Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Cardiac tamponade is a life-threatening and time-critical emergency that requires early recognition and prompt management often alongside other resuscitation considerations. The use of ultrasound in the primary survey greatly assists in the early diagnosis allowing preparations for early definitive management to be made. An unusual case of right ventricular rupture following blunt trauma to the chest from a horse kick is discussed.
