The first moulage on the Internet!: In this moulage you are an emergency room doctor and must assess and adequately treat an injured patient. You have an assistant to help you, but they can be of variable help, as in real life. Remember the basic principles of trauma resuscitation and you won't go far wrong.
Having finished with the last patient, you head up to the helipad to escape from the ER for a while. Things never go as planned however and 5 minutes later you are on a motorway 15 miles away. This is a prehospital scenario, but the principles of trauma management still hold, perhaps more so. You have an experienced paramedic to help you, and all the kit you might need.
Suddenly and inexplicably transferred to the spinal service, you have to assess and evaluate six patients with potential cervical spine injuries.
Transferred back to the ER after generating too much work for the hospital's lawyers on the spinal service, you have to manage a child injured in a motor vehicle accident. The child's parameters and response to your treatment will change with each run through - and you'll get a full appraisal of your performance at the end of the moulage.
The Neurotrauma Moulage demonstrates the principles behind the care of the head injured patient. Using a mathematical model to approximate brain neurophysiology it is able to simulate a wide range of conditions that affect brain injury management, both in hte emergency room and on intensive care
Multiple short scenarios where you, as team leader, have to tread the path of the enlightened trauma doc.
