Video: Watch as a police officer manages the first critical minutes of a stabbing
This episode of the Reel Emergency Vodcast, includes footage from a police officer’s bodycam as he manages the first critical minutes of a stabbing. Listen as he treats the patient’s wound and manages the scene until EMS arrives.
The wound is in the hip and groin area, a spot where it is extremely difficult to gain control of the bleeding. This patient also happens to be receiving CPR from his wife, who is being instructed by the dispatcher.
You’ll also hear an incredibly helpful cadaver dissection to explain the anatomy and physiology of the pelvic girdle.
Join Drs. Antevy, Spiro and Piehl who review this case with special guests Marvin Wayne, Scotty Bolletor and Zach Dunlap.
