It is recorded that up to 80% of crush injury patients die due to severe head injuries or asphyxiation.Of the 20% that reach hospital, 10% make an uneventful recovery. The other 10% go into crush syndrome. Our whole focus has to be centered on tackling this 10%, which has severe and extensive metabolic disturbances. Casualties deteriorate only after being rescued out of the debris of collapse or entrapment absolutely imperative that an assessment is made prior to beginning any extrication activities!
