The British Burns Association will be hosting a pre-hospital education day on the management of burns on 22nd February 2018. The morning will be at a training venue at Redhill (near Gatwick) with the afternoon sessions in London (venue tbc).
The event is aimed at those who work in pre-hospital emergency care and will be multi-disciplinary, in order to share current best practices.
The scenarios will cover not only burn / chemical injuries, but also the toxicological patient who self presents to the ED before the first ambulances arrive from the scene of incident or where patients scatter to many hospitals in larger urban areas.
The scenarios will cover a number of topic areas such as:
- Initial Assessment and Management – thermal and chemical injury.
- Safety aspects of working in an emergency scenario in the first 10 minutes before a response team arrives
- Multiple Casualties / Mass Casualties – being first on scene to a major incident
- Smoke Inhalation Injury, Airway Management – difficult airway
- Burn Wound Management – best evidence based approach
- Electrical Injury, such as from electric vehicles
- Chemical Burns – the gap between industry and healthcare
- Paediatric and elderly Burn Injuries – in rural communities
- Stabilization – Transfer and Transport – Pain management and Fluid Resuscitation
