Conference sessions are 75 minutes in length, unless otherwise noted. Check back often for updated information. Program subject to change. Once you register, admission to conference classes on-site is on a first come, first seated basis. You do not need to visit registration to select/change your classes.
The admission process follow with health and wellness classes for conference attendees, exhibitors and family members of registered attendees. Lectures will be focused on practical information and solutions to help you be and feel your best for the next day.
Join the team from Medical Education Group for a one-of-a-kind educational experience. This intense session will consist of basic and advanced airway procedures, gross anatomy, and vascular access including IO. The full-body non-embalmed cadavers are brought to life with life saving procedures, techniques, and tricks of the trade.
What would happen if you took the additional knowledge and experience of the ALS provider, distilled it down to core concepts, and gave it to the BLS provider? Come to this presentation to find out!
EMS systems use a variety of staffing models to meet the needs of response in their community. These can include EMT providers, paramedic providers, and everything in between. This lecture looks at the science behind EMS staffing and how we got where we are today.
What can you do as an EMS provider to help end the circle of violence? This scenario-based class provides a practical approach to maximizing the effectiveness of EMS response to victims of domestic violence. Case studies, scenarios, and healthy discussions will help you develop both personal and service-based strategies to better prepare to aid the domestic violence patient.
This graphic and fast-moving talk takes an assessment-based approach to head trauma rather than the traditional, and less functional, diagnostic-based approach. Basic providers will benefit from this program, though it is geared more for ALS providers and nurses.
This session provides a basic understanding of the pathophysiology associated with seizures, presentation of the various types of seizures, and prehospital management of the seizure patient. Topics covered include: basic pathophysiology related to primary and secondary seizures; and, signs and symptoms associated with various types of seizures.
Simulation training has evolved from deep roots in aviation to become an essential component of training and education in the health sciences. This session will discuss the results of a comprehensive literature review conducted to assess the use of patient simulators in prehospital education and research. The results of the review suggest that academic research efforts should be focused not only upon the formal use of simulation in EMS education and training, but also to gain an understanding of the incentives and disincentives in this genre of simulation study in an effort to expand the science of prehospital medical simulation. The speaker will expand upon these conclusions and suggest directions for future efforts in prehospital medical simulation operations.
The incidence of out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest is well documented. One subset of this population encompasses young and apparently healthy individuals who participate in strenuous physical activity. This session reviews the underlying pathophysiology that may result in SCA among this group and provides strategies not only for EMS treatment, but also for early recognition of athletes who may be at risk.
Entertainment & technology show inspirational speakers including game changing not just a large-scale conference but a large educational hub.
