The trauma victim bank consists of patients that can be used through the whole medical chain, from the incident site in to the Hospital. All victims come with management cards.
The patient has text on both the front and back side. On the front side is information that you can see or hear from a distance. For example, the patient is lying down and is quiet. On the back is information that you discover after examining the patient. This text is in accordance with the ATLS®/PHTLS®/TNCC® program; A=Airway, B=Breathing, C=Circulation, D=Disability, and E=Exposure.
All ETS victims/patients are included in a database with multiple parameters. The standard patient design (below) is made to fit most triage system. If necessary, parameters can be changed and added.
All victims in the victim bank have an individual management card. The card is used when they arrive in the hospital. On the front page is information about the treatment(s) the patient is given in the Emergency department and the time it will take. Also included is a description of CT/X-ray result and time at X-ray department.
If the patient needs surgery or ICU this information is provided on the back side of the management card where you also can find time at Post-op.
All ETS patients are categorized into different patient outcome categories. Depending on what intervention is made and within what time after the injury, the patient risk preventable complication or preventable death. The patient outcome template is included in the ETS trauma victim bank.
The trauma victim bank is available in large (200 patients/management cards), medium (100 patients/management cards) and small set (50 patients/management cards).
