Managing trauma patients in the health facilities have been a problem. This mess is due to the emergency related to the condition thereby making it difficult to control and hence leading to a loss of life. In addition to the emergence issue, the nurses available in the health care units did not have the unique skills to handle these patients. Due to these, a program was enhanced to introduce a course in the nursing department known as the shock course (Lewis, 2016). This course was initially meant for the nurses in the rural areas. However, its importance for all the nurses was discovered to assist in the management of shock globally.

The shock course is a very short training that involves hands-on workshop designed for emergency teams especially in the health cares. The participants in this training will review the management of the hemodynamically unstable victims and also discuss the necessary steps that must be taken by each member of the health provider team in the process of treating these patients. The course is very interactive and involves practicing with machines such as the ultrasounds which are essential in the treatment of shock (Dellinger, 2013). Moreover, this course has instructors that are experienced in critical care for the patients.


The shock patients are very delicate to handle since sometimes they convulse a lot. The most common of this is the cardiogenic shock which has claimed so many lives in the recent time. These patients need a lot of attention and quick medical application which can only be achieved by skilled health providers to curb the emergency issues. These led to the need to have a special training unit to give training to the nurses. Most health care should consider taking this course to their nurses and other teams to equip them and make them ready for any shock conditions (Process investigator, 2014).
