Trauma on the Border 2021

About The Event

Trauma on the Border 2021

Land, Air and Sea - conquering unique trauma challenges

Friday 19th March 2021

The TotB21 conference program will be delivered as a hybrid event on Friday 19th March 2021, allowing attendees the opportunity to attend the conference in person (at Tweed Heads) as well as online attendees to watch live sessions on a dedicated event page on the College website.

This year’s theme is “Trauma: Air, Land and Sea” and as always, our conference will focus on providing the education that paramedics of all levels need; covering student paramedics, on road paramedics, intensive and extended care paramedics, flight and mobile paramedics, paramedic educators and academics, and senior managers.

Presentations for TotB21 will include:

Trauma Resuscitation - Big picture thinking This keynote presentation will explore some of the key concepts, philosophy and challenges relating to prehospital trauma management.

Penetrating Trauma - is this one for real? This talk will analyse the prehospital assessment and management of penetrating trauma including the accuracy of clinical wound examination, the evidence base behind current treatment strategies and the interface between prehospital and in-hospital care.

A Complicated Island Retrieval Managing the many challenges of retrieving an injured patient from a remote indigenous island community when you cannot fly. All cases have their unique challenges but when your patient's weight exceeds the loading limit of the helicopter what are the other options available and what goes into your preparation?

Working Under Pressure Underwater diving is a term that encompasses a wide variety of recreational and commercial groups who use a range of apparatus including SCUBA (self-contained underwater breathing apparatus), fully-contained units (rebreathers), surface-supplied air and freediving. Whether a person is diving recreationally with an interest in marine life, wrecks and reefs, or diving professionally in underwater construction or search and rescue, all divers are subject to a special set of environmental and physiological factors. Diving emergencies present unique challenges to medical professionals, particularly in the pre-hospital environment and it is important that clinicians maintain current knowledge of dive physiology, types of potential dive emergencies and evidence-based treatment protocols.

Dodging curve balls in prehospital care, a walk in the (zoo) park A Zookeeper was pinned against a bollard by a 1200kg elephant. This patient presented as critical with severe injuries to the chest including a tension pneumothorax. Paramedics carried out bilateral needle decompression which not only avoided certain death but led to a full patient recovery. In this presentation we will look at some of the complexities of the pre-hospital setting that can act like “curve balls”, potentially compromising, confusing and distracting us in the field and discuss how to avoid them.
