLAES bandage. Hold on tight, from the inside out, and wrap her on around. Call me crazy, but why don't we let that phthalo green NPA flutter on up and settle in that right nare, just like so. You know what, we can't forget our friend the HyFin chest seal. He's got a place to set, right there, on that sucking chest wound. There he goes. It's hard to see things when you're too close. Take a step back and look and listen. Are those diminished lung sounds, with no radial pulse. Well, I'll be. We better identify that second intercostal space, midclavicular line, just above the third rib. Oh boy. There it is. Ain't that a good place for a 10 Gauge ARS needle? You know it. Man oh man. You hear that gentle whisper. Look at the equal chest rise. That's a sight to see. We better take this show on the road, because we're a traveling band. We've got people to see, in surgery. I like that. It's catchy. Don't dilly dally, because we're rolling now. I didn't forget an IV, but there's a time and place for everything. Mind your MAP and be so very gentle. Remember that salt water is for cooking pasta, not trauma resuscitation. If you use too much we're going to have a bad day. I prefer that whole blood anyway. We'll worry about what matters, for now. Don't forget to swaddle and nuzzle our friend with a space blanket like a sweater, because our love is warm like a winter..
