Here’s the video from March 2018’s consultant education, on the theme of traumatic arrest.
It includes a case discussion of a gunshot wound to the chest in a young women with cardiac arrest, a talk on the management of traumatic arrest and the utility of CPR, and finally a discussion on ED thoracotomy.
The quality’s not great and we lost the AV halfway through, so I’ve patched in a PowerPoint presentation of the second part.
There’s also a video from the Alfred procedures course on thoracotomy- please don’t distribute this further, as it’s released to candidates on the course only.
Hope you enjoy, please post any comments or questions and we’ll attempt to answer them.
