Extrication and EMS: Coordinating Team Delivery of Critical Care

Friday, April 19
Classroom Session

Good vehicle extrication demands a unique collaboration between rescue and emergency medical personnel. Incorporating key victim assessment information in the extrication size-up will improve your strategic and tactical plans. To save a patient (not just chop up a vehicle), rescue and EMS must understand each other’s jobs and work together effectively. This program uses a real-world approach to incorporate EMS care considerations in the extrication strategy. It shows how the most critical trauma encountered in vehicle collisions can be managed quickly and effectively by first responders. This program will help you make better strategic extrication decisions and more safely deliver immediate life-saving treatment, reducing the time from patient contact to patient removal to patient surgery.
