Hot Topics in Shock Trauma


Aggressive, evidence-based care of the shock trauma patient is essential for sustaining life in the critically ill. This session will address three novel innovations that offer additional strategies in the process of shock trauma patient resuscitation, which have broad implications for all nurse practitioners.

Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta (REBOA), endovascular repair of penetrating and blunt vascular injuries, and molecular absorbent recirculating system (MARS) will each be discussed. Indications, underlying principles, advantages, and contrasts to previous treatment options will also be addressed.
