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.
Hamilton and Montes use their experience in law enforcement services to discuss the creation of the latest NFPA standard that addresses and prepares firefighters in their response to these dangerous incidents.
CPAP, BiPAP and high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy are all non-invasive ventilation (NIV) tools that save lives. Discover the history of NIV, see the various NIV tools, patient selection criteria, standards of care, assessment, application, troubleshooting and NIV training tips. Disposable CPAP devices, BiPAP units and soon-to-be available prehospital HFNC units can drastically improve outcomes when used appropriately. Mike McEvoy will show you how NIV can improve the care you provide to patients.
In this webcast, participants will learn about the psychology behind taking care of pediatric patients in the prehospital setting. Why does it make us anxious? Do we make it more challenging than it has to be? Participants will also discover how simulation can be used to help EMTs and paramedics conquer this fear of treating children and young patients.
The opioid epidemic is a multifaceted problem leaving many with unanswered questions. During this webinar, we will review findings from over 30,000 EMS overdose records over the past 18 months to help answer some of them. Tune in as we discuss high-level topics affecting the recent spike in outbreaks.

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.
This webcast 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.
