She has been involved with patients that has collapsed or had seizures.
-I did not think I would be taking care of emergency cases to this extent, it has become more often than I thought, says Marie Sofie.
For a few months in early 2014, she read a distance learning course in emergency care at Luleå University to deepen her knowledge.
-In the municipality you works often alone and I have sometimes felt that I could too little to feel safe. When something happens acute you wants to know more than cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), said Marie Sofie.
-This course has been great, I would love to go again, she says.
Marie Sofie Ulander and her classmates graduated during a day at the university in March.
The graduation included that they could master the so-called ATLS model (Advanced Trauma Life Support) for acute care.
Operations is carried out according to a flowchart of A to E (Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Disability, Exposure).
-It involves thinking systematically. One begins with the essentials, to secure airway, then checks to breathing and so on. You can follow it here to save lives, says Erika Larsson, a nurse from Hudiksvall.
Jonas Nilsson, a nurse in the emergency department at Danderyd Hospital, feel the course has given valuable knowledge.
-Even if you work daily with emergency care can always be better. Since it is an advantage if one were to look for a new job in the future, he says.
Fact: Acute care according to Advanced Trauma Life Support follows a flowchart from AE
A - Airway (Airway, create free air with simultaneous cervical spine stabilization and / or immobilization).
B - Breathing (breathing, check for breathing).
C-Circulation (check circulation).
D - Disability (Neurologist Status).
E - Exposure (Exposure, take the garment to detect any damage to the body).
