THIS CLASS HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE SCHEDULE*
Presented by: OC FOOLS with instruction by Mark Gregory, Captain; FDNY
Machinery Entrapments occur all across the United States and Canada. Is your department capable of handling one? The objectives of this program are to provide responders with the knowledge to help manage incidents involving the extrication of patients from various types of machinery. Both common machinery and machinery specific to locations within your response area will be discussed. This is a highly specialized skill set and caring for victims/patients entrapped in machinery requires providers to be trained in specific treatment modalities and the possible complications that may arise. Tool selection, patient stabilization techniques, and crush injury syndrome will be discussed as well as several actual case studies.
