When the Sh** Hits the Fan, You Can Keep Your Cool if You Know What to Do

In the age of the internet, there are plenty of online first aid courses for you to choose from. These will teach you all the same things, but you won’t get to practice those skills to get them right.   

Here, you will learn to reach the same goal – saving a life – in a way that you won’t need to practice in class to get it right.   

Calling for an ambulance is always step one, but what then? When every second count, you can make the difference between your loved one making it in (relatively) good shape onto the ambulance, or deteriorating catastrophically before help has even arrived.   

If you want to learn what to do when things go wrong, check out this course.

Content and Overview   

We designed this first aid course so that you can learn crucial skills like CPR without practicing them in class. You don’t need any prior knowledge to take this course.   

We cover the most common life-threatening emergencies, from the generic “there’s someone lying on the ground, is he unconscious?” to “that car hit a woman in the crosswalk, I think she’s still breathing!”   

You will learn not only what to do in different types of emergencies, but also how to help different types of people. For example, you can’t do CPR on babies the same way you do on adults, the Heimlich maneuver is different for pregnant women, and not everyone can be saved from a heart attack using aspirin.   

We’ve also included some bonus content:

 

  • Info on the leading causes of death in the world – heart attacks and strokes – why they happen, how you can recognize them, and what you should do when they happen.

  • The important guideline you should follow in case of a fire, as well as tips on how you can prevent the fire altogether.

Finally, we’ve boiled everything down to the exact steps you need to remember for each emergency situation, and put them all in the downloadable Study Manual for you to keep and refer back to whenever you want or need to. Now you’re ready to roll.    Please support our cause by spreading this course!

Every penny collected from this course is going back to empowering underprivileged youth in the developing world.

Fall Prevention and Management in Emergency Medical Services

Doctoral Capstone Project

Created by Keli Zemke - EMT/Firefighter and Doctoral Occupational Therapy Student

"]

Students: 113, Price: Free

In this presentation you will learn the process I followed to implement a fall prevention and management protocol, what the protocol entailed, and how I advocated for geriatric fall patients, my EMS family, and the Occupational therapy profession all in one project.

Currently there is no intervention or follow up in place that ems can utilize for repeat callers for falls to prevent future falls, which presents a need to reduce ems resources being utilized for these types of calls and develop a better system for fall prevention. I also found in my research that falls increase with age, women tend to fall more than men, and most falls occur inside of the home. Interestingly, urban areas have the highest number of falls, but rural areas are more likely to transport for fall calls. At scene intervention, such as leaving a handout with the patients and/or their family about preventability of falls has shown to be benifical. These handouts usually include information about fall prevention and programs located in their community. These finding led me to believe that the need for home and independent living evaluations conducted by a professional are important. Through this capstone, I am advocating for the use of occupational therapists to address these issues.
