EMTP 123 Trauma Emergencies (4)
Lec-72, field trips
Credit, Degree Applicable
Pathophysiology, assessment and management of trauma emergencies in the field. Basic and advanced management principles and continuum of trauma care. Focus on prehospital and definitive management of patients with shock as the result of traumatic injury.
Offered Fall semesters
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Integrate assessment findings with principles of epidemiology and pathophysiology to formulate a field impression and implement a treatment plan for an acutely injured patient.
- Outcome 2: Analyze injury patterns based upon epidemiology mechanism of injury, and patient risk factors.
- Outcome 3: Predict injury severity based upon clinical examination findings, mechanism of injury and organ system affected.
- Outcome 4: Perform a rapid trauma assessment on a simulated critical trauma patient and a focused history and physical examination on a simulated stable trauma patient consistent with the current national standards for paramedics.
- Outcome 5: Demonstrate proper basic and advanced life support management of critical and stable trauma patients within the scope of practice of a paramedic.
- Outcome 6: Apply knowledge of pathophysiology of hemorrhagic shock to simulated patient scenarios and the clinical condition of the patient.
- Outcome 7: Demonstrate foundational knowledge of the pathophysiology, differential clinical findings and treatment guidelines of various internal and external injuries to the head, face, neck, chest, abdomen, back and extremities
