Day One - Morning
With only half of the medics having arrived, the team decided to proceed with introductions and some anatomy and trauma care overview. Some participants also assembled trauma kits for later in the week, while others finalized presentations or prepared models and equipment.
The training commenced with a brief introduction, followed by a refresher course on basic anatomy.
Next, our Trauma Specialist and ER Physician discussed the basics of trauma and first responder care, highlighting issues relevant to medics working in combat and other hazardous situations.
