Integrated course unit module: EMERGENCY AND FIRST-AID MEDICINE

Learning objectives

The training objective of the course is to provide common knowledge elements and a unique language for the team dedicated to emergency management to share problems.
In practice, we want to offer tools to ensure adequate preparation of students (future doctors) for effective management of the emergency, giving the opportunity to address the clinical problems of the emergency, through theoretical and practical training, and acquire the methodology that allows to deal with the emergency effectively. The method includes:

1. the need for a reference to the pathophysiology also in the face of the emergency
2. clear and rapid identification of priorities
3. the obligation to bring a conclusively analytical approach (differential diagnosis, diagnosis and therapy) into a conclusive and operational synthesis



Course unit content

The main issues related to emergency / emergency management in the hospital and on the territory will be addressed, assessing concrete clinical problems, through theoretical and practical training. The appropriate methodology will be provided to enable the urgency / emergency to be dealt with effectively. In addition, we will learn the main anesthetic techniques (general and regional anesthesia) and analgesia. They are showing peripheral blocks and related indications. Through practical exercises each student will understand the importance of pre-operative anesthetic assessment of individual patients, anesthetic drugs, analgesia and the clinical monitoring of the operating period. Finally, the anesthesia will be explained for each surgery.
