In what  situations do you think ER thoracotomy is  futile??




1.    Obviously dead patient
2.    Most cases of blunt trauma in a non trauma center  where there is no 
protocol
3.    Most cases of extrathoracic trauma and cardiac  arrest
4.    Broad sine wave cardiac rhythm
5.     Non survival CNS injury
6.    Non presence of a surgeon knowledgable in knowing  technique
