#GMVEMSC: FW: Looking for Some Great Controllers and Evaluators - MCI Exercises

Thanks to everyone who responded to our exercise invitation.  I have room for only one more RTF crew, and one more EMS crew.  However, we also need controller/evaluators, simulation cell workers, and moulage artists for the exercise, and those personnel receive the same con ed credits at other exercise participants.  See below for how to sign up.

 

A major full scale exercise is coming up for our region on Sunday, August 25th, and we need evaluators, simulation cell personnel, moulage artists, and role-players (victims)!  GDAHA, MMRS, and Kettering Health Network are sponsoring the “Dawn of a New Day” mass casualty incident (MCI) exercise involving terrorism, an active shooter incident, and an IED. 

  • Locations will include Soin Medical Center, Greene Memorial Hospital, and the Wright-Patt Credit Union building on Pentagon Blvd., Beavercreek.  Exercise play will begin at 1:00 PM on Sunday, August 25th, and evaluators will need to arrive by Noon.   To sign up as an Evaluator or Simulation Center worker for the Soin/Greene exercise, click here: 

·         Soin Controller/Evaluator Sign-up: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/18EContrEval

 

  •  The exercise will end at approximately 3:30 PM.
  • Moulage artists should simply email me.
  • If you have someone who would like to sign up as a  victim, the link for that is https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/18EDawnVic

#GMVEMSC Training: FW: AMIODARONE SHORTAGE JITSO

Per Dr. Marriott, GMVEMSC Medical Director and Chair, Region 3 RPAB:

Due to a nationwide shortage of Amiodarone, some GMVEMSC drug bags MAY NOT contain Amiodarone now or in the future. In those circumstances ONLY, this JITSO is to be followed authorizing use of Lidocaine as below. Lidocaine infusions will not be utilized. As always, if there are concerns, contact Medical Control.

·       {12-lead EKG}

·       Consider treatable causes.

A     If patient converts with ROSC from a ventricular arrhythmia and no anti-arrhythmic has been given, then administer Amiodarone 150 mg in 250 ml NS, IV over 10 minutes using 60 drop/ml tubing.

Unstable:

            An unstable patient is defined as a patient who is hypotensive or unconscious when the hypotension or altered mental status is thought to be due to the patient’s tachycardia.
