Dxhow: Plain film only

Exam: Extreme swelling of neck, LOC, respiratory arrest unstable vitals, intubated by field medic.

No MeSH data available.


Lateral cervical spine, developed manually in dip tanks. Demonstrates dislocation of C1 and C2 (note how well the ondontoid is seen since it is not obscured by C1). Also note the extreme soft tissue swelling anterior to the cervical spine, made further evident by the dispalcement of the ET and NG tubes.
