Grant, OSU surgeons to join EMS at some trauma scenes



From The Columbus Dispatch, February 18, 2011:


The worker’s arm was hopelessly trapped between the rollers in an industrial machine at the Jet Container Company in Columbus this morning.

Emergency medical workers were unable to free it.

His blood pressure was dropping. The situation was dire, and death was feared.

EMS workers summoned Dr. Doug Paul, a surgeon and trauma medical director at Grant Medical Center.

He arrived at the workplace at 2050 S. High St. and performed an emergency amputation.

The worker’s arm could not be saved, but the worker could. He lived.
