Beyond ATLS – Speciaslised care for the trauma patient

Trauma is a major problem in both the developed and developing nations. In our region we are all too aware of the heavy toll on the community from major trauma. Worldwide there is an increasing development of major trauma centers reflecting the importance of coordinated multi-specialty care. But what are these sub-specialties and what are the current developments? This conference is designed to update the delegate on some of these interventions in our trauma patients and will take you beyond ATLS. For the first time we will include hands on wet-lab skills training in:

Surgical stabilisation of the chest wall, foot and ankle surgery, vascular access and repair and pain control.

This symposium is designed for medical and no-medical staffs that wish to update themselves in the following areas of chest, limb and vascular trauma.

  • preoperative assessment
  • pain management
  • patient selection and operative planning
  • operative techniques
  • post-operative care
  • hands on training cadaveric wet-lab (by invitation)
