Fort Worth (Texas) Providers Treat Patient at Motor Vehicle Collision

EMSIA-web-1

A crew from the Fort Worth (Texas) Fire Department performs an extrication of a male patient who was trapped in his vehicle after a motor vehicle collision. The extrication process was extended because the patient’s feet were pinned beneath the seat of the vehicle, so the crew decided to use a bag-valve mask to ventilate him and then perform endotracheal intubation on scene. The patient was extricated successfully and transported by Careflight Air Ambulance to a hospital center.
