2022 Advanced Topics in Prehospital Care Seminar

Dillon, CO US
November 11, 2022

2022 Advanced Topics in Prehospital Care Seminar is a day of live learning offered as part of the 2022 Annual Colorado State EMS Conference. This conference continues to build on its impressive tradition of superb EMS education in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. This is the premier event where EMS professionals, agency managers and administrators, EMS instructors, medical directors and allied professionals learn about trends and techniques that enhance patient care and agency operations. 

Trauma remains one of the leading causes of death in our population, especially among those < 45 years old. Life saving interventions which could be performed in the field by prehospital personnel could reduce morbidity and mortality in this population. Will be discussing cutting edge trauma care in the prehospital setting including finger thoracostomy, whole blood use and REBOA use. These are all topics which have been used in the military settings to great benefit and are being increasingly deployed in the Emergency Departments. We will explore the utility of deploying these treatments in the prehospital setting.
