E-CPR, VADs and ECMO: Oh My!

E-CPR, VADs and ECMO: Oh My!

In this webinar, learners will be introduced to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and its broad applications. It is a well-established therapy, and its use is becoming more widespread. Most tertiary facilities have ECMO programs and capability. EMS personnel could be called on to transport these critically ill patients, and this lecture provides a broad overview. ECMO has been used in the field as a resuscitative adjunct. In the future, it is possible that some centers in the United States may consider this option. In this course, Dr. Misselbeck also provides a provocative look at the potential of this emerging technology for the future.

Emergency Medical Response

Most fire departments have emergency medical technicians or paramedics on their crew to provide emergency medical services (EMS). Even if they’re not part of the EMS team, firefighters are typically first on the scene and will be expected to begin basic medical treatment until EMS arrives. This module introduces the EMS service and covers some basic skills firefighters need to begin appropriate care of sick and injured patients as well as protect themselves from injury and disease. Content in this module is aligned with the NFPA 1001, Standards for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Emergency Medical Services 6.1, “General EMS requirements.”

Fire Behavior

Fire behavior is a core principle to becoming a proficient firefighter. Understanding fire behavior will allow firefighters to progress with smarter and safer firefighting tactics. This module examines the science behind fire, heat, combustion, decay, and the hazards that may appear along each stage. Content in this module is aligned with the NFPA 1001 Standards for Fire Fighter Professional Qualifications, Fire Fighter I: 4.3.11 and 4.3.12, “Fireground Operations.”
