- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) management in the remote setting: Prehospital management of TBI with updated 2016 and 2017 literary references. In this module, we look at the use of plasma, ketamine and hypertonic saline (HTS) as used in the austere environment.
- Adult and Pediatric Field Pain Management: This module focuses on providing a multi-modal pain management approach, using novel methods and maximizing traditional methods to manage the severely injured casualty in the austere environment. Including the proper and safe usage of ketamine and fentanyl by the medical provider.
- Shock, Fluids and Field Whole Blood Transfusions /Remote Damage Control Resuscitation (RDCR): In addition to reviewing the appropriate usage of crystalloids and synthetic and natural colloids in the prehospital environment, this module goes into the details of the return of field whole blood transfusions (remote damage control resuscitation) and the utility of such a lifesaving intervention for a trauma casualty in impending shock in the austere environment.
