This instructor's lesson plan guide on soft tissue injuries is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Six units of study are presented: (1) anatomy and physiology of the skin; (2) patient assessment for soft-tissue injuries; (3) pathophysiology and management of soft tissue injuries; (4) techniques of management including dressing and bandaging, controlling external hemorrhage, and dressing and bandaging of an amputation; (5) special considerations in soft tissue injuries to specific areas; and (6) clinical experience in an emergency department. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outline, list of needed equipment and materials, and guidelines for activities to be performed by students applying the skills. Skill evaluation sheets are provided. (It is suggested that each module can be presented individually or combined with other modules to construct a course for a selected group of students. CE 017 514 is a course guide for use in planning and implementation of the total training program.) (JH)
