The purpose of this session, presented by Teleflex, is to provide a unique opportunity to review relevant anatomy associated with critical care and lifesaving emergency procedures. Through the hands-on practicum, participants will enhance their understanding of the various procedures and the associated risks and benefits. The relevant anatomy review will include the airway, chest cavity, and vascular access landmarks. Key opinion leaders, nationally known EMS medical directors, and emergency medical services providers will serve as faculty for this program.
Under expert instruction, participants will have the opportunity to practice the following procedural skills: basic airway management, direct and video laryngoscope intubation, intraosseous access, hemorrhage control, and various other prehospital emergency procedures. The participants will have the opportunity for anatomical exploration as it relates to these procedures, providing a unique appreciation of the anatomy and the impact of the disease process. An analysis of the unnecessary risk and the potential for complications when these procedures are performed in suboptimal conditions will be explored.
