We've all heard the saying "hydrate or die", well, how do you deal with someone who didn't hydrate and is now dying? Ever hear of a sucking chest wound? That's a trick question. All chest wounds suck. Seriously though, a collapsed lung can result from a number of traumas. From blunt force and broken ribs to a gunshot wound. Knowing how to decompress that lung could buy you enough time to get the casualty out of harm's way.
This class will teach you how to: start and discontinue an IV, identify and treat a variety of pleural injuries, and the equipment that you will need to add to your kit to be ready for these types of emergencies.
