METC med tech student assists car crash victims
May 21, 2019
Airman 1st Class Colten Connelly simulates a c-spine stabilization on a “patient” during emergency medical technician training in the Aerospace Service Medical Apprentice program at the Medical Education and Training Campus. The technique is the same one he administered to a vehicle accident victim. The purpose of this skill is to prevent further injury to patients involved in a trauma. When this skill is completed appropriately, the patient is unable to move and will stay on the backboard until a physician evaluates them for spinal injuries.
