STOP The Bleed

The Bleeding Control Basic (B-Con) Course or “STOP the Bleed” is designed for individuals who have little or no medical training but who may be called upon as immediate responders to provide initial trauma care and bleeding control to a victim of traumatic injury prior to the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS) or in an austere environment. The B-Con course is a joint product of the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma and the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians’ Prehospital Trauma Life Support. Each student will be provided with a Bleeding Control Kit.

Call Management for Difficult Airway

The Call Management for Difficult Airway class is designed to give pre-hospital personnel the education and confidence they need to effectively and efficiently manage virtually any airway issue they may encounter. This fast paced course takes students from a basic review to video laryngoscopy and SALAD in 8 hours. The Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination (S.A.L.A.D.) simulator uses suction to enhance first pass success-laryngoscopy (FPS-L) with a non-anesthetized patient in active emesis. Students will receive short lectures followed by hands on practice throughout the class. All levels of EMS provider will benefit from this class. If you are experienced or new to EMS this course will take you to the next level and then some. Hands on with airway trainers, SIM and SALAD manikins allow instructors to create realistic scenarios. Most students average at least 30 intubations per class.
