Injury management skills (binders, splints, HFNP, eFast, xray)

Join us to hear about the science behind these and other interventions, and get hands on experience in this interactive workshop

Interventions that will be covered are some of those that can be lifesaving in all types of emergency environments: rural, regional, pre-hospital, during transport and in the major trauma centre

We will discuss the purpose of each of the following and learn to use correctly

  • pelvic binder (purpose and correct placement)
  • the CT6 traction splint
  • eFAST
  • chest and pelvis xrays
  • Quikclot
  • highflow nasal cannulae
  • soft (foam) and philadelphia collars
