PRE-CON: Cadaver Lab (3 CE)
-

Scott Lail, Holly Ilg, Janet Taylor, Dan Livengood

Its 3am in the driving rain, your patient is trapped in an upside SUV, and their life depends on a skill you havent done since EMT or Paramedic school…in other words, "the feces just hit the air mover."

This exciting pre-conference course offers each participant, from EMR to Paramedic, the chance to have hands-on experience with a wide range of high acuity/low-frequency skills. The lab will incorporate fresh human specimens in conjunction with anatomical tracheas and lungs as well as mannequins to provide an environment to master basic and advanced skills. Participants will also gain an in-depth knowledge of BLS/ALS airway techniques, surgical cricothyrotomy, bleeding control, vascular access including IV, IO, and central line placement, ventilation management with needle decompression, and thoracostomy. 

The faculty brings with them decades of experience and the many tricks and tips they have learned along the way. Regardless of certification level, every provider will gain new knowledge and a greater appreciation for the human body and the art of EMS!

Learner Objectives:

  • Describe the benefits of a human specimen training lab.
  • Compare and contrast a simple pneumothorax vs. a tension pneumothorax.
  • Understand the risk vs. benefit of different types of airway adjuncts.
  • Demonstrate proper tourniquet application.
  • Learn something new and have fun!
  • Limit 30 per class

    Peer-to-Peer Counseling: Building Strength In Your People and Yourself

    Trauma in the Emergency Medical Provider community is a guarantee. Suicides in first responder communities surpassed line of duty deaths last year. It’s time we promote methods for building strength after trauma. Join Dr. Brenda Tillman, Dr. Erika Sallee, Ben and Scott in this interactive session identifying solutions so that trauma “doesn't become too much”. No taboo topics, just resources and solutions for improving your personal and organizational readiness gap to create space for joy in life.

    Solution Focused Peer Support:

    This presentation offers an opportunity for medical personnel and first responders to open discussions about how to best promote wellness in their strong, culturally specific communities. The participants will discuss effective peer programs and the techniques that build strengths while being impacted by continuous trauma. Discussions of professional and paraprofessional responses and techniques will open concepts and understanding.

    The workshop will focus on the concept of an RG Community and will integrate a Solution-Focused Peer-to-Peer Process, that will be reviewed in a brief didactic component:

    Engage and Align

    Listen to the story (sensory experience)

    Use communication skills to engage conversation (reflecting, paraphrasing, extrapolation, “what else”

    Shift to solutions (strength and resource building/exceptions)

    Scaling for goal awareness and achievement

    Learner Objectives:

    Participants will:

    Gain insight into trauma and how we process and store it.

    Discuss Post-traumatic Stress Disorder/Injury and effective techniques that mitigate impact and symptoms.

    Gain an understanding of and practice with the solution-focused peer-to-peer process.

    Be introduced to the coping quotient concept and discuss how to promote posttraumatic growth after trauma.

    Participants will recognize how the tenets of solution-focused practice change peer support.

    Be introduced to an effective structure for comprehensive well-being programs in the Emergency Medical Provider community.

    Will practice the peer-to-peer process.
