This practical two-day course at the well-resourced and modern anatomy department of Brighton Medical School teaches the strategies and skills needed to manage severely injured patients with life-threatening musculoskeletal injuries, often in challenging and time-critical circumstances.
Using unembalmed cadavers, you will practice a range of techniques with an emphasis on rapid control of exsanguinating junctional haemorrhage and resuscitation. Techniques include the use of external fixators, multiple limb fasciotomy, pelvic packing, rib plating and dealing with ballistic and blast injuries.
Led by an experienced faculty, by the end of this course will be able to more confidently perform damage control or early appropriate care in those with major life and limb threatening injuries.
