PerfectCPR for Apple Watch

Metronome devices have been shown to improve the quality of compressions during CPR. This module reviews the importance of high quality CPR and provides a solution to optimize compression rate for those who have an Apple Watch. This free Apple Watch App, PerfectCPR, provides haptic feedback so the provider can accurately time their compressions with the best-practice rate that is reflected in the protocols.

Surgical Cricothyroidotomy (Bougie Assisted)

A surgical cricothyroidotomy is indicated by the 2017 NYS EMS collaborative protocols to be performed by paramedics when the patient cannot be adequately ventilated and oxygenated by any other method. In these “can’t intubate, can’t oxygenate” (CICO) situations, a rapid, effective surgical cricothyroidotomy may be lifesaving.  This module depicts a simple and effective technique for emergent field surgical cricothyroidotomy utilizing equipment commonly found on the ambulance.

Double Sequential Defibrillation

Double sequential defibrillation is a procedure that may be helpful in the treatment of refractory ventricular fibrillation (RVF) in the out of hospital environment. This module demonstrates the procedure of double sequential defibrillation which is included as a medical control consideration for instances in which ventricular fibrillation persists after five shocks. Further research will be required to determine the optimal treatment strategies for RVF. Double sequential defibrillation is not considered part of the minimum standard of care at this time. Nonetheless, providers will be instructed on how to properly perform this procedure in the event that a medical control order is granted for this treatment option.

Formal Debrief of Critical Patient Management Scenario (Critiques Scenario and Models Formal Call Review Sessions)

Previously, in episode 42, we demonstrated how debriefing can occur in an informal situation. In this video we model a more formal quality improvement session that involves the agency medical director and continuous quality improvement (CQI) director. We strongly believe that these sessions should be educational in nature and anything that requires “disciplinary” action should be handled via a different process entirely. This episode encompasses a critique of the “Management of the Critical Patient / RSI” scenario; episode 43.

Critical Patient Management with RSI

RSI is often regarded as the pinnacle of advanced life support skills. Indeed, this skill can be beneficial in the right circumstances. That said, like any advanced intervention, performing a particular skill must be done in the context of the overall situation. The procedure itself is fairly straightforward. The judgement, experience, and education of the provider dictate how he or she will manage the nuances of treating a critical patient. Expertise involves not only performing a skill correctly but performing the skill in the right situation at the right time, anticipating the potential complications before they occur, and mastering the basic skills that are requisite for advanced care.

Informal Debrief of Neonatal Resuscitation (Critiques Scenario and Models Informal Call Review)

Informal debriefing with your colleagues is an important part of continuous quality improvement and should be a regular part of your practice. In addition, being able to reflect on your own performance in a productive manner is an important skill to hone for personal growth. Fostering a culture that is supportive of these discussions allows providers to benefit from the experience and perspective of their colleagues. This video provides an example of how we would conduct such a debriefing in the context of the protocols and how we would address some of the issues and concerns that you may have identified regarding the patient care delivered in the previous two episodes.

Neonatal Resuscitation Simulation - NYS Collaborative

Uncomplicated delivery in the field is fairly straightforward. Unfortunately, things do not always go as planned. Thankfully, resuscitating a neonate in distress is a rare event but something that requires acute clinical acumen. This video depicts a newborn that is not responding to initial interventions. Review the neonatal resuscitation protocol along with this video. The next episode will depict an informal debrief of both this scenario as well as the OB field delivery scenario covered in the previous episode.

OB Field Delivery Simulation - NYS Collaborative 

Delivery of a neonate in the field environment poses a number of challenges. This video depicts a scenario that involves EMS field delivery. The delivery is fairly quick and uncomplicated but the neonate is in distress. The video covers the uncomplicated delivery process. Episode 47 will review complications of delivery and how they are managed by EMS in the context of the current protocols. The resuscitation of the neonate will be covered in the next episode.

Ep #36 Advanced GEMS - @NAEMT_ Beta Course #AGEMS

 

NAEMT’s groundbreaking Geriatric Education for Emergency Medical Services (GEMS) Advanced course builds on the GEMS core course, delving into more complex, realistic scenarios and the unique technology EMS practitioners are likely to encounter when assessing, treating, and transporting older adults.

-Highly interactive, immersive educational format focuses on integrating critical thinking into real world application.

-Topics covered include caring for and transporting patients on home ventilators, LVADs (left ventricular assist devices), tracheostomies, PICC lines/invasive lines and feeding tubes.

-Prepares EMS practitioners for the array of medical, mobility, psychosocial and communications issues found in older patients.

-Students are guided through a series of scenarios involving increasingly complex symptoms and situations.

Ep #35 All Hazards Disaster Response – @NAEMT_ Beta Course #AHDR

All Disasters are Local.  First responders, regardless of the type of incident, need to be prepared to respond to mass casualty events and disasters of varying types with changing conditions and hazards.  While the FEMA Incident Command Courses offer a primer on organizational structure of a response as well as insight into general operations at events, there is no course specifically aimed at prehospital providers which simultaneously codifies the medical knowledge required to care for critically ill and injured patients at a multitude of events.  More so, this course targets boots on the ground providers from EMTs, Paramedics as well as EMS Response & Rescue physicians and provides the necessary skills, knowledge and insight to integrate seamlessly within the overarching ICS framework from the bottom up.  This course focuses on the initial response to a wide range of possible events and is designed to scale perfectly to your operational area with topics including Structural Fires, Radiologic Events, Natural Disasters and critical Infrastructure Failure, Transportation events, Infectious Disease Outbreaks and of course Active Shooter Events.  There are a bevy of well honed exercised, drills and tabletops to keep the pace of the 8hr day brisk and engaging.

It was a sincere pleasure to lead a distinguished group of authors in developing this new course which we Beta’d for the very first time in New Orleans at #EMSWorldExpo16.  The official debut will be at @EMSTODAY conference in Salt Lake City Utah as a preconference on February 22nd 2017.  Hope to see you all there!
