Medical Considerations for Technical Rescue

Friday, February 22nd, from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm

The purpose of this course is to introduce prehospital providers to confined space and high angle rescue in a hands on settings. Providers will be introduced to the confined space and high angle environments while applying skills and knowledge related to medical treatment of patients requiring specialized rescue. 

Technical rescues are challenging incidents that require a medically-focused response in order to ensure a successful outcome. Prehospital providers performing technical rescue operations will be faced with unique obstacles that are different from every day emergency medical calls. Examples of some of these obstacles include dark, austere environments, safety issues such as hazardous atmospheres, limited space, and prolonged extrication times. In this course, providers will develop an awareness level of knowledge regarding technical rescue and develop basic operations level knowledge and skills related to medical treatment of patients.
