SPINAL CORD INJURY: EMERGENCY ROOM AND EARLY DAYS OF HOSPITALIZATION
Whether caused by a gunshot, a fall from a balcony, a car or motorcycle accident, or a dive into a shallow pool of water a spinal cord injury requires immediate emergency medical assistance. Care must be taken at the scene of the accident to preserve the integrity of the spinal cord. This means that the injured person should be moved only by a professional who is trained in the proper protocol. Stabilizing the neck and transferring the patient onto a backboard – a flat board or stretcher-are usually the first steps taken by the emergency medical technicians. The backboard is placed securely into an emergency vehicle, and a swift journey to a trauma center or hospital follows. Sometimes helicopters do the transporting. On reaching the hospital, the injured person is rapidly transferred to the Emergency Room (ER). Time is of the essence.
Franklin remembers bits and pieces of his trip to the hospital, emergency treatment efforts, and the fears and feelings swirling through his mind. At this point, injured people often have an awareness of their surroundings but no real understanding of what has actually happened. You may be thinking, “What’s going on? What’s wrong with me? Where’s my family?” Questions may float through your mind but you maybe too stunned to ask. Events seem beyond you. You feel as if you’ve been transported into someone else’s life. There is pain. There is no pain. Your headache is like no other you’ve experienced. Time whizzes by. Time is in slow motion.
If you remember the trip to the hospital, you may recall the board on which you arrived and the doctors and nurses examining you. You may remember chaos in the ER, and the sudden appearance of family members and how they reacted, whether with tears or with stiff upper lips. After a quick visit, your family was probably escorted to the waiting room, and you were on your own again with medical staff.
