Today in medic class I got into a little debate with another student on a senerio, and wanted other opinions. The situation goes like this. Call for a GSW, found pt sitting on floor, leaning against wall, head down not responsive. GSW was to left temple. The debate comes in here. He wanted to leave the guy against the wall while doing a rapid trauma assessment. The guy was agional so that means trying to jaw thrust and BVM him while hes sitting against the wall. I wanted to c spine, assess ABCs, find agional breathing and lay him down to ventilate, then go on to rapid trauma. My buddy says he didnt want to move him untill he has had a chance to check him out. I just can see trying to jaw thrust and BVM someone sitting against the wall. Our instructor said both were right, just a diffrent approach. Opinions from seasoned providers? Keep in mind we are still kinda by the book, learing street methods, but focusing on registry style care. Thanks, Russ Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
