|Understanding Concept of Kinematics and Injury Pattern Recognition in Trauma|
28 May 2021
Trauma cause substantial mortality, morbidity, and expenses worldwide. Kinematics is the study of forces and moving objects. Certain types of injuries are more likely to result from specific types of blunt or penetrating trauma mechanism. Understanding how injuries arise and the mechanism of injury allows us to appreciate the resulting injury patterns. This helps to expedite important diagnoses and focus on appropriate management. With the pressure of time to get the patient to the definitive surgical interventions, how does the trauma team use injury pattern recognition to aid in the assessment of the victim?
Speaker: Dr Jerry Goo (KTPH).
|Multi-systems Trauma: Making Sense of Chaos|
18 February 2021
Trauma care is never a solo effort. It is a team effort that involves a wide range of pre-hospital, medical, nursing, and allied health care providers. Most trauma patients will also need the involvement of their families and community groups to aid them in their journey to recovery. In multi-system trauma, there are many emergent and urgent interventions that are required to save the life of the patient. To add to this challenge, there is the concept of the “Golden Hour” whereby all these interventions need to be instituted, to give the patient the best recovery chance. What can be done if there are multiple trauma victims or in a mass casualty situation? With many competing interventions, the pressure of time, the co-ordination of all the involved personnel, how do we make sense of the “chaos” to save patients? Trauma care is complex but rewarding. What are the key considerations and how do we manage this “chaos”?
Speaker: Adj Asst Prof Teo Li-Tserng (TTSH).
