My partner and myself were dispatched to a snow mobile accident. We arrived to find the patient sitting in the back seat of a vehicle holding her right leg up. She refused to be moved from there into our ambulance. We escort the vehicle to the hospital to extricate her there. We then discover she has an open tib fib fracture. We get her out and get her into a room at the er. My partner tells me to hold her leg while the doc stops the bleeding and he gets an iv started. About 5 minutes of me holding her leg the dr puts some pressure on it to control the bleeding. I feel crepitus in her leg. I instantly get nauseas dripping with sweat and light headed. I tried to breath through it but i knew that i pass out while holding her leg its bad news for her. I call my partner and as soon as he saw my face he knew instantly i was going down. He got a hold of the leg and i was helped to another room to recover. I was told by the staff there that this is normal for the first time seeing and feeling an injury like this. I was wondering if anyone else has similar stories to share so i dont feel like such a loser lol.
