Acute Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Carbon monoxide (CO) is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, making it difficult to identify without the use of a detector. It is created during an incomplete combustion of organic materials, and can be released from many different sources, like car exhaust, burning of natural gases, and forest fires. Patients suffering from acute carbon monoxide poisoning can have immediate and long-lasting effects from exposure. In this course we will review actions EMS providers should take when working with patients suffering from CO poisoning, the delayed injuries that may be caused, and what EMS providers should look for when diagnosing.

Allergic Reactions and Anaphylaxis (ALS)

Allergic reactions, including their more severe form, anaphylaxis, represent an exaggerated or hypersensitive response following exposure to any of a number of triggers or allergens, like food, medications, or pollen. Allergic and anaphylactic reactions are typically but not always mediated by the immune system and are most notable for the fact that many other people would not experience any such reaction when exposed to the same triggers. Anaphylaxis represents the more severe and potentially life-threatening form of an allergic reaction. Your ability to recognize and treat allergic reactions can mean the difference between life and death for some patients. In this course, we'll discuss how the immune system may trigger allergic reactions, anaphylaxis recognition and treatment, as well as epinephrine administration.

EMS and Athletic Training

Athletic trainers are medical professionals who work directly with athletes to prevent injuries from happening but also to care for those injuries when they do occur. Working hand in hand with EMS providers is important to ensure a smooth treatment and transition of patients both on and off the field. In this course, we will review how EMS providers and athletic trainers can work together to achieve this and create a better working relationship for all involved.

Endocrine Emergencies (ALS)

The endocrine system plays a key role in managing fluid balance, hormones, electrolytes, and chemicals to maintain homeostasis in the body. Parts of this system may fail for various reasons, warranting EMS intervention. In this course, we’ll review the endocrine system and its structures. Then, we’ll examine the causes, symptoms, and treatment for diabetic emergencies like diabetic ketoacidosis, thyroid disorders, including thyroid storm and myxedema, adrenal gland disorders (like Cushing's disease and Addison's disease), and finally parathyroid gland emergencies, including hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia.
