Mail call, didn’t expect that we’d get these in time for Rifle Dynamics Red Oktober Kalashnikov Championship but somehow the shipping from Ukraine was pretty quick! If you like the traditional look of the Soviet style tourniquet wrapped around a genuine Russian pressure dressing on your triangle stock, we will have a few for sale. If you like a more modern version, we will have our Velcro cordura stock pouch wrap, with or without a med kit. Come say hi to 3C Medical and MOD Outfitters this upcoming weekend.

All antibiotics are not the same…and if you think this chart is complicated, just know that the resistance patterns are regional. Don’t self-treat and guess at antibiotic therapy. Get a medical evaluation!!

Help Dugan Ashley with Multiple Sclerosis Expenses, organized by Max Glaser

Though we don’t know him first hand, I saw his plea for help and haven’t been able to get it out of my head. Such a terrible and debilitating disease in such a young guy with little kids. I wish I had connections in this area to get him help, but I don’t know if it even exists… see his situation in comments below.

We loved teaching the first half of Mountain Medicine at UVU —Utah Valley University Wasatch campus. The students mostly had no medical training, but stayed engaged, and asked intelligent, relevant questions. We really enjoyed this class! Topics covered included waterborne illness ant treatment, how to make water safe, frostbite and hypothermia, heat illness and dehydration in high altitude, and complete wound care, from abrasions to tourniquets. Can’t wait til next week, we cover altitude illness and splinting as well as building your own Med kit :)

A nightmare repair for sure, but this patient was hiking in a pretty remote location and jumped off a rock, causing the femur (thigh bone) to crush the tibial spine (attachment area for the ACL ligament. This particular fracture likely extended to the PCL ligament as well, causing complete instability of the knee.

How did she get out of the woods, and avoid moving the fracture pieces completely out of place? Her hiking buddy had a couple of homemade splints made out of some type of chicken wire, which he placed on the sides of the knee, and firmly wrapped the knee with an ace wrap, creating a homemade splint. It worked so well, she didn’t come for X-rays for 2 days 😐

The SAM splints in our Off-road Med kits and our Hiker —more compact kit— are padded aluminum splints, so much more comfortable than wire…but any splint you have is better than the one you don’t.

FDA: N95 masks should no longer be reused

This right here...this is why politics/government and healthcare/science should never mix. The science is now dictated based on availability of supplies!!!!??????? The science NEVER changed. The cdc should be held responsible for every healthcare worker death and illness since arbitrarily changing PPE recommendations for healthcare workers that have been in place and unchanged for 30 years that ive worked in healthcare. We NEVER reused any masks, n95 or surgical. It was a known infection control rule forever. All the healthcare workers infected and killed by covid were due to reusing masks. Tragic.

https://www.ems1.com/ems-products/personal-protective-equipment-ppe/articles/fda-n95-masks-should-no-longer-be-reused-Qr8JClFmGhZMVMiE/

The federal agency recommended using one mask per patient due to an increased PPE supply

Rifle GSW under the chin, exited through the orbit and soft tissues of the temple, destroying the mandible, left maxilla and upper teeth, and left orbital floor. Required massive facial reconstruction, but lived.

One of the most satisfying procedures...shoulder dislocation reduction! Our group uses a combination of techniques with fantastic results and minimal discomfort to patients. Video in comments!

We combine the following techniques:

External Rotation

— arm is slowly adducted, elbow flexed to 90 degrees and then slow external rotation applied
—External rotation should be stopped each time patient has pain and then continued when patient relaxed
—Success rate from 80-90%

AND

Scapular Manipulation
—Aim is to reposition glenoid fossa
—Can be quick and generally tolerated well by patients, but need assistance and can be difficult to identify borders in obese patients
—Patient seated with affected arm in slight traction held at forward flexion to 90 degrees.
—Stabilize superior aspect of scapula with one hand while adducting the inferior tip
—Success rate >85%

AND

Cunningham
—No assistance, analgesia, or sedation
—Patient sitting up with back vertical preferably on chair and have them shrug shoulder superiorly and posteriorly. Move arm so it is adducted and elbow flexed at 90 degrees and have patient’s hand rest on operator’s upper arm or shoulder
—Apply gentle traction downwards while massaging trapezius, deltoid, and biceps until reduction occurs but typically no sound or “clunk” is felt.

Not all lacerations require antibiotics to prevent or treat infection. But some are very high risk for infection. Dog and cat bites, and especially human bites are high risk for very particular organisms. They frequently become infected, and are most times not sutured. Why? Because closing those wounds around bacteria essentially creates an abscess.

Shellfish wounds are another category considered high risk for infection. Specifically Vibrio. This is a very dangerous bacteria that can quickly establish infection, spreading rapidly and leading to amputation and even death.

Antibiotics, such as Cipro, can treat this bacteria if started early.

If you notice redness, milky drainage, increasing swelling and pain after one of these high-risk wounds, seek medical care early.

Just a little follow up on the free Narcan overdose kits for Utah residents. We got our kits in the mail, and I thought initially it was an auto injector, but it’s actually two Narcan vials with syringes and needles good for two doses. This kit is meant for laypeople, and there is some training on administering it in the one hour course, and also instructions in the package. This kit is free under a grant, and any Utah resident can take the training and receive one, no questions asked, free of charge. Possession of the kit is legal, and any prescriber can prescribe Narcan to any person without having any provider-patient relationship or medical record encounter. Next training March 17, sign up here:

Normally, blood vessels are not easily seen on X-ray, but calcified arteries, usually seen in advanced age or in those with atherosclerosis and other forms of vascular disease are seen in these images. I posted them because it is a great visual demonstration of how large the blood vessels that course through the extremities are. It’s easy to see how breaking bones can sever these large arteries with the sharp bone ends, causing a lot of bleeding internally or externally.

You can also see why stopping bleeding with a tourniquet is easier the lower it is applied: the arteries get smaller and there is less tissue to compress the more distal (farther from the torso) you get.

This is why tourniquets work best applied 2-3 inches above a wound, rather than “high and tight”, which is a phrase developed for treating patients while “under fire”, or being shot at. Wartime military and even civilian tactical situations require different rules, as they don’t have time to assess where the wound is. In order to make sure a tourniquet isn’t being applied below a wound, they teach and practice “high and tight”.

Gary Hughes posted our new 3C Medical ballistic pad insert, custom made to fit the Vanquest Tough-Built Gear messenger bag. With some help from my colleagues (thanks Dr. Leavitt!!) I wanted to show how much coverage the pad provides. This pad provides protection up to .44 magnum.

Protect yourself and your beloved nurse, paramedic, or your medical provider at work. Sold as an add-on to the messenger bag, or buy one for your own bag or backpack.
