Saturday, June 12, 2010 - 3:30-5 pm (1 hr 30 min)

 

With evidence based medicine becoming a new standard in EMS, how do we change our protocols on things such as spinal immobilization that have been the standard of care without being proven as the best patient practice.  Dr. Smith examines Selective Spinal Immobilization protocols and how they should be incorporated into EMS.

 

1. Discuss standard of care and current protocols regarding spine injuries

2. Review research on spine injuries and evaluation standards

3. How to implement selective spinal immobilization protocols in your system
