Webinar Details

Date: Wednesday November 23, 2016

Presented by:

Wayde Diamond, Critical Care Flight Paramedic (Ornge)

Dr. Randy Wax, Transport Medicine Physician (Ornge)

Dr. Mike Lewell, Regional Medical Director (SWORBHP)

Brief Description:

Brief Description: This webinar is based upon a real response that occurred recently in southern Ontario, where multiple responders worked to treat and rescue a man trapped beneath a 50,000 lb. concrete wall. The entrapment was prolonged and complicated. The case study focuses on crush syndrome and hemorrhage, and the evidence-based approach to management.

This case discussion will also highlight the trauma physiology associated with crush injuries. We will discuss how the understanding of crush syndrome and rhabdomyolysis applies to a variety of other cases that paramedics respond to on a daily basis. Additionally, the case involved a response by the hospital site trauma team for possible amputation which creates a unique situation for inter-disciplinary function in the field.
