After attending a lecture on medical emergencies, you feel like you’re ready to handle whatever comes your way. Or do you? Knowing what medications to have in your emergency drug kit is very different than knowing how to administer them. How many medications in your kit have you stared at and said, “I hope I never have to use this?” This two-hour long class reviews the indications, contraindications, side effects and pharmacokinetics of the medications that must be in your drug kit.
The hands-on portion will give you practice in dosing for adults and children, drawing medication from an ampule and vial, and administering intramuscular injections. You will also learn how to save hundreds of dollars every year in medications just by being able to perform these skills.
Erik is a high school science teacher and veteran paramedic with over 20 years of experience working in the 911 system. He has experience training both EMTs and Paramedics for the Suffolk County Department of Health Emergency Medical Services Division and has trained hundreds of dentists in performing CPR and using their AEDs and drug kits.
