Coming Soon: We are all caught up here at the office. Of course, we are always working on another project (either in our heads or actually on paper) but for now the latest topic was just released in September.
Just released :
The Final Cut: Field Amputations. Rarely are we faced with having to perform a field amputation. More common though is the reality that we have a patient who has already done the amputating for us with an MVA, Farm accident, or a power tool gone wrong. How do we manage these patients? Can that body part be salvaged? And what if (God forbid) we ARE faced with the need to amputate? Do you have a policy in place? Do you have a Field Amputation Team (or the like) available as a resource?
Just the Facts: COVID. Not just another COVID lecture, we will look at assessment and pathophysiology of how the COVID virus affects the human body and why some people do much worse with this virus than others.
Time is Brain: Stroke Assessment and Treatment Guidelines. Focusing on the 2020 AHA guidelines, we will look at stroke assessment and what the latest guidelines are in improving patient outcome.
Short Circuit: Seizures. We will review the new seizure classification system and treatment considerations in addition to finally addressing pseudo-seizures and Pseudo Seizures (hint: yes there is a difference)
The Right Stuff: Critical Care application ALS version. A spin-off of the critical care version, this version is for the typical "street" medic who runs all types of calls.
