Trauma Patient Assessment

What do you think about this video?

C.J. Quinn: mariothemario Wouldnt you want to check her CIRCULATION BEFORE C collar

C.J. Quinn: Safari Johnson DEFFINATELY NOT A FAIL! They based this SOLEY on New York State Protocol. In protocol you peel back the clove for CTC (Color Temperature Condition)

C.J. Quinn: When assessing her lower extremity pms you forgot to ask her to resist pressure up and down. Also rapid assessment would be right before load and go. Overall very good assessment 8/10 if i was doing your pracrical.👍

C.J. Quinn: SAMPLE Taking into account the patient is a female you MUST ask her last menstrul cycle

C.J. Quinn: Breathing you forgot its 4 feels abcs in the bases (bay-c's) when you log roll its 6 feels in the back

newls1: fantastic job... i love the gun in background.. LOL

Patrick McGoff: Aced my trauma patient assessment yesterday! Thanks for the help!

idkyetdou: The beginning of this video was hilarious! Then it was informative and really helped me! Thanks! :D

RicksReefs: You may know of it as PMS

lessedu: its so stupid, you trying to be funny but dont try so hard, :/

BlueJFilms: Glad I could help. Keep in mind, in the real world, many of these steps happen in a couple of seconds. It feels like it takes forever to get to the vitals because everything needs to be verbalized.

Fritz Vanderhoffen: Thanks for the response! It makes a lot more sense now, knowing that the stuff after ABC's don't have to be exactly in the same order. The one they gave me had us doing vitals almost at the end.

BlueJFilms: The scene size up and primary assessment are mandatory first steps. After that, not everything needs to be in exact order. If the EMT determines the patient is a priority, transport may be initiated after patient is moved to backboard. And always check the posterior if moving a patient to a backboard.

Fritz Vanderhoffen: Are you guys talking about the primary assessment/rapid scan or during the secondary assessment? I ask because the patient assessment sheet they gave us listed checking the posterior during the 2ndary assessment, but they should already be on a backboard, so how do we do that? Apologies if this is a repeat, and thanks for the videos!

BlueJFilms: A secondary injury is a non-life-threatening injury that can wait to be treated. Always treat life-threatening injuries before moving to the next problem. If you have any other questions, please feel free to message me.

BlueJFilms: Before you place the collar, you need to check everything in the neck area. This includes the c-spine, TD and JVD. And before you place the patient on the board, you will assess their back. The patient needs to be log-rolled onto the board. This creates a perfect opportunity to check their posterior.

BlueJFilms: This scenario is non-threatening and follows the NYS Pt Trauma Assessment exactly in order. If you have a life-threatening issue that necessitates getting off scene quickly, protect the c-spine and cover your ABCs. After that, you may finish assessments and vitals in the ambulance.

BlueJFilms: Absolutely. You need to finish the initial assessment and ABCs on scene, but you can complete the assessment in the back of an ambulance. For example, think of a skier in a cold environment. You don't want to expose them to the elements if it is not necessary.

JoshRodas: Is that uncomfortable? Yes. Can you breath good? Yes. Perfect.

kittywaymo: Very well done!

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
