The reasons can be found in the training of Hong Kong paramedics. Their training is roughly comparable to the EMT-Intermediate level in the US.

It could mean any number of things. First and foremost, serious trauma requires immediate surgery, and quite often surgeons with different specialties. A single patient might need a thoracic surgeon, a neurosurgeon and an orthopedic surgeon (they might need more than that but you get the idea). In addition to the surgeons, they'll also need a surgical team,...

The part of the question about passive euthanasia is an ethical question, which in my opinion does not fit for Health.SE. From INJURY SEVERITY SCORING: a Hepatic avulsion, which is given with vein has ruptured from vena cava, has an ABBREVIATED INJURY SCALE of 6 which would count as unsurvivable. Problems with the surgical treatment are in ...

If your tooth gets knocked out, the nerves, blood vessels and supporting tissues are damaged and can’t be repaired. So the avulsed teeth (displacement of a tooth from its socket) will need a root canal. However, the bone will reattach to the tooth's root once it’s restored into place.

TL;DR: Yes, but it's extremely rare and I could only find one example. You asked: Has there ever been a medically verified case of someone having a big part of their body paralyzed for years, due to a car accident or similar event, who eventually recovered the normal functioning of their paralyzed body part? It's very rare but I did find one example: The ...

Yes and no. These are your skin's layers and components. When being hit by something, everything you see gets either damaged or destroyed. Bruising is caused by the blood that escapes the broken capillaries. In a "recurring blunt force trauma" those capillaries are not allowed to heal. Same thing happens to everything you see above including the sensory ...

This all falls to a matter of degree - most importantly mechanism of injury. I'll explain the physics in allegorical terms first and then explain as it relates to medicine. The mechanism refers to the amount of force experienced in the injury process which allows us to predict injury patterns. For example: A motor vehicle collision at highway speed has a ...
