TNS Trauma Procedure Video Series

This video series was produced to serve as a resource to support all members of our trauma teams across Nova Scotia. This series uses clinical grade cadavers to demonstrate common procedures required for the management of critically ill trauma patients. We hope these videos will aid in trauma resuscitations and translate into improved patient outcomes.

 

We wish to thank Dr. Sam Minor, Dr. Nick Sowers, and Steve Crocker from EHS LifeFlight for participating in this series, and Truefaux Films for producing the videos. Special thanks to the Simulation Centre at the QEII HSC in Halifax and to the individual who donated their body so that others may benefit.
