 B-Con

  • Bleeding Control for the Injured
  • This course was developed by NAEMT's PHTLS Committee to increase collaboration between law enforcement, the fire service and EMS in responding to active shooter/IED/mass casualty events.

    • Explain the rationale for early use of a tourniquet for life-threatening extremity bleeding.
    • Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg.

  • The overall goal of the course is to improve the quality of care provided to patients who suffer a cardiac arrest or other cardiopulmonary emergency.
  • Students enhance their skills in the treatment of cardiac arrest and peri-arrest patients through active participation in a series of planned simulated cardiac and respiratory emergency scenarios, which are designed to reinforce the core concepts of emergency cardiovascular care. 
  • ACLS is an advanced, instructor-led classroom course that highlights the importance of team dynamics and communication, systems of care and immediate post-cardiac-arrest care. It also covers airway management and related pharmacology.
  • In this course, skills are taught in large, group sessions and small, group learning and testing stations where case-based scenarios are presented.
