Just the Basics: Pharm for the EMT

We review the indications, contraindications, side effects, and little-known trivia about SL Nitro, aspirin, Charcoal, Epi-Pen, Oxygen, Oral Glucose Gel and Albuterol. All medications that are currently approved for BLS administration by the National Registry (and a few that aren’t). Did you know?.. The same activated charcoal used for overdoses is also great for removing odor from cat litter? And it works the same way in your gut!

Man vs Wild

Lions, Tigers and Bears...wait...Okay maybe not that type of wildlife but there are several things that are necessary to know in order to treat patients who have decided to “rough it” in the great outdoors. Rather than discuss advanced interventions, we are going back to the basics and using common sense knowledge to treat a variety of environmental emergencies including hypothermia, hyperthermia, diving emergencies, bites and stings, altitude sickness and much more!
