A module that helps change of practice in trauma centers worldwide.

The module assumes familiarity with concepts of emergency medicine and some prior interventional experience. Mentice Trauma Management provides essential procedural and technical skills training for REBOA to temporize hemorrhagic shock such as blunt or penetrating abdominal trauma, pelvic fractures causing pelvic hemorrhage, ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms, or the crashing trauma patient.

Additionally, cases provide staged training in embolization techniques for the more experienced team, including correctly identifying and controlling pelvic hemorrhage. Numerous types of embolotherapy are available, including gelatin sponges and coil embolization, and the staged cases include varying number of bleeding sites and difficulty level.

Accurate tactile and visual feedback facilitates the trainee’s understanding of proper use of common endovascular trauma management techniques.

Mentice Trauma Management provides a platform for:

  • Cross-specialty planning and communication in the trauma center
  • Understanding endovascular management of vascular trauma
  • Training the REBOA technique in a stepwise approach for changing practice from an open procedure to a closed procedure
  • Individual or team training of various trauma embolization techniques
  • Training of essential endovascular technical and manipulation skills
