TRAUMA Grand Rounds: Damage Control – Trauma Resuscitation
November 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PSTFree
Presented By: Krista L Kaups MD, MSc, FACS
Damage control resuscitation is an essential part of contemporary management of injured patients. The “more is better” approach for blood pressure and fluid management has significant detrimental effects. Selecting optimal quantities and types of fluid and blood products for resuscitation, recognizing patients for whom permissive hypotension is appropriate and choosing suitable endpoints of resuscitation are important components of this approach.
- Review the concepts of damage control as it applies to trauma resuscitation.
- Discuss appropriate fluid and blood product choices for management of the severely injured trauma patient.
- Consider the utility and reliability of available endpoints of resuscitation.
