RPP208 Remote Medical Life Support
Mode: Distance Learning
Credits: 5 ECTS
This elective module is designed to give students the skills required to manage a range of minor injuries and minor emergencies that may be encountered in the remote and austere environment. Common injuries have been identified from area-specific literature and the experience of the teaching faculty of working in remote and austere environments.
The Remote Medical Life Support course focuses on the top twenty ailments seen by remote medics, military medics, or any healthcare provider working in austere locations. According to research conducted by the Department of Defence, the majority of injuries and ailments found in a deployed setting fall into the non-combat injury category. Therefore, Disease and Non-Battle Injuries (DNBI) cause more interruption and loss of production than any other type of injuries. Additionally, civilian remote medics see that 18 of the top 20 injuries and ailments are non-trauma based. This article is based on that research. Therefore, CoROM has used this research to design and launch the Remote Medical Life Support course.
