CRIT5007: Clinical Retrieval Medicine

This unit follows on from CRIT5006 and aims to equip students to practice in this exciting field of retrieval medicine. The unit of study has three major areas: prehospital trauma care; critical care transport; and special patient groups (obstetric, neonatal and paediatric, bariatric, mechanical cardiorespiratory support). On successful completion of this unit students will be able to analyse and critique: appropriate prehospital trauma care; critical care issues specific to different transport modes; and issues regarding special groups that are increasingly encountered in retrieval medicine. Students will also gain an understanding of equipment and monitoring in retrieval medicine.
