Description: Emergency trauma management has evolved over the past decade with positive developments owing to the regionalization of trauma care, improvements in diagnostic imaging, advancing research in the field and increasing emphasis on the importance of teamwork and parallel care in trauma resuscitations. Despite these advances, out-dated practices, trauma dogma and misconceptions in resuscitative management still exist in many clinical environments. Throughout this interactive presentation, the speaker will explore and appraise the evidence for commonly held beliefs and dogma in emergency trauma care.
- Recognize commonly held misconceptions in the care of trauma patients.
- Appraise recent advances and emerging evidence in trauma management and consider the application to your own clinical practice.
