Pediatric Trauma: When Bad Things Happen to Tots and Teens

Location:
Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital 911 Sunset Dr. Hollister, CA 95023 Room: Great Room in the Support Services Building

Course Description: “En route, Code 3. On board we have a 3 year-old male involved in a car vs. pedestrian…”. That alone is enough to elevate your heart rate and affect your emotions. Managing pediatric trauma is challenging and often triggers a bit of the “fear factor” in many hospital and EMS medical providers.

One of the ways to improve medical care and diminish distress is with education. Learn the anatomical and physiologic differences of the pediatric patient versus an adult. Learn to identify shock and be able to discuss the medical management of the pediatric population. Finally, be able to identify the psychosocial needs of the pediatric patient by understanding their developmental stages.

Please join us for a 3-hour lecture and demonstration that will enhance the care of pediatric trauma patients. Interactive case studies will be utilized throughout the lecture. Start disbanding those internal fears today.

Instructor:
Suz Roehl, RN - Critical Care Flight Nurse with CALIFORNIA Shock Trauma Air Rescue (CALSTAR).

Orthopedic Trauma: No “Bones” About It

Location:
Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center Auditorium 1010 Murray Avenue San Luis Obispo, CA 93405

Course Description: Orthopedic Trauma, Not Humerus When you hear of a victim that was involved in a high-speed motor vehicle accident, one can bet there were some broken bones involved. If enough bones or specific bones are broken, a hemorrhage can follow. In fact, a hemorrhage could cost them their life. It is our job to understand the mechanisms involved, how they will present, and get down to the “bones” on how to management these orthopedic injuries. This knowledge is critical—from the moment a person sustains these injuries to the sequel of complications that can arise further down the road. Some of these late complications include infection, compartment syndrome and fatty emboli.

Join us for a 2-hour discussion on orthopedic trauma, its presentation, and management.

TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY AND CEREBRAL VASCULAR INJURY

Location:
Regional Medical Center 225 N. Jackson Ave. San Jose, CA 95116 Douglas Conference Room

Course Description: Using Your Mind to Save Their Brain

The primary cause of an injury to the brain may be from blunt force trauma, such as a vehicle accident or from an aneurysm that has ruptured. This patient can present with a mild, altered level of consciousness to posturing with a tonic-clonic seizure. Each type of injury is similar, however, unique in its management. What we do from that moment forward CAN, and often WILL, make a difference to that brain for that person.

Please join us for an in-depth look at the pathophysiology of the injured brain. Learn how the body and brain attempt to adapt to the assault. The primary injury has occurred, and your focus will be on preventing the secondary brain injury that follows. Each of us who will be caring for that victim has a part in that patient’s potential outcome.

Suz Roehl, RN - Critical Care Flight Nurse with CALIFORNIA Shock Trauma Air Rescue (CALSTAR). Suz has 28 years of critical care and emergency nursing in a diverse background of Pediatric ICU, Burn ICU, CV ICU, Level 1 Trauma ED, Flight Nursing, and Clinical Nursing Educator for ICU and ED.
