Tactical to Practical: Pre-Hospital Care: Tourniquet Use in the Management of Mass Hemorrhage Injuries, General Medical Conditions, & A Review of Concussion Assessment and Management Techniques Utilizing Technology in Athletic Training
The purpose of this presentation is to provide the clinician with current pre-hospital standards of care for severe limb trauma that requires the use of a tourniquet to control mass hemorrhage and provide limb salvage. With the increasing incidence of shootings (e.g. Sandy Hook Elementary School, Columbine High School, etc.) and other mass casualty incidents (e.g. Boston Marathon bombings) in athletic healthcare settings, athletic trainers should be trained and equipped with the current best practices/protocols for managing mass hemorrhage extremity trauma.
With the recent focus on the management of concussions, hospitals, private companies, and individuals are peddling products with the claim that their product is the ultimate breakthrough. The intent of our lecture is to present products that are available and discuss the content, quality, pricing, and evidenced-based research for those products that have been studied.
The last course will provide
clinical information on general medical conditions that occur in both
ethnically diverse and special populations of athletes. Eric Law MD, ATC
and Lacy Knowles DO present information surrounding the best practices
for these athletes based on the current research. Additionally,
participants will receive a reading by the Inter-Association Task Force
for Preventing Sudden Death in Secondary School Athletics Programs.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
Explain and locate resources to assist in evidence based clinical practice as they relate to concussion management using technology.
Implement the presented knowledge on concussion management using technology into their clinical practice.
Identify current best practices to return an athlete back to participation following a concussion using technology as a primary determinant.
Apply knowledge and skills of concussion management using technology.
