Spent a fantastic morning with the London Ambulance Service Advanced Paramedic Practitioners (APPs).
We discussed Orthopaedic emergencies and how to manage them in the Pre-Hospital environment. Also talked about the definitive management of open fractures and pelvic/acetabulum injuries.

I was delighted to give a talk at the recent regional conference about the use of local antibiotic carriers.
Cerement (manufactured by Bonesupport) contains calcium sulphate, hydroxyapatite and antibiotics. It is used as synthetic bone graft but also contains antibiotics. I was able to talk about our experience with in when managing complex trauma cases.
Thanks go to Gemma at Bonesupport for hosting and to, my friend, Alex for chairing the meeting.
