Adult Multisystem Trauma

Case Summary

A 71 year old man presents after a high speed MVC. He is tachycardic and hypoxic on arrival. He is found to have a pneumothorax that requires urgent management. His FAST is initially negative but becomes positive on repeat. Learners should consider the concurrent diagnosis of neurogenic shock. The case has a full series of ultrasound images so learners can complete the FAST, a specific trauma tray, and a series of procedural slides for them to complete the finger decompression and thorocostomy.


The following slides are deliberately “view only” (since they are the master slides). To use them – you simply need to copy and paste the slides you would like to use into your own, new Google Slides Document.

How can you make your Virtual Resus Room using these slides?
  1. Click on link for Room
  2. This will open in a new tab as a “View Only” Google Slide document
  3. Google Slide -> File -> Make a copy -> Entire presentation
  4. Copy document pops up. Name case. Press Ok.
    • Name slide set something generic like “Room A” so it doesn’t contain spoilers when you share with your learners!
  5. This will open new tab as your editable Google Slide document
  6. File -> Version History -> Name Current Version -> “Unused Room”
    • This will save this untouched version of the room before the case starts (See “Resetting Room after Case” in “Running the Sim”:)
