EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES: CRASH INJURY MANAGEMENT FOR TRAFFIC LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS

The purpose of the study was to develop, document and pilot test a basic training program in crash injury management. The course was developed to provide training in emergency medical care for first responders to traffic accidents. Such individuals are expected to be law enforcement officers patrolling the nation's highways and roads in patrol vehicles. Twenty lessons were developed for the course. These include technical lessons, field training, review sessions and examinations. Course length is 40 hours. The primary course emphasis and the majority of training time are devoted to life-threatening emergencies and caring for injuries/conditions that are crash-related. The course was designed in modular form so that it may be spread out over several weeks in a recruit training program or may be given in a compressed time frame.
