Crush injuries are not as prevalent as one may guess. Or are they? Crush injuries and rhabdomyolysis go hand in hand. The presenter will discuss how and why crush injuries are dangerous as well as how to treat them. Additionally, it will become apparent that in many cases, the crush and its after effects are more dangerous than the injury itself. This course is ideally best for basic to advanced field providers. The presenter will discuss the physiology of a crush injury/crush syndrome, the appropriate treatments of a patient with a crush injury, and how to identify personal safety concerns regarding incidents involving crush injuries.
