Understanding Trauma should be the first medical course that every student takes. This establishes a foundational understanding of the body’s physiology when inflicted with trauma. This video series will take relevant complex biochemistry and physiological processes and explain them in simplified terms that are easy to understand and important to even the most basic care provider. This allows all levels of practitioners to benefit from understanding what is happening to the trauma casualty, and why certain interventions, even as basic as keeping the casualty warm, are so important. This course is highly recommended for all CTOMS students.
