Dislocated Shoulder (Teaching Video)

Great review of shoulder reduction, techniques and sedation. 

Learning points:

  • Most techniques will work 80% of the time (Best results tailor the technique to the patient)
  • Kocker’s shouldn’t be used in # greater tuberosity
  • Cunningham technique looks interesting (I’m going to give this a go)
  • Traction is the what causes the most pain. Reduce the traction & Reduce the sedation required
