Course Title: 1101 Emergency Medicine and Traumatology

Course Description

Clinical pictures from the field of emergency medicine with possibly traumatic injuries repeatedly confront medical personnel with the challenge of time-critical care of potentially life-threatening conditions. This makes structured and guideline-based therapy all the more essential in order to prevent delays in the initiation of treatment and permanent damage to the patient. To ensure adequate care, not only medical expertise is necessary, but also knowledge of the prevailing care system is indispensable. For this reason, the German rescue service is presented in its conception and its organizational structures. The aim of this module is on the one hand to convey the theoretical concept of basic resuscitation and advanced life support according to GRC/ERC as well as pediatric resuscitation. On the other hand, selected clinical pictures from the field of emergency medicine and traumatology are presented and corresponding guideline-based treatments are introduced
