Day 1

Monday June 10, 2024

Registration

7:30 am - 4:00 pm

Lead Presenter: Chief Dan Moran, Davie Fire Rescue

Max of 75 participants

Description:

Hosted by Florida Department of Health

The EMS report cards for V.F. witnessed cardiac arrest survival are in, and the results for most communities in the United States are dismal. Many large U.S. cities average less than 10%. Yet, there is hope. Seattle and King County, Washington, report over 60% survival, among the highest in the world. Why is this? What can your community do to improve?

This one (1) day training is designed to help EMS managers, medical directors, and frontline personnel improve cardiac arrest survival in their communities. Join the leaders for a course that will transform how you think about how EMS manages cardiac arrests.

8:00 am - 5:00 pm

8:00 am - 4:00 pm

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. Participants will enhance their understanding of the various procedures and the associated risks and benefits through the hands on practicum. The relevant review of the anatomy will include 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 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.

8:00 am - 9:30 am
