This high energy program presents the important steps in identifying and managing critical trauma patients. Whether the situation is a man-made event (bus crash), natural disaster, or active threat situation the components of this program will allow streamlined interventions to save lives.
The course of instruction is based on the M.A.R.C.H assessment algorithm, which is a well-defined, structured process to locate and intervene with the injuries most likely to be fatal if overlooked or not treated in a timely manner.
Utilizing the most up to date Trauma Casualty Care (TCCC) and Tactical Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines, the participants will engage in both didactic learning and multiple skill stations to properly apply the right interventions at the right time.
Bill is a frequent educator at regional, national and international conferences.
