Abstract

In recent years, significant progress has been made in the treatment of severe injuries and traumas. In critical situations, for the heaviest category of wounded, the outcome is largely determined in the next few minutes after admission to the hospital. The only possible tactic that gives a chance to save the lives of such victims is the tactics of multi-stage surgical treatment (damage control). The low effectiveness of traditional methods of training surgeons in the basics and techniques of this tactic makes it necessary to develop new forms of training. One of the most progressive and sought-after is training on biological material (large animals or cadaver material), but the methodology for conducting such studies has not been worked out before. For the first time in Russia in November 2018, a unique training and practical course «SMART» (Modern Methods and Algorithms for the Treatment of Wounds and Traumas) was conducted, combining training in both living tissues and cadavers. Participants were given the opportunity to see and independently work out the basic combinations of typical surgical techniques and maneuvers aimed at eliminating the life-threatening consequences of injuries and traumas.
