Thursday

Description

This module will focus on our management of patients in varying states of hypothermia, specifically managing the hypothermic patient and identifying what tools we have access to for assessment and treatment. As water rescues also may involve hypothermia management, this course will also cover water safety and how to manage the near drowning patient.

Learning Objectives:
– How to assess and handle hypothermia in the prehospital setting.
– How does hypothermia affect us?
– What assessment tools should be implemented on the ambulance for the hypothermic individual?
– What steps should be taken to stabilize the hypothermic pt?
– Identify the safety risks associated with the near-drowning pt?
– What are the different phases of drowning?
– What changes between a cold water immersion vs cold water submersion?
