REBOA 101: Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta and EMS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

REBOA serves as an endovascular solution to non-compressible hemorrhage below the diaphragm in the abdomen, pelvis and retroperitoneum. It is rapidly becoming a temporizing technique to stave off bleeding and act as a bridge to more definitive care. It's application in the prehospital setting is evolving and prehospital providers will come in contact with patients that will either have a REBOA placed in a receiving hospital or be called upon to transport a patient with a REBOA in place.  This lecture will cover the who, what, when and why of REBOA placement and offer strategies for transport and maintenance of patients with a REBOA catheter in place.
