National experts in emergency medicine and trauma care will join the Office of EMS to discuss the lessons learned from Iraq and Afghanistan and how prehospital tourniquet application is saving the lives of fighters overseas. The panel will address the guideline development process using external hemorrhage control as a model and will discuss suggestions for guideline implementation.

“EMS leaders can advance their systems by using evidence-based guidelines, such as the guideline for external hemorrhage control, to make sure that their treatment protocols are based on sound research and data,” said Drew Dawson, Director of NHTSA’S Office of EMS. “This webinar will provide a first-hand look at how to save lives in the prehospital setting by using tourniquets and hemostatic dressings and will give participants the chance to discuss these guidelines with the physicians who developed them and agencies who have already put the guidelines to use.”

Attendees will be encouraged to participate in an open question-and-answer session, with the webinar and Q&A lasting approximately one hour. Every other month, the EMS FOCUS webinar series will provide a venue to discuss critical initiatives, issues, and challenges for EMS stakeholders nationwide.
