Pre Hospital Anaesthesia and Transport Medicine

Dette er studietilbudet for studieår 2019-2020. Endringer kan komme.


This course aims to introduce the students to the challenges and specific features of prehospital anaesthesia. Anaesthesia trained personnel should after this course have deeper knowledge about specifics of prehospital anaesthesia to safely provide this in prehospital critical care. Non-anaesthesia trained personnel should after this course be able to safely assist in the provision of prehospital anaesthesia and contribute to safe anaesthesia practice. Also, this course aims to provide the student with a theoretical framework for the acquisition of a range of clinical skills relevant to the transport of critically ill or injured patients leading towards competence in managing transports in pre-hospital critical care.
This proficiency will be based on the comprehension of the latest scientific evidence and the current best practice in specific areas of critical emergency medicine. Moreover, the ability to apply high quality assessment and treatment to these patients and the ability to analyse, discuss and reflect upon current guidelines, standard operating procedures and knowledge within this field of practice, both on an individual and a system level.

Læringsutbytte

A candidate who has completed this course should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:
Knowledge
The candidate can...
- Critically appraise needs and challenges, indications and contraindications for transport in individual cases of patients that require transport outside the hospital.
-Discuss different transport modes, their influence on the patient and the individual needs for monitoring during transport.
-Evaluate indications and challenges of prehospital anaesthesia and anaesthesia management
- Assess the effect of relevant anaesthestic agents used in prehospital critical care with emphasis on pharmacological effect, pharmacokinetics and -dynamics, physiological effect in the critically ill in extreme environments.
Skills
The candidate can...
-Devise a plan for the transport of a critically ill or injured patient, which takes into consideration hazards and threats to safe conduct of patient transport, and medical, technical, organisational and logistical factors and challenges.
-Demonstrate the ability to work effectively in an inter-professional transport team.
-Demonstrate the ability to plan and safely provide or support the provision of prehospital anaesthesia in critically ill or injured patients outside the hospital, depending on pre-course level of anaesthesia training
General Competence
The candidate can...
-Demonstrate the ability to critically review new knowledge and scientific literature, and discuss its implication on current practice, both on the individual provider- and system level
- Demonstrate the ability to plan and execute safe transport of critically ill or injured patients with allocation of roles and responsibilities for members of the transport team depending on their training and competence.
- Provide safe anaesthesia practice according to national standards and guidelines with emphasis on good patient safety
