Is a completely torn pec major tendon from bone a serious injury is it like a rotator cuff tear ?

Yes: Pec major tendon tears are much less common than rot cuff tears and are usually related to an eccentric contraction while bench pressing. Tears in the muscle belly can be treated non-operatively. Tears off the humerus leave a deformity in the axillary fold( near the armpit) and almost always require surgical fixation of the tendon back to the humerus. Best of Luck!

How long after an injury could a bone be reset?

How long after an injury could a bone be reset?

Varies: After a week or so, the fracture gets sticky and is more difficult to set. If you are in doubt, make sure you see an orthopedist and get needed care before you have to make this decision. If there is drift and a re-set is necessary, i would think a couple of weeks out is getting to the limit. I defer to our orthopedic colleagues on health tap for a more expert answer.

When breaking a bone or other serious injury, should you keep the victim conscious or let him or her pass out?

When breaking a bone or other serious injury, should you keep the victim conscious or let him or her pass out?

It's not your choice: If they're going to pass out, you can't prevent it. What you want to do though, is if you think they're going to pass out make sure they don't fall and hurt themselves. Help them gently to the ground. Our 1st instinct when someone is going down is to try to help them back up or to sit them up. Don't do that. The reason we pass out is so our head goes down to get more blood to our brain.
