Search and Rescue Medical Kits
Wilderness Medicine Conference - WMS 25th Anniversary & Annual Meeting

Snowmass Conference Center (Adjacent to Silvertree Hotel)
Snowmass, CO

This workshop is geared toward helping participants design their own medical kits.  The basic principles of medical kit preparation will be discussed (such as size of group, terrain, remoteness of area, skill level of providers, etc.).  A search and rescue medical kit that is currently being used by Dr. Smith will serve as the center of discussion.  There will be a hands-on portion to expose students to new EMS and other medical technologies that can be taken to the wilderness.
