Open Fractures

  • Prioritize ABCs and systematic evaluation of the trauma patient with an open fracture as one third of these patients have multiple injuries
  • Assess neurovascular status and immediately reduce and immobilize if compromised
  • Give appropriate antibiotics as soon as possible
  • Consult orthopedics for operative management as soon as possible
