Join this meeting to hear from three expert speakers who will discuss aspects of trauma in relation to critical care medicine. The first speaker will discuss critical care transfers of the trauma patient. This is invaluable to any members of the trauma team or those who may be involved in critical care trauma transfers as well as those interested in PHEM. The second speaker will be discussing the management of the trauma patient on the critical care unit, including initial resuscitation and ongoing management. The final speaker will highlight important factors relating to trauma in the older population, including under-triage, rib fractures and spinal injuries.

The aim of this webinar is to teach students, doctors and other healthcare professionals about trauma in Critical Care. We hope that attendees will gain an understanding of a trauma patient’s journey through Critical Care. With three talks covering critical care transfer of the trauma patient, resuscitation of the critically unwell trauma patient and management of the trauma patient on the critical care unit, with special focus on the geriatric patient.
