Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!  Triage for Airplane Crashes

Instructor:  Ken Bouvier

This 2.5 hour Pre-Conference Workshop will help Prehospital Care Practitioners understand how perform triage at a plane crash. Using this unique airplane fuselage participants, will have the opportunity to actually triage 12 patients at the Utah Fire Academy.
Triage is the process of determining the priority of patients’ treatments based on the severity of their condition.  This rations patient treatment efficiently when resources are insufficient for all to be treated immediately.
Indoor we will discuss the dangers of responding to an airplane crash, safety at the scene, Triage Tags, Ribbons & Tarps, the use of a causality collection point and Incident Command.  Outdoor the class will divide up into teams where each team will have the opportunity to triage 12 patients using tags, ribbons and move all of the patients to the causality collection point and place them on the proper color triage tarp.  This workshop will conclude with a brief “Hot Wash Discussion” about what went well and where we can improve our response.

Touchy Feely!  Hands-On Patient Assessment

Instructor:  Jon Politis

This is a “hands on” workshop teaching the finer  points  of  physical assessment and clinically focused surface anatomy. Starting at the head, we go all the way to the toes and learn how to find structures like the cricothyroid membrane, angle of Louis, the lung bases . . . often talked about, but few can really locate. Even highly experienced providers walk away amazed at what they have learned to sharpen their assessment.

Teleflex Procedural Cadaver Lab

Instructor:  TBA

Participants will enhance their understanding using multiple learning modalities including didactic and hands-on practice on cadaveric specimens and simulations aids.  Case study and patient care scenarios are designed to provide attendees with an opportunity to apply the program content to simulated clinical practice.  The content is designed to provide attendees with the information necessary to make well informed decisions regarding optimal patient care.

Save A Cop! Tactical Medicine, LEO, EMS, and Military

Instructor:  Bill Justice, et al.

This course is designed for (and taught by) law enforcement professionals to enhance self-aid and buddy-aid in a high-risk medical situation. This program focuses on the “nuts and bolts” of immediate trauma care for the EMS provider, street cop, deputy, trooper, border guard, private security or any other law enforcement operator.
The program utilizes science-based medicine guidelines, which follow the current Trauma Casualty Care Course (TCCC) adopted by all military forces. The military identified the three most common “correctable” causes of death from the battlefield: 1) uncontrolled bleeding, 2) chest trauma, and 3) airway complications, specifically, in that order. Interestingly, law enforcement critical injuries and deaths fall into the same categories.
New and improved methods of intervention will be discussed and demonstrated by some of the leading national educators in tactical trauma management. Hands-on skill stations utilizing tourniquets, hemostatics (blood stoppers), pressure dressings, chest seals and evacuation techniques of a downed officer will be presented by user-friendly instructors who understand the business.  This hands-on workshop will take you into the “warm zone” and allow you to put your training to work.  You don’t want to miss this!
