Lodestone is pleased to offer this 2-day course hosted by Avenues: The World School
Leading trips to remote locations, particularly in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC) necessitates an aggressive medical strategy. Complement your travel assistance provider support and local resources with well-trained trip-leaders. No matter what the incident, serious or not, managing the medical response begins with hands-on assessment and first aid.
This is a travel medicine course built over a wilderness first aid chassis. There are a number of full lectures reinforced by Patient Assessment System (PAS) drills and debriefs. All scenarios will be internationally based (as opposed to wilderness activity based) and will include attendant decision making for accessing available medical care. Besides basic life support and CPR, the curriculum includes some advanced scope of practice protocols: cessation of CPR after 30 minutes, and the administration of epinephrine for anaphylaxis. Certifications awarded by Wilderness Medical Associates International.
