Understanding Simulation Training in Paramedic Education – Follow-up Data from a NAEMSE Research Project
During this webinar we will examine some of the findings revealed from the study conducted by the NAEMSE Research Committee. Discussion points will include how and where simulations are being conducted, feedback and assessment strategies, and scenario obtainment.
In this webcast Memphis Fire Department EMS Medical Director Joe Holley, MD, describes the background and results of implementing mechanical CPR in a large metropolitan EMS system.
Join us on September 9th for an introduction to the newest BLS course, geared specifically toward prehospital providers. We will introduce the latest course that combines flexibility and allows for customization to meet your needs. You will learn how feedback from the EMS community shaped this course, the concept of high-performance teams and how to provide the best resuscitation possible.
Learn best practices associated with managing supply and logistical issues for a variety of EMS system deployment designs.
We have long used positive pressure (e.g. CPAP) to treat patients with emergent issues such as pulmonary edema to drive fluids out of the chest, and lower cardiac output and blood pressure. What about using negative pressure? Learn how enhancing negative pressure in the chest with Intrathoracic Pressure Regulation (IPR) Therapy can increase perfusion and treat patients in states of low blood flow (e.g. shock and cardiac arrest).
Mobile integrated healthcare presents an enormous growth opportunity for EMS, but the question of “who pays?” must first be answered. Matt Zavadsky and Roxanne Shanks share examples of successful MIH programs and their funding models.
The new Ferno iN∫X Integrated Patient Transport and Loading System, introduced to the EMS market in April, stands to revolutionize the way EMS crews secure, transfer and load patients in the field.
Hear about the latest research on shock, how development of a new non-invasive monitor called the compensatory reserve index (CRI) will help us predict it earlier, and how new non-invasive treatment modalities like the ResQGARD ITD are currently being deployed to help buy time for victims of shock until the underlying causes can be treated.
