Shotgun Wounds and Trauma!

When: Current Times

Where: Santa Barbara, CA


Situation:

Healthy/active 32 year-old male is shot at close range (five feet) in the chest somewhere in city, person has no medical problems and is not allergic to any medication. No excessive drinking, no smoking, etc. Fast access to ambulance (7 min response time) and hospital. Shotgun is double barrel, the length of just about any you've seen in a western, atypical one, nothing fancy. Or a rifle, I need the guy to live and be able to eventually get mobile.

Questions:

1.- What kind of wounds would the person receive?

2.- Medical treatment? Surgery, etc.

3.- Survival rate.

4.- Long term treatment?

5.- Aprox time of recovery?
