The patient was brought to DESUN Hospital in a most critical condition. Immediately he was tested with Chest X-Ray and subsequently went through a Whole Body CT Scan. The tests revealed multiple rib fractures & Femur bone fracture. Observing his critical condition, the doctors decided to put a chest drain immediately on both sides of the chest. He was then intubated and ventilated.
The accident had made its impact on almost every part of his body. He was suffering from tendon and muscle injury of the right foot along with rib fractures & Femur bonefracture. A medical team, comprising of Specialist Internal Medicine doctors, Cardiothoracic surgeon, Orthopaedic surgeon, Pulmonologist and plastic surgeon reviewed him daily.
The patient was hypotensive, in septic shock & in a hemodynamically unstable condition. This critical condition required proper management and tremendous skill with supporting infrastructure to make the patient stable through protocol-based antibiotic therapy. All these medical efforts made him hemodynamically stable.
