Buchanan looks to install what he believes are the proper attitudes firefighters must have to maximize the potential of their departments, focusing on personal responsibility and priority- and values-based leadership.
A cricothyrotomy is a potentially lifesaving procedure typically performed after every other difficult airway maneuver has failed. It's important for providers to maintain familiarity with the tools and relevant anatomy to perform this rare surgical airway procedure. This webcast will cover best practices for emergency crics, including indications, complications, a discussion of surgical vs. percutaneous approaches and specific technical details.
Cardiac arrest is a major health issue with poor survival outcomes. We have traditionally focused on resuscitating the heart (e.g. return of spontaneous circulation) but not the brain and approximately two-thirds of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients who survive to hospital admission die from brain injury. The brain is especially vulnerable to ischemia and brain injury is the final cause of death and disability for many cardiac arrest patients. There is currently no standard method to measure cerebral perfusion and oxygenation. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is non-invasive and can measure cerebral oxygenation. This may allow focused resuscitation of the brain during CPR and help optimize cardiac arrest resuscitation to improve overall patient outcomes.
Fire departments have the responsibility to deliver quality service every time out the door. To do this, five elements that need to be considered: people, equipment, training, policies, and leadership. Organizations need to strive to provide the best by continually improving their operations with these elements. This class will look at each component and suggest areas to evaluate and improve.
As EMS and healthcare continues to evolve, so will the future of our EMS health systems in specifically dealing with stroke patients. On average, someone in the United States has a stroke every 40 seconds. Education, detection, and the speed at which our healthcare providers can determine the type of stroke will ultimately better our ability to increase brain time and save patient lives.
This webcast will explore the largely untapped potential of ultrasound in the prehospital setting. The ways in which ultrasound can be used to manage medical and trauma conditions in the field will be discussed.
