Traumatic injury causes millions of deaths and disabilities globally and cases are rising as road traffic increases. This album features a real-life simulation of the aftermath of a car crash and reveals the crucial steps paramedics must take to tend to the injured driver and get him into the ambulance. It shows the importance of the Platinum Ten Minutes and the Golden Hour, key concepts which the ambulance services follow when dealing with life-threatening conditions. This material forms part of The Open University course SDK125 Introducing health sciences: a case study approach.
