CRIT5011: Procedures Of Emergency Medicine

Procedures are a common feature of the practice of Emergency Medicine. Many of the same procedures are employed in other Critical Care specialties. Students in this unit of study will master an approach to learning a new procedure by studying the relevant basic science, features of the procedure and associated complications as well as observing the procedure, and practicing it in a simulation workshop. Procedures include: airway, breathing and ventilation, circulation/vascular/CPR, sedation and local anaesthesia, orthopedics, eye and ENT, skin and soft tissue, and abdominal procedures as well as use of ultrasound for procedures. It is important to develop an approach to learning procedures that can be implemented when the need arises in clinical practice. Students will gain practical experience and instruction from senior clinicians during the compulsory simulation workshop.
