Abstract

TRAUMA.ORG http://www.trauma.org/resus/moulage/moulage.html is an excellent and well-structured presentation of trauma moulage scenarios. The serious pedantic experience is lightened by humorous let-downs following incorrect responses to the questions posited at every stage – there are no passengers on this journey! But the exhilaration of correctly handling an extremely ill patient is almost a reward in itself. Onsite revision notes are to be found under “Resources” and then “Information Repository” to assist progression through the 6 progressive scenarios. The various trauma categories listed have their own interactive simulations. The website says that it “exists to promote and disseminate the knowledge and practice of injury prevention and trauma care throughout the world … Bringing together the knowledge and experience of doctors, nurses, paramedics, researchers and all groups directly and indirectly related to trauma management, it has established an online, global, trauma community that promotes and furthers the care of the injured patient.” On the left menu is to be found an “Image Bank” with a large gallery of images of traumatic injuries.
