Hemos and Pneumos and Tamponades Oh My!

Yes, I have a bizarre and possibly unhealthy love of all things trauma. So needless to say, when I could finally take ITLS (International Trauma Life Support) a few weeks back, I was quiet the happy camper. The material itself is an intensified version of all the trauma I learned in EMT class, but having taken that over four years ago, it was really nice to have it again. Personally, I would have loved to have more time for the course, but I understand the need to get as much in as fast as possible (aaaah budgets).

Additionally, my EMS response area has very little regular trauma, so being able to do several rapid trauma assessments with the seasoned guys was really nice. I do have to say I enjoy assessment quiet a bit, though I know I need to get my routine down better. Practice is again rearing its head and yelling at me to do more of it.
