The patient was appropriately treated and involved the use of a tourniquet. THe patient was transported via AirEvac to Grant Medical Center. The Patient underwent surgery and the staff at Grant Medical Center were able to save the patient’s foot. The patient was discharged three days later to a rehabilitation facility.
