This course is intended to present the student with a comprehensive insight into traumatic injury. Pathophysiology, assessment, and management of trauma to include blunt, penetrating, soft-tissue, burn, musculoskeletal, head, face, neck, spinal, thoracic, and abdominal trauma as well as hemorrhage and shock will be analyzed. Types and phases of shock will be explored to provide the student assessment knowledge for the treatment of various shock conditions. Epidemiology of trauma will be discussed as well as the Arkansas Trauma System. The course will culminate with the National Association of Emergency Technicians (NAEMT) Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS). PHTLS is designed to refine the student's trauma knowledge and critical thinking skills through lecture, practical applications, and case based management scenarios.
