Patient Management at VishwaRaj Hospital

At Emergency Room (ER) – 

Patient was brought to Emergency room of VishwaRaj Hospital at 5.30 am in the morning by 108 Ambulance. Patients was stabilized Hemodynamically as he lost massive amount of blood due to ROD PENETRATION & Vessel injury. Later Patient’s Clinical condition was thoroughly evaluated by our TRAUMA TEAM (ER- Medical team, Plastic surgeon, Orthopedician, Anesthetic team, Surgical Registrar )

Medical Dilemma/ Ethical Dilemma

1. Identication of the person (belongs to other state – native of Uttar Pradesh)
2. Medico-legal case
3. Consent for the surgery/ Line of treatment (non- availability of relatives)
4. Limb Salvage / Limb Amputation
5. Team of treating Surgeons (Plastic Surgeon, Orthopedician, Anesthetic team, ER  Drs,Intensive care)

Continuation of Further treatment:
Once plan of treatment was nalized in the best interest of the patient to salvage limb, Doctors didn’t left with an option other than taking consent over the phone to immediately start the treatment (relatives were in UP, 2000+ km away from pune). Patient was taken to Surgery within few hours after stabilizing him hemodynamically, Compatible Blood was arranged including the implants & consumables required for the surgery.
