EAST Master Classes

The fields of Trauma, Surgical Critical Care, and Emergency General Surgery are in a state of constant evolution, and frequently require the adoption of new techniques, procedures, technologies, concepts, or treatment paradigms. The EAST Master Classes is a series of live webinars focused on one particular area of new development, techniques, or technology that is of interest to the EAST members and that will promote greater understanding of cutting edge developments affecting the field, and help members to assess the potential for incorporation or adoption into their practice or local program/center. These live webinars will allow time for open discussion and debate among the viewers and presenters immediately following the formal presentation. All EAST Master Class webinars will be recorded and then posted as enduring material on the EAST website and the EAST YouTube channel for viewing or reviewing at any time in the future.

Case Records of the Joint Trauma System: A Battlefield Mortality and Morbidity Conference

This video was recorded during the 30th EAST Annual Scientific Assembly

Modern battlefield trauma care is characterized by highly complex and multi-system injury patterns, severe injuries, and care delivered in an austere and resource-constrained environment. This results in fertile ground for challenging management decisions, adverse events, suboptimal outcomes, and even preventable deaths. This episode was recorded during a session at the 2017 EAST Annual Scientific Assembly that consisted of a moderated discussion of 3 cases from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan that resulted in a potentially preventable death, or major adverse outcome. The cases were presented in a standard M&M conference format, with open audience discussion throughout regarding key management decisions and options, and suggestions for preventing or minimizing the adverse events. There were 4 cases presented, emphasizing every phase of battlefield care, from pre-hospital thru to medical evacuation back to the United States.  Listen also to the audio-only recording through EAST Traumacasts.
