Medics- how would you treat? (VERY GRAPHIC)

Pack the mouth, lay on stomach with face down and legs elevated, and TWD!!!!
 
well from what i saw in the video he wasn't bleeding too badly. i would just dress the wound and transport. if he was bleeding profusely than i would trendelenberg him.
 
ehh I never feel bad seeing these guys get fucked up by the bull they are having oh so much fun stabbing to death. I cheer for the bulls everytime. But thats just me.
 
If it messed with his airway I'd intubate or do a surgical airway. Otherwise I'd apply pressure, imobilize and transport with the backboard tilted with a suction cath in his mouth if needed. Also I'd laugh... just a little

Shoot, I think the bull took care of the crich for ya!
 
It sure looked like the bull's horn penetrated his throat then came out his mouth. I would RSI (give meds to make him "go night night") & intubate the Pt to protect the airway. Control the bleeding with gauze, & definetely spinal package this dude.

A Maxillofacial / Oral trauma


B Surgical Airway site


Based on the location and amount of "A" I bet I'd be confirming the location of "B" really quickly... just a guess. It's possible that the damage may still allow oraltracheal intubation....


Either way he'll need airway control and imobilization. Pretty cool really.

Spoken like a true career paramedic. :cool:


Personally, his choice of hobbies sucks, and i would give him a $100 off coupon to walmart for a casket and would stop the ambulance there to drop him off... :D


just kidding...
 
Id let him get infected and die a slow painfulk death. How you think the bull feels? He got what was coming to him.
 
Does not look like he is doing too well:


MADRID -- A Madrid hospital says Spanish bullfighter Julio Aparicio has returned to intensive care and is fighting an infection after a horrific goring in the throat by a bull.


Aparicio had left the unit and was recovering well on Monday following surgery to reconstruct his throat, mouth and palate, but outbreak of an infection forced a return to the unit where doctors placed him on mechanically assisted breathing,


In a statement released Saturday the hospital says Aparicio is now breathing normally and it describes his condition as "grave" but stable.


The matador slipped in a bullring, fell to the ground and a 1,168 pound (530-kilogram) bull drove his right horn through Aparicio's throat and out his mouth.
 
paybacks are a bitch,it sucks it happens but what about the bull
 
c-spine, airway, bleeding control, high flow O2, vitals monitoring, back board, get his ass to the hospital. ( I;m only a Certified First Responder) EMT will be done after i finish LpN School.
 
One round of JHP .40 S&W should do the trick :cool: and as for the bull i would patch him up and feed him some nice green hay for doing a good job
 
I would apply a SpongeBob Band-Aid to the tip of the horn. Most likely damaged by the bull fighters clenched teeth. Pat the nice bull on the head and send him on his way.
 
Rapid Response , Rapid Treatment and Rapid Transport. Did I forget 2 14's open wide one in each arm.
 
Patch it up and tell him A.B.C. (Ambulance Be Coming)
