BRING LUNCH FOR THE DAY!!

What Dr Chris Hill came back to us for this course and I've sent to the tutors.

I work on the “plan for the worst, hope for the best” saying in that we should be able to manage a severely injured patient for 24 hours with what we can carry in by foot.
 
So focusing on :
 
1) Managing life threatening injuries over the first hour, again, focusing on the big things
-Head injury
-Long bone fractures
-Pelvic fractures
-Major haemorrhage
 
2)Preventing deterioration 
-Managing hypothermia
-Preventing worsening brain injury
-Preventing further bleeding e.g.tranexamic acid
-Maybe the use of off site medical advice here?
 
3)Packaging and transport
-Handover to medical
-Analgesia is an important one
 
4)Managing medical conditions, again, focusing where we can make a difference
-Stroke
-MI
-Diabetes
-Asthma
-Anaphylaxis
 
I also note the discussion on defibrillation.  The chance of surviving an IN HOSPITAL cardiac arrest and getting discharged home is slim, so if someone in the backcountry has arrested, either due to trauma or heart attack, the chances of defibrillation changing the outcome is almost zero.
 
We as a medical profession have also become heavily protocol driven as practicing has become increasingly complex.  Part of that is having pre-prepared kits, with a guideline attached.
 
I am sure this would be useful for the personnel who only occasionally manage patients.  I haven’t seen much of this in SAR, but it may already exist.
 
Protocolizing things like stroke, asthma or anaphylaxis is relatively easy and the norm now.
