Transcript

  • 1. By ANU SANDHYA PG WARD 3
  • 2. OBJECTIVE Identify the correct sequence of priorities for assessment of a multiply injured pt. Apply the principles outlined in primary and secondary evaluation surveys of ATLS. Apply guidelines and techniques in the initial resusitative and definitive care phases of treatment.
  • 3. ATLS PREPARATION AND TRIAGE. PRIMARY SURVEY RESUSITATION ADUNCTS TO PRIMARY SURVEY CONSIDER NEED FOR PATIENT TRANSFER SECONDARY SURVEY ADJUCTS TO SECONDARY SURVEY CONTINUED POSTRESUSITATION AND REEVALUATION OF THE PATIENT. DEFINITIVE CARE.
  • 4. PREPARATION•PREHOSPITAL PHASE•HOSPITAL PHASE PREHOSPITAL PHASE:Coordination with the prehospital agency and personelcan greatly fasten the treatment in the field. They informthe receiving hospital which mobilizes the trauma team toED. HOSPITAL PHASEAdvance planning for the trauma pt. beneficial. It savestime.
  • 5. TRIAGEThe process of categorizing victims or mass casualties based on their need for treatment and the resources available.ITS MAIN GOALS ARE. Prevent avoidable deaths. Ensure proper initial treatment with a minimal time frame. Avoid misusing assests on hopeless cases.
  • 6. Multiple casualties No. of patients and the severity of their injuries do not exceed the ability of the facility to provide care. MASS CASUALTIES The no. of patients and the severity of their injuries exceed the ability of the facility to provide care.
  • 7. PRIMARY SURVEYWhat is the quick ,simple way to assess the trauma patient in 10 seconds?A comlete sentence spoken by pt. tells us:1. Airway is patent.2. Breathing intact.3. Good cerebral circulation.
  • 8. AIRWAY MAINTAINENCEWITH C-SPINE PROTECTION Assess for obstruction, foreign bodies, facial fractures, bleeding causing airway compromise… begin measures to establish airway.PITFALLS Recognize impending obstruction early before intubation becomes too difficult. If unable to control airway surgical airway is must. Unknown tracheal or laryngeal disruption.
  • 9. Simple maneuvers Chin lift Jaw thrust Suction Oropharyngeal and nasopharyngeal airway Laryngeal mask airway Laryngeal tube airway Gum elastic bougie. Definitive airway Surgical airway.
  • 10. INDICATIONS OF DEFINITIVEAIRWAY UNCONCIOUS GCS <8 RISK OF ASPIRATION RISK OF IMPENDING OBSTRUCTION.
  • 11. BREATHINGInspectionAuscultationPalpationPercussion Identify and manage life threatening problems first• Tension pneumothorax• Cardiac temponade• Massive hemothorax• Open pneumothorax• Flail chest with pulmonary contusion
  • 12. maneuvers Bag and mask ventilation Needle thoracocentesis Pericardiocentesis Chest tube intubation
  • 13. CIRCULATION ANDHEMORRHAGE CONTROLAssess for: Shock External bleeding Occult bleeding Estimate the blood loss on initial presentation of patient and the signs and symptoms Replace fluid accordingly, 2 litres of warm crystalloid solution.
  • 14. DISABILITY GCS PUpillary reaction and size EXPOSURE Undress the patient completely but prevent hypothermia. Logrolling and looking for back of the pt. is very important.
  • 15. ADJUCTS TO PRIMARYSURVEY ANDRESUSSITATION ECG PULSE OXIMETRY Xray chest AP view Xray pelvis AP view URINARY CATHETER GASTRIC CATHETER BLOOD PRESSURE ABGS FAST DPL
  • 16. NEED TO TRANSFER orREFER?
  • 17. SECONDARY SURVEYSecondary survey does not begin until the primary survey is completed,resuscitative efforts are established and patient is demonstrating normalization of vital functions.It includes: Head to toe evaluation AMPLE history • Allergy • Medications currently taking • Past illness • Last meal • Event/environment related to injury. physical examination Reassessment of all vital organs.
  • 18. Adjucts to secondary survey CT SCAN CONTRAST STUDIES EXTREMITY XRAY ENDOSCOPY ULTRASONOGRAPHY
  • 19. POSTRESUSITATIONMONITORING ANDREEVALUATION Reevaluaion for new finding or overlooked. Continous monitoring of vital signs. Effective analgesia.
  • 20. DEFINATIVE CARE AFTER identifying the patients injury. Managing life threatening problems Obtaining special studies. If the patients injuries exceed the capabilities of the institution.
  • 21. Take home message1. ABCDE APPROACH.2. TREAT GREATEST THREAT TO LIFE.3. DEFINITIVE DIAGNOSIS IS NOT IMMEDIATELY IMPORTANT.4. TIME IS THE ESSENCE.5. DO NO FURTHER HARM THE PATIENT
  • 22. CASE A 20 year old woman is found trapped in her automobile. Several hours are required to extricate her because her leg was trapped and twisted beneath the dash board. In the hospital she is hemodynamically unstable with pulse of 120bpm, r/r 14, bp 80mmhg systolic only, she has a large wound in her left leg which is bleeding profusely..
