We learned all about spinal injuries today. Lessons were centered around stabilizing the spine, as well as giving rescue breaths and practicing CPR on an unresponsive patient. This stuff is so interesting. It’s like a science class, but with blood, adrenaline, and ACTUAL consequences if we screw up. My goal is to go this whole course without having a death while a patient is in my care. So far so good, but we haven’t gotten to the life or death situations yet. We’ll have to see how I do with those.
