Approach to trauma associated coagulopathy (pathophysiology, assessment and management)
15th October 2020
Major trauma is a significant cause of worldwide mortality, with approximately half of these deaths resulting from haemorrhage. Trauma Induced Coagulopathy is now well recognised as a distinct pathology, associated with increased mortality and transfusion requirements and needs to be managed accordingly. In this webinar we will review the pathophysiology of Trauma Induced Coagulopathy based on rapidly evolving evidence and relate this to current best practice in the clinical management of major trauma patients with signs of major haemorrhage.
Ms Laura Vincent
Laura is very happy to be a Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine and Anaesthesia at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, a major trauma centre, where she is the lead for education and simulation in Adult Intensive Care. She is the past chair of the UK Intensive Care Society trainee committee, through which she has organised multiple national educational meetings. She is heavily involved locally in medical education activities across specialties and training grades, including medical students, who are always great fun to teach and eager to learn about the exciting world of Critical Care! Her real passion lies in inter-disciplinary human factors and simulation training and the impact this has on patient safety and staff wellbeing. She spends her (little) free time being terrorised by her two small children who rule the roost.
