Exclamation First Aid- how would you handle this accident? (Video is GRAPHIC)

This is a great video about a bicycle crash.

https://youtube.com/watch?v=EZgw0rY140

The rider is not going to fast & not going downhill

For those who have taken a first aid class, how do you think you would have done???

The people with him do a great job-
Direct pressure
Clear communication
-call medic
- it has to hurt to work
- speaking with the patient
- direct pressure on the wound
- keeping them comfortable- cushion for head- sun out of eyes

It was kinda pointless to tell the patient to apply direct pressure as he only has muscles to hold down and that is at an bad angle

The knee on the hands worked wonders

First thing I'd have done was get the pants/shorts off him completely so I could access the site better.

Not much you can do with that besides keeping pressure on it. It takes a surprising amount of strength to do it too.

Keeping him talking and calm is good.
Putting pressure on the wound is more efficient if the pt is on a hard surface. Not grass.
Keep him warm. Shock.
No fluids by mouth.

The only things that saved him was a buddy stopped to help and called medics/helo.

If this was out in the boonies (no comms) he would have died IMO.
Lucky.

What was the injury? Looked like a deep laceration to his right thigh or groin. I couldn't watch the vid, too bouncy making it hard to concentrate on what the actually injury was.

At one point they kept talking about "pull it" out like it was an impalement, then about pissing blood...did they mean they had an arterial squinter?

Most don't make it with a femoral injury unless surgery is real close. If its just torn, pack it off and get as much pressure to it as you can.

Did the guy make it ?.

Evidently the guy made it and was a doctor so he knew he was likely to die

Still need the pressure, but seems to cut down the blood loss.

Stop the bleeding.

Start the breathing.

Protect the wound.

Treat for shock.

If you don't know how to do those things, learn.

The correct tool for the job is a junctional tourniquet.

It is a serious video.

I watched it for the very fact that if something like that happens to me or a member of my group, I would not freeze up.

Great vid thanks for posting definitely food for thought.

Probably, but darn those things are pricey!

Obviously, worth it if you need it, but have to guess probabilities.

I spent (lots) more on an AED, but I have medical reasons to think the probability justifies.
