Podcast Episode 20: TBI Round Table and Case Discussion

This podcast is a follow up from our last post on managing traumatic brain injuries in austere environments.  We included a scenario discussion with David, Jamie, Daryl, Jay, Doug and I with much needed answers to some frequently asked questions.

What are your priorities?  How do you assess in the field without labs and imagery?  Do you include severe TBI injuries in your trauma training?  What if he also has a pelvis injury or internal bleeding?  When do you take the airway, if at all?  When do you provide positive pressure ventilation in these patients?  Can it be dangerous?
