Remote and Expedition Medicine Class

Posted Dec 02 2011 12:00am

Adventure Doc Ambulance

Adventure Doc is busy preparing for an upcoming class on remote and expedition medicine for some of our new paramedics. The class is a bit modified for our own crew and will be focusing on the following topics for the first block of education:

  • Suture Skills and Wound Care (suture, staple, glue and wound care)
  • Tropical Medicine Basics (malaria, dengue, yellow fever, helminthes, leptospirosis and leishmaniasis)
  • Environmental Medicine (heat, cold, altitude and motion sickness)
  • Medical Kit Construction (case based scenarios)
  • Field Water Disinfection (pathology, methods, storage and pitfalls)
  • Adventure Doc Standing Orders and Treatment Protocols
  • Chartwork, Cas-Evacs, Documentation and Trip Deployment
  • Pharmacology Basics (antibiotic basics, pain management, altitude and diarrhea)
  • Traveler’s Diarrhea (diagnosis, treatment, management and prevention)

While there are many more classes and training modules that are required to learn prior to accompanying our travelers and adventurers in the field, these classes and modules make up the core foundation of skills and knowledge. The classroom lectures are combined with a lot of hands on training of wound closure on tissue models, medical equipment familiarity and skill stations. Detailed course materials will also be provided for home study and more detailed mastery of these subjects.
