Location:

Agenda::

Whether you are paramedic responding to a vehicle accident or a nurse working in the ED or ICU, a rapid, systematic patient assessment is the critical first step in the care of your trauma victim. This entails a rapid primary survey which includes airway, breathing, circulation (with hemorrhage control), all while exposing your patient fully. This is the time that a life threatening injury is immediately treated. Your secondary survey is a rapid head to toe assessment identifying all of the patient’s injuries.

Many obstacles arise that can prevent a proper, and often lifesaving, assessment. Lacking a systematic approach, focused attention of distracting injuries and the speed and efficiency of your exam is critical. Utilizing the understanding of anatomy and physiology, anatomical differences of adults and pediatric and incorporating the understanding of how injuries occur (mechanism of injury) can only enhance your Primary and secondary survey. It can and will make a difference!

Whenever you are preparing to transfer your patient to another facility, the patient and all collected data must be organized and provided to maintain the optimal continuity of care.
