About the Course

This module explores the stepwise approach to circulatory assessment, haemorrhage control, the utility of haemostatic dressings and the process of intra-osseous access. We examine the assessment of a patients vascular status as part of this assessment in trauma and also the anatomy involved in IO access. We also examine the five 'rights' of intra-osseous access to ensure the tip of the needle is in the medullary canal.
