Siobhan Wren is an ophthalmologist based at Imperial College in London. It’s a rotation that most of us skipped out on in medical school but with paediatric ocular trauma accounting for a third of all ocular trauma it is something that needs to be on our radar.
In this talk she focuses on the first sixty minutes after the injury – keeping the patient comfortable and safe, not making things worse and a stepwise approach to the basic examination.
This talk was recorded live at DFTB19 in London, England. With the theme of “The Journey” we wanted to consider the journeys our patients and their families go on, both metaphorical and literal. DFTB20 will be held in Brisbane, Australia.
