Robert Jones is a Consultant Interventional Radiologist at QE Hospital Birmingham.
This webinar will focus on the role of Interventional Radiology (IR) in trauma, raise awareness and provide information on when IR is appropriate.
A review of the relevant evidence base will be included, for pelvic, peripheral and solid organ injury with illustrative ‘real-life’ case examples.
Controversies, logistical challenges and the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach will also be addressed with the overall aim of improving knowledge, patient pathways and outcomes with the involvement of IR in trauma where appropriate.
Having worked in the emergency services for more than fifteen years, Dan Farnworth has seen it all. There was the time he was called to take away a dead body - only for the 'corpse' to jolt back into life and demand to know what he was doing in her house.
Earlier in his career, he unwittingly disturbed a crime scene as he shared the sad news of the victim's death with her son. Along with the 18,000 other paramedics in the UK who serve us day and night, Dan constantly finds himself pushed into extraordinary circumstances where he not only has to deal with those he has been sent to help, but also their worried families and friends - and even with irate drivers who object to his ambulance getting in their way as he desperately works to save someone's life.

In Sweden and the Netherlands, when reporting a cardiac arrest, a UAV carrying a defibrillator can be dispatched to your location, using your phone’s GPS signal as a guide, within minutes. In Rwanda and Ghana, drones carrying blood and medicines are tasked by WhatsApp or text message to remote clinics; 70% of remote area blood outside the urban centres in these countries is now delivered via these means.
Military UAVs now deliver supplies and ammunition forward and they are therefore ready to casevac patients from the battlefield - including hot zone collection.
Col Parker will examine how UAVs will influence battlefield resupply and casualty evacuation, including in-flight resuscitation and surgery on the asymmetric battlefields of tomorrow.
He will also look at how these lessons from the battlefield can be used in civilian medicine.
Trauma Care was founded in 1996 to address the need for commonly agreed standards of best clinical practice in the management of trauma. We aim to improve the outcome of the trauma victim by establishing best practice throughout the whole chain of care. We achieve this through education, research and publishing. No other organisation encompasses the diverse specialities involved in care of trauma victims from the moment of injury, to the return to active life.
