The course presents the three phases of tactical care: Direct Threat Care that is rendered while under attack or in adverse conditions. Indirect Threat Care that is rendered while the threat has been suppressed, but may resurface at any point. Evacuation Care that is rendered while the casualty is being evacuated from the incident site. The 16 hour classroom course covers the following topics.: Hemorrhage control; Surgical airway control and needle decompression; Strategies for treating wounded responders in threatening environments; Caring for pediatric patients and Techniques for dragging and carrying victims to safety. **9/19: 8 am - 5 pm,

It Ain’t Easy Being Wheezy: Pediatric Status Asthmaticus Instructor: 9/21/2018

Chris Ebright 08:00 – 09:15

BHS Auditorium

Severe asthma is becoming more prevalent in American children, and mortality has risen sharply in the past decade. Any EMS professional may be faced with the asthmatic child in severe respiratory distress or impending respiratory failure that has not been relieved with their usual bronchodilator therapy. These scary patients need more aggressive treatment than what is usually required, and this discussion will show you how to do just that at the basic and advanced levels of care. 1.25 Hours: Special Considerations, Pediatrics

Basic Vehicle Extrication, Day 1 Instructor:

When a Stroke Really Isn’t a Stroke

LN Curtis

9/21/2019 08:00 – 17:00 Aztec Auto Salvage This course provides basic hands-on training for fire and rescue personnel in size-up, stabilization, hazard control, patient access, disentanglement and scene control techniques at automobile accidents. Emphasis is placed on proper choice, placement and use of equipment. From hand tools such as bars and hack saws, to electric tools such as nibblers and recip saws, to air powered tools like air chisels and impact wrenches, to heavy hydraulic tools – all are employed depending on local capabilities. NOTE: Protective Clothing Required -- Participants must furnish approved helmet, fire boots or leather safety boots, eye protection, gloves, coveralls or turnout gear for class. 8 Hours: Preparatory and Operations

Chris Ebright 09:30 - 10;45

BHS Auditorium

The diagnosis of acute ischemic stroke is often straightforward. The sudden onset of a focal neurologic deficit with a common presentation - such as hemiparesis, facial weakness and aphasia - identifies a common syndrome of acute stroke. But what if the patient presentation isn’t that cut and dry? Differential diagnostic problems remain because there are several subtypes of stroke and also because some non-vascular disorders may have clinical pictures that appear identical to strokes. This presentation will address these “mimics” as well as other considerations during your assessment of this patient who ‘didn’t read the textbook’. 1.25 Hours: Cardiovascular Emergencies

Leaders Intent in the Culture of Safety Instructor: 9/21/2018:

Tom Aurnhammer 09:30 - 10:45

BHS Classroom # ________

In fast-moving, dynamic situations, strategic incident commanders cannot always incorporate new information into a formal planning process and redirect resources within a reasonable timeframe. The leader’s intent is a concise statement that outlines what task level company officers must know to be successful for a given assignment. The intent communicates three essential pieces of information: what is the task, what is the purpose, and what should the end state look like. While organizational culture can sometimes be difficult to define, it is the driving force behind how we operate as fire departments. Is the culture of the fire service a major contributor to line-of-duty deaths? The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s Life Safety Initiative #1 reads in part, “Define and advocate the need for a cultural change within the fire service relating to safety…” The creation of a positive safety culture within our organizations, incorporated into a leader’s intent, can influence firefighter safety behaviors by providing motivation and awareness, resulting in safer fireground operations. 1.25 Hours: Preparatory / Operations


The Night Joe’s Crab Shack Almost changed Everything Instructor: Chris Ebright 9/21/2019 11:00 – 12:00 BHS Auditorium This presentation explains and follows the development of the pathophysiology, signs, symptoms and treatment of a severe anaphylactic reaction. This casestudy shows how an allergic reaction develops into an anaphylactic presentation in real time with real events. Audience participation will help demonstrate the components of the immune system and the events of a normal immune response. Additionally, the pathophysiology of anaphylaxis is also demonstrated and how the various treatments that are rendered actually work to reverse this acute overthe-top reaction. All of the actual events explained during this case-study are correlated with the underlying pathophysiology of the immune response to help the EMS professional better understand the development of anaphylaxis and its management. 1 Hour: Medical Emergencies

Lunch Provided by: FIREHOUSE subs

Trachs and Tubes and Shunts, Oh My! Technology for Special Needs Children Instructor: 9/21/2019

Chris Ebright 14:30 - 15:45

BHS Auditorium

Most EMS training teaches us how to deal with the “average” patient. Due to advances in medical technology and more plentiful support services, children who have suffered critical injuries and those with unique disease states are being cared for at home more than ever. This presentation will explain the most common equipment and technology that pre-hospital providers will encounter when caring for these patients. 1.25 Hour: Special Considerations I-40 Greyhound Bus Crash - Lessons Learned - Pt. 1 Instructor:

Jason Carlisle, Tim Berry

9/21/2019 14:30 – 15:45 BHS Classroom # _______ It’s the call we all dread, the call which makes ALL our pulses quicken… “Greyhound Bus Crash, I-40, unknown mile marker, numerous patients, attempting to get further information.” This happened in McKinley County and will present a multi-discipline response to the event and recovery; from the perspectives of OEM, Fire, EMS, Hospital and OMI. Join the presentation for what went well as well as Lessons Learned, you can take home to your organization, ~ this could happen ANYWHERE!!! 1.25 Hour: Trauma Emergencies

Smiling Death Instructor: 9/21/2019

Chris Ebright 13:00 - 14:15

BHS Auditorium

When responding to an entrapment situation, EMS should be prepared to manage a patient with crush syndrome. Having your patient die moments after being freed is a tragic end to a well-executed rescue. EMS providers as part of these teams can reduce the chances of this through recognition of proper pretreatment prior to extrication. Come listen to this presentation and find out how. 1.25 Hour: Trauma Emergencies

Instructor: 9/21/2019

Chris Ebright 16:00 - 17:00

BHS Auditorium

One time or another, we take the call for a patient that we know all too well. Sometimes it’s a family member, a friend, and in one terrible instance - a coworker. Based on an actual EMS call, this presentation correlates real timeline history, events, and preventative treatments for a fellow colleague with the underlying pathophysiology of a pulmonary embolism. Various signs, predisposing risk factors and origins of emboli formation are all tied together to give a global perspective of the acute and, in this case, fatal event that shocked and stunned an entire EMS service. 1 Hour: Medical Emergencies

Katherine Schafer

9/22/2019 08:00 – 09:45 BHS Auditorium The New Mexico EMS for children program is a federally funded initiative in existence in NM since 1996 that raises awareness about the need to improve and expand specialized care for children in the prehospital and acute care settings. As part of this program, we will be discussing EMS and child passenger safety by exploring a variety of restraint systems using scenarios, how to transport children who are not patients, and sharing updated guidelines and best practices regarding the safe transport of children in the prehospital setting 2 Hours: Special Considerations, Pediatrics

Stop the Bleed, Train the Trainer Instructors:

Rescue Tactics and Training

9/22/2019 08:00 - 12:00 BHS Classroom # _______ Today we live in a world where terrorism, the actions of unstable people, and the dangerous impulses of friends and relatives are very real and becoming increasingly more frequent. Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, the public must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets. Victims can quickly die from uncontrolled bleeding, within five to 10 minutes. However, anyone at the scene can act as immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do. The only thing more tragic than a death from bleeding, is a death that could have been prevented. This class is open to the public (tell your teacher friends, pastors, business colleagues) The first part of the course is learning the process of ‘Stop the Bleed’ and the second is to become a Trainer – take it out to your schools, churches and businesses and teach others! This class is FREE! Don't miss this tremendous opportunity to improve survival rates during a bleeding emergency. Consider taking this class if you would like to train your communities at an Open House, or at a church function, for Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts - the venues are limitless and the more people we can train, the more lives we can save! 4 Hours: Trauma Emergencies Pediatric Preparedness in the hospital and EMS setting Instructor:

Rachel Goodman

9/22/2019

10:00 - 12:00

BHS Auditorium

In this discussion, we will explore how the New Mexico EMS for Children program is improving the quality of emergency care for children by facilitating high-quality infant, child and adolescent emergency medical education and pediatric-specific initiatives including the coordination of pediatric emergency care for healthcare providers who respond to and treat this population so vital to our state's future. Pediatric patients constitute a small, but unique percentage of EMS transports. This is generally a good thing and demonstrates how rare pediatric emergencies are, as well as how injury prevention and vaccination programs have ensured a healthy pediatric population. An unintended consequence is that EMS does not have the same familiarity with pediatric emergency care as it does with adult emergency medical care even though 25 percent of the population is pediatric. An ill or injured child has special needs often requiring healthcare professionals to use different resources and skills. 2 Hours: Special Considerations, Pediatrics
