The goal of this program is to improve the management of traumatic injuries. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. List the components and roles of a trauma team.
2. Assess data on the efficacy of trauma teams in reducing mortality.
3. Consider training and use of nonsurgeons as trauma team leaders.
4. Choose an optimal ratio of plasma to platelets to packed red blood cells for resuscitation of trauma patients.
5. Identify patients requiring massive transfusions through the use of rapid thromboelastography.
