Trauma Management: Public Access Trauma Kit Familiarization With Hands-On Scenario-Based Application
Faculty: Lieutenant Dan Stout, EMT-P
Brought to you in partnership with Tactical Medical Solutions

With all of the events we now face in modern times, the likelihood of being present during a critical incident involving injury is ever increasing. Those events could be acts of violence such as an active shooter, terrorism event, or other criminal act. Additionally, they could be a result of accidents such as vehicle crashes, recreational injuries, or even a workplace incident. Lastly, they could fall into the category of a natural disaster such as a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, flood, or fire. Whatever the “Mechanism of Injury” is, the result is patients who are seriously injured and potentially in great numbers.

Over the years, people have been given the opportunity to learn CPR and utilize an AED should they find themselves near a cardiac emergency, in recent years courses have been offered to the public on how to respond during critical incidents and treat traumatic injuries. Just as AED’s have become more common and accessible, so have “Public Access Trauma Kits.” These kits are mounted similarly to AEDs in common, public places where anyone can access them should the need arise. Even the most highly trained personnel do not have access to their normal compliment of equipment or resources, especially when they are “off duty” or not at work. These Public Access Trauma Kits allow professionally trained personnel the ability to render aid as well as lay personnel who have been trained.
This course will familiarize the students with the concepts and equipment commonly used with Public Access Trauma Kits. Through lecture, hands on repetition, and scenario utilizing hi-fidelity/hi technology trauma manikins, attendees will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to utilize a Public Access Trauma Kit effectively. Topics that will be addressed will include:

  • Tactical Considerations such as “situational awareness” and potential response (Run/Hide/Fight)
  • Legal: Duty to Act, Good Samaritan, Abandonment, and Deliberate Indifference
  • Tactical Combat Casualty Care/TCCC and Tactical Emergency Casualty Care/TECC
  • Quick Triage and Patient Assessment
  • BLS Skills utilizing common components of Public Access Trauma Kits
  • Considerations for Casualty Evacuation
