Oftentimes we talk about provider rehabilitation only during times of extended operations such as with structure fires. However with the arrival of summer, working on the hot blacktop at the scene of an MVC or during a cardiac arrest in a hot environment can quickly lead to heat-related illness and/or injury.
Join Mike Mcevoy, Russell Stine, Jeremiah Bush, Dr. Jeff Myers, Steve Murphy, and Kyle David Bates as they discuss essentially how not to end up on the business end of an IV catheter while working at any scene during warm weather.
This week’s objectives the listener will be able to:
- Define REHABilitation and PREHABilitation;
- Defend the importance of Rehab and Prehab;
- Perform a self-hydration assessment and care;
- Identify situations when rehabilitation may be necessary.
