Edutainment with Bob Page
Wed, April 19, 2017, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM EDT
Bob Page started his Multi-Lead MedicsTM philosphy in 1998 which has expanded into a series of courses that explain advanced ECG (12 lead) and patient assessment concepts in an easy to understand and unconditional way. This nationally acclaimed course has been adopted by the Critical Care ParamedicTM Course curriculum at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Stethoscopy for "Dummies" - How much did you pay for your stethoscope? How much training did you get on how to use it? In this session, participants are provided down to earth "for dummies" information on various types of stethoscopes and how to use them to get the most of our patient assessment. New and improved methods and techniques are presented and lung and heart sounds are also played aloud so all participants can hear the sounds rather than hear a "description" of the sound.
Putting the Shoe on the Other Foot: Customer Service for EMS Professionals - Everyone talks about the need for improving customer service. Most customer service talks are by business professionals and sales people designed to increase profits. This talk takes the concepts of customer service and applies them to the Emergency Medical Field. Bob uses healthy doses of humor and real life EMS examples of customer service to make the point.
"Are You Ready For Tachycardia?" - The Guidelines for Tachycardia have made dramatic changes from what we were trained to do. Update classes only briefly touch on the subject and do not come close to preparing you for these changes. Ageless drugs we counted on were eliminated and others take their place. Many providers are unfamiliar with how to use these new drugs. Furthermore, a 12 leadECG is now indicated to determine the rhythm before you proceed. To follow the new algorithm correctly, knowledge not included in the course or the EMS curricula for that matter is needed. Come join ECG Expert Bob Page as he breaks down the changes and explains in a fun, interactive program, how to prepare yourself for the new tachycardia!
This event is sponsored by the St. Luke's University Health Network Heart and Vascular Center specifically for EMS providers.
