#2358 Emergency Medicine - Preventing Injuries (Run time 26 min.) DVD $89.95

This program from The Doctor Is In covers the most common areas of danger and makes some very basic points about common sense and risk-taking. Automobile accidents are the principal cause of injury, and wearing seatbelts would prevent a large percentage of deaths; bicycle accidents cause 1,300 deaths annually, most of which could be prevented if the rider were wearing a helmet. The program divides injury prevention into five major categories: wearing seatbelts, using safe toys, care in sports on land and in the water, and winter hazards. It points out that alcohol doesn't mix with boats any more than with cars; discusses safety in helmets and flotation devices; covers the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of hypothermia and the dangers of accidental poisoning in children and adults; and offers a reminder that, in the case of children, no precaution beats supervision. A Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center production. (26 minutes)

Fatalities are the most tragic outcome of auto accidents, but in societal terms, injuries involving irreversible brain damage may exact a higher toll. In this program, a team of the auto industry's leading researchers reconstruct an actual side-impact crash to explore what happens to the human brain in a collision. Specialized crash-test dummies, high-speed X-ray cameras, and computer simulations are used to capture crucial information. The dangers of four-wheel drive vehicles, particularly SUVs, are also examined as part of ongoing initiatives to improve design safety. (27 minutes)


#39413 Emergency Medicine - Emergency 9-1-1 (Run time min.) DVD $89.95

About 51,000 Americans are hospitalized annually for burns; they face countless operations, grueling physical therapy, and emotional trauma. Filmed at the University of California San Diego Regional Burn Center, this program takes an in-depth look at actual treatment of contact and electrical burn patients. Specialists demonstrate how to assess burn percentage and severity; induce a coma-like state with drugs called paralytics to ease internal swelling; and prevent kidney failure from massive dehydration. UCSD Burn Center director Dr. John Hansbrough discusses skin grafts, pressure garments, and the use of TransCyte, a renewable skin replacement he developed which the body will not reject. Viewer discretion is advised. Not available in French-speaking Canada. A Discovery Channel Production. (51 minutes)


#30339 Emergency Medicine - The Critical Hour (Run time 51 min.) DVD $129.95

Along with a computer-animated review of the physiology of uncompensated shock, Drs. Thomas Scalea, the Trauma Unit Director, and Norman McSwain, Tulane University's Chief Trauma Surgeon, discuss the science behind the "golden hour." Viewer discretion is advised.

In interviews with a trauma surgeon and an emergency room physician, it describes the difference between a Level One trauma center and an emergency room. (19 minutes)

This program explores the conditions under which a patient should seek emergency care-chest or upper abdominal pain, difficulty in breathing, dizziness, weakness or sudden change in vision, severe vomiting-and the care typically available in community hospital emergency rooms. For minor conditions, a trauma center may be the last place to come for treatment, putting the patient at the end of a long line of more seriously injured people; but if an injury or illness is deemed serious and requiring immediate care, the patient should not hesitate to go to the emergency room. (19 minutes)
