Take Care of My Baby! The Red Warning Signs of Trouble.
Charles  (Chuck) McSweeney
During this dynamic discussion, we will talk about the anatomic differences between children and adults and
identify the “Red Warning Signs of Trouble” while assessing and taking care of kids. The healthcare provider
must be aware and on their toes to prevent cardio-pulmonary arrest in our smaller patient populations.

 

Stuck in the Muck! Crush Injuries, Rhabdomyolysis and Lessons Learned
Charles (Chuck) McSweeney
We will take the audience on the call of a lifetime with an unexpected turn of events. What could have been
a simplistic scene becomes a complicated and unimaginable need for resources. This lecture focuses on crush
injuries and their complications, mainly focusing on rhabdomyolysis and current trends in treatment through a
case study.

 

Elements of the Effective Employee Handbook
Jennifer Somers
The Employee Handbook is the employer’s key tool in communicating policies and work rules to employees. It
can be used to orient new employees, maintain consistency among supervisors and spell out workplace
policies. It is also one of the first documents the court will review in any employee legal issue. The Employee
Handbook needs be positive, inclusive and current. When is the last time yours was updated? Attendees will
learn guidelines for developing their handbook, along with a review of handbook do’s and don’ts.

 

Tie them up; tie them down (just not face down)
Jennifer Somers
EMS crews are expected to be able to handle patients in various encounters including a patient exhibiting
violent behavior. In this seminar, EMTs will be educated on recognizing potential violent behavior. EMTs will
learn de-escalation techniques, and what to do if de-escalation fails. Breathing
physiology, the impact of restraint on breathing and the risk of positional asphyxia
will be reviewed. The importance of documentation will also be examined.
