Squeeze Play: Compartment Syndrome, Crush Injury & Rhabdomyolosis


Published on

Pinned in a car for two hours, trapped in a building collapse for 12, fallen on the floor for 24. Each of these patients may be experiencing different, but deadly aspects of crush injury, compartment syndrome, and rhabdomyolysis. Why are some victims okay under pressure, but die suddenly when rescued and what, if anything, can EMS do about it? Real-world case-studies bring this presentation to life as it answers these questions and more by bringing you evidence based best practices, protocols and resources that you can use to treat these high-pressure and high-profile patients.
