I just wanted to touch base and let you know I had a serious first aid Incident at my work last week. A worker amputated his thumb which was found laying on the ground. He was using a skill saw to cut wedges from a piece of 2×4 that was not long enough to hold onto and you can figure out the rest.
I want to thank you for your thorough training! Exactly as you said, everything came back to me with the treatment and management of the severed part. Vitals were all normal… surprising, although he was a little clammy so paramedics came within 8 minutes after calling. The worker has since had surgery where his thumb was successfully reattached and is expected to make a full recovery. Your voice and face were in my head the entire time, thanks for being a great teacher!
Regards your grateful student,
