EMS - Abdominal and Genital Trauma
Produced by: HealthStream
Abdominal and pelvic injuries in the prehospital environment pose a significant problem for the emergency care professional. The largest cavity in the body, the abdominal cavity can hold a considerable amount of blood (up to 1.5 liters) before it appears distended. Therefore, the potential for life-threatening hemorrhage from trauma to the abdominal organs exists, even with few overt signs of damage. Traumatic injuries to the abdominal organs require surgical intervention. It is important for the EMS professional to understand the anatomy and physiology of the abdominal organs, so that immediate threats to life from injuries will be recognized. This course increases understanding of these injuries and their complications, to better prepare the EMS professional to handle the victim's needs and reduce mortality.
