Caesars Atlantic City
Did you know that most of the victims in a mass casualty or active shooting event die as a result of bleeding out at the scene? Research has demonstrated that controlling bleeding as soon as possible after trauma saves lives. As a physician, you are just as likely to find yourself in the role of an immediate responder as a non-physician, simply because you happen to be in the wrong place at a bad time. However, unlike non-physicians, it is assumed that you will have the ability to take a leadership role in the crisis. Emergency bleeding control is probably not the type of training you received in medical school or residency; in fact unless you already ride on an ambulance as a first responder, you may never have learned how to stop a catastrophic bleed.
NJAFP is working with the University Hospital EMS team to bring you an experiential, hands-on course at Caesars Atlantic City, in conjunction with the NJAFP 2018 Scientific Assembly. This session is designed to train you as an immediate responder by teaching the basic principles to stop bleeding and control hemorrhage before the arrival of traditional first responders. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to save a life.
Registration is included with when you register for the Scientific Assembly.
