19 Jul 2019 IMU Lecturer and Students Shine at 1st Borneo Trauma Update 2019 Conference and Trauma Moulage Competition
3 – 5 July 2019 – Dr Rosdara Masayuni, won the first prize in the oral poster presentation for her poster entitled “An Experience in Perak PARA SUKMA Medical Standby – Injury Pattern and the Challenges” at the 1st Borneo Trauma Updates Conference and Trauma Moulage Competition. Together with five Semester 9 IMU medical students, Dr Rosdara Masayuni was one of the participants at this competition organised by the Emergency Department and Surgical Department of Hospital Tawau.
At the same competition, a student, Sharon Chong Zi Ching, presented an oral paper titled “A rare case of Hyperthrophic Cardiomyopathy – Significant use of AED”. She gave a very convincing and confident presentation on the role and awareness of medical personnel and the layman in using AED at prehospital setting.
The event also had a trauma moulage (TM) competition, which assessed the art and skill in resuscitation of a mock polytrauma injury. The IMU TM team, consisting of Semester 9 students, was the only team with all medical students as its team members. The other nine teams in this competition had medical personnel with many years of clinical experiences – each team led by a senior medical officer. Nevertheless, the IMU team was the 2nd highest in theory examnination and 5th in the Trauma Moulage competition (Practical). Their performance was excellent and inspiring.
Dr Mahathar bin Abdul Wahab, Head of Service, Emergency Medicine, Malaysia, gave a lecture titled “Targeted Goals in Trauma Resuscitation” and enlightened participants on the importance to “Response Fast, Act Correctly and Save Lives” – as per conference theme.
In summary, this was a fruitful meeting for all participants in providing awareness and exposure to healthcare providers and medical students in managing trauma case at its maximum potential, and applying the currents updates in management. This may significantly minimise patient mortality and morbidity.
