Manual Nonfatal Strangulation Assessment (Forensic Learning Series) 2017 Original pdf
This workbook is designed to standardize anatomic nomenclature, as it relates to the head and neck, for both new and experienced sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs) and sexual assault forensic examiners (SAFEs), first responders, medical residents and physicians, nursing students, and nurse practitioners, including nurse midwives, women’s health nurse practitioners, pediatric nurse practitioners, and forensic nurse practitioners. Manual Nonfatal Strangulation Assessment for Health Care Providers and First Responders will teach beginning first responders, SANE/SAFE practitioners, medical residents and nursing students the language of evidence-based evaluative methods of care for the strangulation patients. It will present peer-reviewed strangulation case studies with a clear history, photographic representation and confirmation of anatomical landmarks and injuries, discussions about existing conditions and their influence, identification of injury, evidence-based collection techniques, and treatment based on current standards of practice. Offering this workbook to first responders and health care providers will help fulfill their need for basic, peer-reviewed information and will contribute to continuing competence in care for strangulation patients.
