Triaging Trauma

08 Nov 2024
Vet Tech Theater

Trauma patients are often in need of immediate lifesaving interventions. The ability to rapidly assess and stabilize these animals is imperative in giving them the best chance to survive. We will discuss the pathophysiology of trauma, outline mnemonics used to help with trauma triage,  and review the goals of the primary and secondary survey in trauma. Stabilization and complications will also be examined.

At the end of this lecture the participant should be able to: 

  • Explain how to use the ABCDE mnemonic for the primary survey
  • Examine complications involved with trauma
  • Discuss the goals of the primary and secondary survey and their differences.
