What are your opinions on prehospital amputations?

I haven't read too much on pre-hospital amputations to have a valid opinion. I don't have as much exposure to that.

I'm of the opinion that if it's necessary, then it's necessary.

Initially I'm thinking of the unsanitary environment, but hey, if it needs to come off...

Besides I'm sure antibiotics are a norm for amputations anyway?

I'm guessing it'll be in an emergency situation. And that these patients will be rushed to a hospital where they'll be started on empiric therapy.

Oh, it's broad spectrum coverage when you don't know exactly what the person is infected with.
You give the antibiotics that cover a variety of bugs.
