Intramuscular Injection Sites

You are called to the scene of a 42 year old male in severe pain. When you arrive, you find your patient extremely anxious and scared. He has swelling and burns on his lips and on the skin around his mouth. You DO NOT want your patient to vomit, because you have a very high index of suspicion toward which of the following causes:

a) Flash burn to the face and airway
b) Radiation exposure
c) Corrosive material ingestion
d) Compartment syndrome

Prinzmetal's angina or variant angina is ischemic chest pain, THAT OCCURS AT REST as a result of a vasospasm in one of the coronary arteries.

What Do You Need to Know?!
★Prinzmetal’s angina almost always occurs when a person is at rest.
★Pain usually occurs between midnight and early morning
★Pain is usually substernal and can radiate to the neck, jaw, shoulder, or arm
★ST segment elevation occurs during episodes of chest pain then disappears promptly as chest pain resolves
★Can be treated with Nitroglycerin

Brown-Sequard syndrome is caused by injury to one side of the spinal cord. The damage to the one side results in sensory and motor loss to that one side of the body. Pain and temperature perception are lost on the opposite side of the body because of the switching of the associated nerves as they enter the spinal cord. is caused by a penetrating injury to one side of the spinal cord.

Why is a heart attack that afflicts the left coronary artery called the "widowmaker"?

The coronary arteries are the sole suppliers of clean arterial blood to the heart muscle itself. They deliver 200 -250 mL of blood to the myocardium per minute at rest.The left coronary artery carries about 85% of the blood supply to the heart, while the right coronary artery carries the remainder. The coronary arteries begin just above the aortic valve where the aorta exits the heart.

The left main coronary artery supplies the left ventricle, interventricular septum, and parts of the right ventricle. The two main branches are the left anterior descending and the circumflex arteries. The right coronary artery supplies the right atrium & right ventricle. It supplies a small part of the left ventricle and the conduction system. It's two main branches are the right anterior descending and the marginal branch. In addition to the two main arteries many smaller connections between arterioles provides backup circulation.

I HAD One of These!! Sitting on my Motorcycle at a traffic light! 85% blockage of all 4 left-side coronary branches! Yet I did NOT have any 'preliminary indicators' -- no high-blood-pressure, no high cholesterol levels, etc -- and was very physically active... The only 'indicator' that I failed to recognize was 'easy perspiration' when it wasn't actually very warm, or after only a small amount of exertion, but I didn't feel 'tired'...i just sweated for almost no reason... But obviously, I DID live to tell about it... perhaps because the rest of my body WAS in pretty good condition -- mostly muscular and fairy low 'excess body fat' rather than "a beer gut" and abdominal fat -- and by the Grace of GOD... 🙂

Your patient is having trouble controlling their own airway so, you decide to insert an OPA but you have several sizes in the airway bag to choose from. What is the proper technique to size an OPA for an adult?

a) They are sized from 1 to 5 depending on height
b) Measure from the tip of the nose to the tip of the patient's ear.
c) Measure from the corner of the patient's lips to the tip of the earlobe or angle of jaw.
d) There is only 1 adult size and 1 child size

Right now you can get 3 months for the price of 2!

Breathing In and Out
Inspiratory phase: When the muscles contract, the chest cavity increases in size as the diaphragm moves downward and the ribs are pulled outward by the intercostal muscles. This produces a slight negative pressure inside the cavity causing the lungs to expand; drawing air in.
Expiratory phase: During the expiratory phase the reverse occurs. The diaphragm relaxes and moves upward, and the intercostal muscles relax as the chest returns to resting position. The chest cavity shrinks, creating a positive pressure on the lungs. They return to their smaller resting state, pushing air out of the alveoli and back through the lower and upper airways into the atmosphere.

You are triaging patients at a mass casualty incident where a bus has driven through a fast food restaurant. You encounter a responsive 20 year old male with a respiratory rate of 26 breaths/min. What should you do next?

a) Administer oxygen via nasal cannula at 6 liter per minute
b) Assess for pulses
c) Triage him as a red tag
d) Auscultate the patient's lung sounds

QRS Breakdown!

P wave - depolarization of the atria

PR Interval - distance between the beginning of the P wave and the beginning of
the QRS complex; measures time during which a depolarization wave travels from the atria to the ventricles.

QRS complex - depolarization of the ventricles

Q wave - first negative deflection

R wave - first positive deflection

S wave - first negative deflection after the R wave

ST segment - distance between the S wave and the beginning of the
T-wave - measures time between ventricles depolarization and the beginning of repolarization.

QT Interval- distance between beginning of the QRS to the end of the T wave; represents total ventricular activity

Blunt cardiac injury is most frequently caused by traffic accidents and results from a direct blow to the chest from a steering wheel or rapid deceleration. A direct blow to the precordium or a sustained force to the thoracic wall compresses the heart between the sternum and spine. In rapid deceleration accidents the heart, which has relatively free movement in the anteroposterior direction, continues to move forward due to its momentum and strikes the internal sternum with considerable force.

★Other less frequent causes are:
- Falls from a great height
- Sport injuries
- Blast forces
★Signs and Symptoms include:
- Irregular heartbeat
- Signs of a MI or ACS
- Chest pressure or discomfort
- Radiating pain
- Shortness of breath

b) Administer the child's bronchodilators with medical control orders
c) Administer oxygen therapy
d) Assist him in to the tripod position to help facilitate breathing

Quick Reference: Posterior Surface Anatomy

You are called to a local residence for seizure activity. On scene you are met by a frantic mother that states her 13 months old infant had been sick with a fever for a few hours when he began to "shake uncontrollably" for about 45 seconds. The infant is now postictal and breathing well. What is the most likely cause of the signs and symptoms?

a) The infant may be an epileptic
b) The infant's fever may have caused a febrile seizure
c) The infant is most likely dehydrated causing a tonic/clonic seizure
d) The infant may be hypoxic causing the signs and symptoms
