Mr Jordan Bade-Boon

BMedSc (Hons), National Trauma Research Institute

MBBS Student, Monash University

Mr Bade-Boon has completed two preclinical years and one clinical year of his MBBS at Monash University and has intermitted in 2016 to undertake his Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours).

For his research project, Mr Bade-Boon is focussed on the clinical presentation and diagnosis of aortic injuries in blunt trauma. Aortic injuries present a challenging clinical scenario given the non-specific nature of clinical signs and the possible distractions presented by associated injuries. The thesis will specifically focus on abnormalities in vital signs and other clinical variables that can be detected in the prehospital phase or soon after arrival to the Emergency Department.
