Day Three Afternoon -- Larry takes charge (awesome fasciotomy and amputation lessons)

Larry, with help from Loren and Jaime, spent the afternoon teaching the basics of fasciotomies and amputations, and then walked each medic through a simulated procedure using our self-made limb models (sugarcane for bone; diaper for muscle; plastic bags for fascia and skin). The students were incredibly engaged, and each had an opportunity to perform a simulated fasciotomy and amputation on their own model.
