A six-part learning series with Paul Aldridge on critical nursing of the trauma patient.

Trauma patients commonly present to us as emergencies. The nature of their injuries dictates prompt triage, stabilisation and then often surgical intervention.

This learning series is suitable for all veterinary nurses and aims to outline a systematic approach; from initial assessment of major body systems at triage, to stabilisation of dyspnoea and ‘shock’, through to the specific management of certain presentations once stable.
