Abdominal Eviscerations

Open abdominal wound treated with moist gauze dressing and direct pressure to stop bleeding. Then, if protocols indicate, cover moist gauze with an occlusive dressing (this can be the plastic that the trauma pad came in, plastic wrap, you might need to be creative depending on the size of the evisceration).
