A Q&A approach to the management of pelvic trauma including pelvic stabilisation, control of hemorrhage and when to scan, operate or go to the angiography suite.
Skye krobath's insight:

This Q&A approach has given a simplistic overview of the key elements to be considering with a Pelvic fracture.  It also contains a video of a technique used internationally. Whilst Queensland Ambulance Service Protocols use a different equipment type the intention is still the same: - Pelvic Immobilization.

Skye krobath's insight:

Pelvic Fractures are one of the potentially life-threatening injuries. Early detection and management at the pre-hospital setting is essential in decreasing the risk of patient de-compensation and death.  It is outlined in this article the importance of pelvic binds to reduce hypovolaemia in order to increase survival.

Skye krobath's insight:

Ambulance Victory state in their Clinical Practice Guidelines that 'in suspected fractures of the pelvis, the legs should be anatomically splinted together (to internally rotate
the feet) and the pelvis splinted with a sheet wrap or other appropriate device. This differentiates from QAS protocols as the focus on is supporting and re-establishing the pelvic structure instead of focusing on the leg rotation.

Skye krobath's insight:

This Article outlines the pathophysiolgoy of the pelvis. It incorporates the mechanism of injury internal structures to understand why it is important to detect and stabilize the patient to rectify the problem.

The Pre-hospital Management of Pelvic Fractures: Initial Consensus Statemen

Skye krobath's insight:

Pelvic injuries remain a significant cause of morbidity and mortality within the United Kingdom even with advances in hospital care. Massive haemorrhage associated with unstable pelvic fractures continues to be one of the leading causes of death. Pelvic binding devices now allow early stabilisation in the pre-hospital environment. This consensus statement aims to provide guidance on the early management of pelvic injuries and the use of these devices.
