Self explanatory you would think...but apparently not.
It’s disgusting to hear one of my colleagues was seriously assaulted outside the front of one of our local hospitals in the early hours of this morning. Thank you to the police and security who came to his aid and apprehended the offender.
We go to work to help the community and shouldn’t need to fear for our own safety, but increasingly we do. It isn’t right!
Wishing my colleague a speedy recovery 😞
We have successfully conducted two workshops from our Series of First Aid Workshops, and the rest are scheduled as per the post!
REGISTER NOW‼️ Link in bio!
3. Closed wounds emergencies - Sprains, dislocations, fractures, cervical/spinal immobilization.
4. Moving & Lifting techniques: Correct techniques that prevent further harm or injuries to the patient.
5. Medical emergencies 1- Stroke, Seizures, Respiratory distress, Electric shock.
6. Medical emergencies 2 - Poisoning, Allergic reactions, snake bites, heat-related emergencies.
Certificates will be provided to the students at the end of each workshop!
This is my exact location right this second!
What3words is a cool app which uses three words to explain your exact location (a 3m by 3m square) so someone can find you should you get into trouble and a post code won’t find you easily. I’ve seen both positive and negative reviews of it but I personally think it’s an asset to people who go out walking or run events or work where there is no specific location.
Once you’ve found your three word location you can either tell it to someone or click navigate here and get the GPS coordinates which someone can take and use to find you. It’s still early days so not all emergency services are using it and a few people are saying it’s a bit gimmicky and potentially unnecessary but I personally think anything like this that can help save a life by finding someone quickly is a good thing.
Have a download and a play and let me know what you think!
Every call is different and equally important. We are likely entering the worst day of someone’s life each time the tones drop. That’s why we take a knee, get on our patient’s level and provide comfort and understanding along with top-notch medical care.

Torsion of the umbilical cord in the mare can be a cause of fetal death and abortion, commonly seen in mid-to late gestation.
Length of the umbilicus is considered a contributing factor. Measured lengths of less than 84 cm (33 in) are considered normal.
Abortion due to umbilical torsion ranges in studies from 2.4-6.0% (USA), to 35.7% in UK!
The causes of umbilical torsion are not completely understood. However cords from torsion cases average greater than 85 cm in length.
Most abortions due to umbilical cord torsion occur in months 6-8 of gestation. Mobility is highest in months 4-7 of gestation, providing the greatest opportunity.
Pregnancies where the gravid horn was opposite the horn of implantation may be correlated with longer umbilical cords.
Other potential contributing factors include increased fetal activity, excessive fetal fluids and uterine dimensions.
Careful examination of the expelled fetal membranes must be performed since twisting of the umbilicus alone does not confirm a diagnosis.
We attended one case yesterday with over 15 twists! ( Average number of twists in healthy pregnancy is 4.4), congestion of the placenta vessels, severe edema of the umbilical cord and death of the fetus.
The foal died and abortion took its natural course, at our arrival the foal was presenting at the cervical canal in a “dog sitting” position with both for limbs flexed and both hind foot coming cranially. Dog-sitting dystocia is quite uncommon; a foal that is positioned in a dog-sitting posture is very unlikely to survive delivery.
Mare is doing well and suffered no damages or further complications. #yourhorsehealthisourpriority #equinevet#dedicatedvets#southernhighlands#horsevet#vetoncall
I quickly pulled over onto the side of a busy highway as I saw out the corner of my eye a destroyed motorcycle, 2 bodies laying about 3 foot away from each other, and a banged up looking car with dents on the side with an anxious looking driver....immediately I think: motorcycle vs car.. With ejection of motorcyclists at high speeds. I run over as fast as I could to the two motorcyclists. A quick primary survey: ABC's intact. Phew. Thankfully both motorcyclists were wearing helmets and are A&Ox3... GCS15. One person appear slightly sluggish to respond and somewhat dazed. His helmet is badly banged up and he is pale. I watch him closely and instruct them to lay flat onto their backs and to refrain from moving their necks. 911 is called. I await the police and ems and continue assessing them.. Aside from multiple diffuse abrasions and lacerations.. No obvious life threatening injuries. I hand off report of the accident to ems when they arrive and I get back to my car and drive home. As I reflect back on this incident... It shocks me just how naturally and nonchalantly I handled the whole situation.. And that's all because of my training in emergency medicine. I'm reminded just how broadly applicable the skill sets we gain in emergency medicine are both inside and outside of the hospital, and for that I am so grateful. Thankfully both of the people in this situation were stable, and did not require acute intervention. But it did prompt me to think about carrying an emergency kit in my car with some necessary supplies from now on...in case I happen upon a future scenario where I may need to intervene.... Do any physicians/EMS personnel out there carry an emergency kit with them at all times? If so, what's in it?

Thredbo’s fire truck has its snow chains on with the snow dumping down this week. Remember to take care and drive to the conditions if you’re travelling through snowy areas of NSW, so firefighters don’t have to rescue you on the road.
