This talk was designed to provide an update for anaesthetists in the management of traumatic brain injury with a particular focus on management within the emergency department.

Mythbusting: ATLS and Cervical Spine Injury

These are the slide sets for the talks I was invited to give at the 2016 GAT (Group of Anaesthetists in Training) ASM. The full program of the meeting can be found here.

The ATLS talk was designed to look at the history leading to the development of the ATLS course and how it fits in with the management of trauma in the 21st century. I also made some suggestions as to how trauma training could be improved in the UK. The cervical spine injury talk aimed to dispel the many myths that surround spinal cord injury and airway management.
