Area first responders and emergency management personnel participated in the 2016 EMS Conference last week at UNM-Los Alamos.
Classic Air Medical and Los Alamos Medical Center sponsored the event, which included classes, lectures and training Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Topics included the physiology of life and death; accident scene and assessment; airway issues; breathing, ventilation and oxygenation; circulation, hemorrhage and shock; disability and exposure, child abuse; pediatric transport; and high performance CPR.
A broad variety of speakers presented talks and training at the conference including Dr. Mike Hudson. Hudson is the medical director at Classic Air Medical. Saturday afternoon during his talk, Hudson presented a number of scenarios involving the symptoms of patients. He asked audience members for their opinions as to what the diagnosis might be. They answered correctly.
“Smart people are easy to teach,” Hudson told the local first responders.
Participants received CME Certificates upon completion of the conference.
