Trauma Series - Facial Injuries
Physical trauma to the face can range from a simple bruise to large and painful lacerations, fractures, and trauma to the eyes, teeth, and nerves. Facial injuries have the potential to disfigure and cause significant loss of function, such as the sense of sight or smell, or even the ability to speak. Proper diagnosis and rapid treatment can minimize and prevent these effects. This course will provide advanced learning for nurses interested in the management of the trauma patient with facial injury.
