HEMS Debrief #9 – Dr Brian Burns (part one)

In the ninth episode of the Sydney HEMS Debrief series, we have the first half of a two-part episode!

Join us as Sydney HEMS Senior Staff Specialist Dr Brian Burns discusses the recognition, aetiology and treatment of different types of shock in our pre-hospital trauma patients. Whilst pre-hospital clinicians may have a natural bias towards hypovolaemic shock secondary to blood loss, Dr Burns discusses the many mimics of hypovolaemic shock, and how it is crucial we remain mindful of other causative acute and subacute pathologies.

See some show notes below for more resources.

Thanks for listening!
