Medical - Trauma Management I

Trauma Management I is a course designed for both the medical novice and those wishing to refresh and/or expand their knowledge and practice in this arena. The material is directed at acquainting the practitioner with life-saving and stabilizing treatments for traumatic injuries sustained via force-on-force encounters, range or hunting accidents, motor vehicle collisions, wilderness missteps, domestic/household catastrophic injuries, and others. Upon completion of this course the participant should expect to have the foundations for proficiency in the following:

Topics covered include:

  • Crisis mindset and leadership mentalities.
  • Priorities of life-saving treatments.
  • Treatment of penetrating wounds, such as those caused by firearm projectiles, blades, arrows, shrapnel, etc., to extremities, torso, head, and conjoining regions of the body.
  • Treatment and positioning of the unconscious person.
  • Basic airway management
  • Management of multiple injured persons, such as in the aftermath of active shooter incidents, multi-vehicle collisions, or natural disasters.
  • Recommended equipment for immediate aid in such incidents.

Course style is highly interactive in a combined didactic and scenario-based medium, and will require student hands-on participation throughout in order to better train motor skills pertinent to medical aid.

Note: All aspects of this course are drawn from current national and military standards in pre-hospital care and treatment, and include current practice as set forth by the American College of Surgeons, the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care, and the Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support Executive Council.
