    recently stoped at this accident scene to see if I could be of any assistance. There were two occupants in the vehicle, a woman and her infant child. Even though the damage to the vehicle was impressive the injuries turned out to be relatively minor. Extrication and patient care was provided by the Florence Fire Dept. They did an excellent job. I ended up being strictly an observer until Aircare arrived.

    This is a traumatic glossitis. A tremendous swelling of the tongue after biting it during a seizure.

    This photo is a little difficult to distinguish. What is seen is a large tumor in the oropharynx of a smoker who presented with the complaint of a sore throat.

    This was removed from a patient in Sandusky, OH. The patient did fine. The tick didn't make it.

    This person partied slightly too much and forgot that you're supposed to drink the beverage, not the bottle cap.

    This little one was injured in a house that was intentionally set on fire. A family member held her against her body as they ran from the house but she was still burned on one arm and her scalp. She was a favorite patient of the staff in the burn center and recovered completely.

    This person was pretty sure he had stepped on something the night before he came to the Emergency Room. His wife was pleased to get her sewing needle back and he was glad to be rid of it.

    This was a young man who attempted suicide via bb gun. This exceptionally slow learner shot 4 bb's into his left nostril and one into the right before he figured out that this was extraordinarilly painful but not likely to kill him.
