M

Major Haemorrhage

Major haemorrhage is a leading course of preventable death in a pre-hospital setting all across the world. Major haemorrhage control is the process in which responders stop further external major blood loss by using a variety of interventions such as direct, indirect pressure, haemostatic agents and emergency tourniquets.

A

Airway Management

Airway management is the process in which responders visually manage a patients airway to facilitate airflow. This includes removing obstructions and securing an open airway using various airway adjuncts and suction devices. Airway management can also include the introduction of emergency gases such as oxygen administration.

R

Respiratory & Resuscitation

Respiratory and resuscitation is the process which first-responders would assess for the presence or absence of normal respiratory effort and if required, initiate emergency resuscitation. It also involves the assessment of visually and physically managing thoracic trauma and injuries. Utilising various methods such as vented chest seals and ventilation.

C

Circulation and Shock

Circulation and Shock is the management of all other forms of significant blood loss, that’s not immediately catastrophic in nature, both externally and internally by using trauma dressings, pelvic binders etc. In circulation it is all about preserving our patients blood volume and preventing the development of hypovolaemic shock. 

H

Head, Hypothermia & Handling

Hypothermia & Handling involves the responders identification of time-critical head injuries and managing the patients level of response. In addition to this it encompasses all other injuries such as burns and protection from patients developing hypothermia. Handling involves patient extrication and handover to the next echelon of patient care.

In addition to this RTACC, unlike its comparison courses has been created by subject matter experts in pre-hospital care that follows evidence-based practice meaning the course constantly evolves to remain up to date and consistent with the best standards in pre-hospital care. 

Furthermore, unlike FREC and FPOS providers, all RTACC training providers have to be approved by The ATACC Group and pass a 5-day instructors’ package. 

We’re true believers that you get what you pay for and every RTACC provider, irrespective of price will deliver a good package. However, The Medics Lodge aspire to deliver a great package therefore we do charge a higher course fee. For transparency to our clients, we charge more because not only do we offer more, but we also give more.
