Aided CPR Effects on Cardiac Arrest Outcomes

While unaided, manual CPR has been done for a long time and has saved many lives. Now, devices are available to increase survivability and benefit patients in need of this life-saving maneuver. Throughout this course, we will compare the results of device-aided CPR to manual unaided, as well as discuss the effects of CPR on the body.

Cardiac Emergencies in the Pre-Hospital Setting

This course will discuss treating cardiac emergencies in the pre-hospital environment. Topics discussed include predicting patient flow, the cardiovascular system, pit crew CPR, cardiac arrest strategies, cardiac arrest drugs, dysrhythmia, ACLS, what to do if the rhythm is too slow or too fast, and other cardio vascular diseases.

Chest Pain in Women

It is critical for EMS providers to have an understanding of the difference of the presentation of chest pain between men and women. Too often, chest pain and heart attacks in female patients can go untreated and undiagnosed. This course will examine the similarities and differences men and women experience with angina and the differences in causes.

E-CPR, VADs, and ECMO: Oh My!

In this webinar, learners will be introduced to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and its broad applications. It is a well-established therapy, and its use is becoming more widespread. Most tertiary facilities have ECMO programs and capability. EMS personnel could be called on to transport these critically ill patients, and this lecture provides a broad overview. ECMO has been used in the field as a resuscitative adjunct. In the future, it is possible that some centers in the United States may consider this option. In this course, Dr. Misselbeck also provides a provocative look at the potential of this emerging technology for the future.

Identifying Cardiac Emergencies Using 12-Lead ECG

When there�s a life-threatening cardiac emergency, time is of the essence. 12-lead ECGs are useful diagnostic tools, but clinicians must be able to accurately and quickly identify life-threatening emergencies. This course will discuss ECG interpretation in the prehospital environment and give the learner practice interpreting sample ECGs.

LVO Stroke Recognition

Prehospital stroke care continues to evolve. Over the past five years, mechanical thrombectomy has emerged as the preferred treatment option for patients presenting with large vessel occlusion strokes. EMS agencies are now being challenged to recognize large vessel occlusions on-scene and consider direct transport to comprehensive stroke centers for mechanical thrombectomy. In this course, we will review the current paradigm of prehospital stroke care, review the growing body of literature evaluating prehospital stroke severity tools, and discuss the numerous items affecting transport decisions.
