Bending, lifting, twisting and essentially turning yourself into a pretzel in a car is how we often work at the scene of an MVC. However are we destined to “just deal with it” or are there some adjustments we can do to make moving and extricating patients safer for us?
Join Scott Kier, Kyle David Bates, and Jeremiah Bush as they discuss this topic with our Australian friend and renowned ergonomist Chris Fitzgerald.
The listener will be able to:
- Define ergonomics;
- Appreciate the importance of proper body mechanics;
- Discuss how typical operations at the scene of a motor vehicle crash can increase your chances of injuries;
