Managing Critically ill and acutely traumatized patients is what Emergency Medicine is all about. Though this is a small percentage of our patient encounters, it is arguably the most important subset. You need to be well trained in order to be prepared to manage this challenging patient population, and you need to know your role as leader of the patient care team. This module starts by reviewing the members of trauma team, the equipment and resources available, and how to assess the limitations of your facility. You will then go through an extensive series of actual trauma and critical care scenarios, in both adult and pediatric patients, and learn many critical procedures along the way.
