Case Records of the Joint Trauma System Episode 6 (Critical Care Edition): From the 2019 SCCM Meeting - #118
At the 2019 annual meeting of the Society of Critical Care Medicine, the US military Joint Trauma System (JTS) held another session of the increasingly popular "Case Records of the Joint Trauma System". This is a planned series of presentations where an expert panel is presented with interesting and challenging battlefield trauma cases drawn from the Department of Defense Trauma Registry. This registry has captured data on all wounded patients treated at forward military medical treatment facilities during combat and post-combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. This program has been spearheaded by Colonel Jennifer Gurney, an Army trauma surgeon and the current Chief of Trauma Systems Development with the JTS. This challenging and entertaining session focused on critical care management issues and was co-moderated by Colonel Gurney and Colonel (ret) Lee Cancio. The expert panel consisted of: LTC Jeremy Pamplin, Lt Col Jeremy Cannon, COL (ret) John Oh, COL Kevin Chung, and COL Jay Johannigman.
