Objectives
  1. Conduct a Rapid Trauma Assessment, including FAST and EFAST, focused abdominal sonogram for trauma and ultrasound assessment of trauma.
  2. Analyze physiological presentations and clinical signs indicative of specific trauma diagnoses.
  3. Distinguish key palliative interventions in the stabilization and projected continuum of care for selected pediatric and adult traumatic injuries.
  4. Plan for trauma specific issues in airway management and pulmonary pathophysiology.
  5. Assess to determine the most appropriate critical-care stabilization, ongoing care, and transport for a neurological trauma patient.
  6. Apply new insights related to the anatomy and physiology of the cardiac system to trauma care.
  7. Evaluate physiological presentations and clinical signs indicative of specific trauma diagnoses.
  8. Integrate knowledge, skills and abilities to enhance the clinical practice of providers caring for the multi-system trauma patient.
  9. Plan appropriate clinical interventions for common clinical problems encountered in the management of the complex, multi-system trauma patient.
  10. Choose best responses to patients in crisis using trauma resuscitation algorithms.
  11. Determine interventions based upon current research and updates in clinical practice that supersede curriculums.
  12. Demonstrate critical thinking skills necessary to successfully complete the TCRN examination.
