In part 2 Doc Chung discusses ventilator issues, wound care and escharotomy, special circumstances including chemical, electric and steam injuries.  NOTE: a lot of information relevant to our mission such as a maritime response, where we get to the patient 24-48 hours after injury, where there is no real guidance, is discussed and revised.

In light of last week's Moody jump mission in the Atlantic, we are doing a more in-depth discussion on burns. Burns are one of the top three injuries that teams perform maritime rescue for.  Doc Chung also served as a telecon consultant for our ROC Doc.

In Part 1 of 2 with Doc (LTC) Chung, he reviews pain control, fluids and airway management. Doc keeps his comments focused on our gear and meds and makes it specific to PJ capes. Enjoy a great talk.
