Hi all-- I have so many, I worked in ER as a Nurse Tech (back in the days when that was allowed) 1967, actually. 1.) We got this gentleman in from a service station in small town Ks. somewhere. He had been working on a tire, to inflate it, and it blew up in his face, the rim slicing his face in two. He was awake, moaning, bleeding severely from this huge facial wound. They had him on his stomach on the gurney, and this I won't forget. They rolled him over, to better assess things, and the face just flopped over to the side. Now, they tell me to go up top and keep suctioning and keep the airway protected!!!. I mean salivary glands all exposed, teeth maxilla, lost one eye,I was never so scared in my life, feeling this was a task for someone more experienced and trained. But, I manged it ok until they rushed him to surgery. Believe me, things were much more primitive 39 years ago than they are today! Whew. 2) the second most memorable one was an 18 year old kid, who was working the highway project for his dad's construction company for his summer job, before starting college. He was sitting atop one of the metal beams, that they use a huge pneumatic press to push into the ground, to support the highway structure. Anyway, he slipped, and the pile driver came down between his legs. They applied MAST trousers in the field, and everybody did what they could but he just bled to death. So young and so very sad. His father later killed himself.
