    As far as I am concerned I only need to know that a break in the pelvis can accumulate three liters of blood and as such is the only time ill be using MAST. Also, the hip is the femur, not the pelvis.

    No. The thigh is the femur. The hip is the pelvis.

    The hip is the joint between the Femur and the Pelvis, trust me on that. Ill have you know I'm an EMT and they had us practice the hell out of hip fractures.

    Yes, the hip joint is the join between the pelvis' acetabulum and the femur's head. However, the hip:

    In adults, three of the bones of the pelvis have fused into the hip bone which forms part of the hip region.
