Rise of the Machines: Mechanical CPR and What the Studies Don’t Tell You


This Webcast, sponsored by Physio-Control, will focus on how to ask the right questions to find out if your system would benefit from mechanical CPR technology, how to properly implement mechanical CPR to maximize compression fraction and minimize pauses, and how to consider how these devices can change the way we approach cardiac arrest, specifically refractory ventricular fibrillation and PEA.

Response Times? Pfft! Bring on the Clinical Benchmarks


We know that response times aren't the only (or even best) way to measure the clinical performance of our EMS systems. It's not like we don't know what to measure. Several very good clinical benchmarks have been published, giving us a great starting place. It is now up to us to find a way to measure and use them to improve our practices.

Join Dr. Jeff Jarvis, an EMS physician, paramedic and self-proclaimed data geek as he covers topics including:

"¢ Limitations of response times as the sole indicator for system performance
"¢ Common clinical benchmarks and why they are important
"¢ How to improve our practices by harnessing the data our systems provide us
"¢ Current limitations on benchmarking metrics across multiple systems

Dr. Jarvis will also engage the audience in a group discussion of how to best define the essential elements of these measurements.

Breaking the Paradigms of Burn Care in EMS


Breaking the paradigm of burn care talks about cooling burns and not leaving patients high and dry.

The Effect Mechanical Ventilators Have on Patient Care and Outcomes in the Prehospital Setting.


The Mesa Fire and Medical Department implemented a prehospital ventilator program in August of 2012. We placed mechanical ventilators on all our responding advanced life support apparatus. The program has continually improved from reviewing 100% of the calls. We have collected all patient outcomes from the local hospitals. This Webcast will share the results this program has had on patient outcomes and discuss the number of prevented intubations by the department and the impact the ventilator program has had on the hospital stay and prevented ICU admissions.

Consistency Counts: The Impact of Mechanical CPR


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.

In this presentation you'll learn:

"¢ How mechanical CPR can impact your system;
"¢ Understand the advantages of mechanical CPR; and
"¢ How mechanical CPR compares to traditional CPR.

A New Look at CPR: BLS Training Tailored to You


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.

A New Format 
The BLS for Prehospital Providers program combines online instruction and classroom training into a single course that leverages current educational trends. Real-world team CPR scenarios show the role individuals play in emergency response situations.

We will introduce the BLS PHP Course and its components. A combination of online and classroom training improves the learning experience and provides greater flexibility for students and instructors, while still delivering hands-on instruction that enhances performance and improves outcomes. This course is scenario based, and allows for discussion of local protocols and how they affect your approach to resuscitation and implementing high-quality team CPR.
