TREATING THE PATIENTS

Not all runs are created equal. Mass casualty incidents, like an active shooter, are a different kind of run and being prepared to prioritize and treat multiple patients at once is crucial to patient survivability. Penetrating trauma, like a gunshot wound, is likely in these types of high-threat situations. Controlling life-threatening hemorrhaging with a tourniquet and decreasing tension pneumothorax with a chest seal are critical components to control bleeding and reduce mortality in these situations. Be prepared to improve MCI outcomes with the right supplies. #swaythestats
