Description: Why isn’t the systemic effect of crushing your hand the same as crushing your leg? What happens that makes crush injuries distinctive from other trauma injuries? In this session, we will go over crush injuries from start to finish. What happens at the moment a heavy weight hits the body and what do we need to do before that weight comes off. We will review some common medications in EMS that we need to have available in order to improve your patient’s outcome and why they should be given.


  • Differentiate between Crush Injury and Crush Syndrome.
  • List at least 2 complications that occur with Crush Syndrome
  • Understand the interventions performed when treating a Crush Syndrome patient and how they work.
  • List the most common areas of the body that are more susceptible to creating Crush Syndrome.
