Trauma Medical Care

Trauma Medical Care/System Collapse Medicine

This class will teach valuable skills, preparing students to provide trauma care in a hostile or austere environment – when traditional medical care may be delayed by hours, days, or longer because of an active killer event, hostage situation, bombing, terrorist scenario or long-term collapse of the medical system. Learn hands-on skills for self-care in case you’re on our own, and buddy-care, which can buy time and save your life or the lives of others. Learn to assess and treat gunshot, stab, and sucking-chest wounds, and blast injuries as well as extremity or junctional hemorrhage, tension pneumothorax and airway obstruction. As part of the class, students will receive a trauma kit and suggestions for other supplies that could be easily obtained and kept on-hand. $100 (3.5 hrs) includes trauma kit
