Extrication and EMS: Coordinating Team Delivery of Critical Care

Good vehicle extrication demands a unique collaboration between rescue and emergency medical personnel. The objectives are to increase situational awareness and improve your strategic and tactical plans for extrication by incorporating key medical information in the decision-making process. To save a victim (not just chop up a vehicle), you need command, coordination, communication, and care.

A real-world approach incorporates advanced life support considerations in the extrication strategy and shows how basic life support first responders can manage quickly and effectively a great deal of critical trauma care. Students learn how to deliver immediate life-saving treatment more safely and efficiently, reduce time from patient contact to patient surgery, and improve the lives of the people they are protecting.
