Severe burn preparedness


This webinar contains two presentations related to severe burns:

The first, by MICA flight paramedic Cat Mackay, will discuss two burns case studies to highlight the importance of preparedness in paramedicine and pre-hospital practice, when you never know what it is you're actually preparing for.

The second, by MICA flight paramedic educator Nick Roder, speaks to the widening scope of practice for the ICP to capture patient cohorts that lie at the fringes of well-defined research that supports pre-hospital RSI. He will discuss a patient with airways-burns to understand if we are applying best practice in this low frequency, high acuity trauma.
