Today’s world of terrorism, the actions of unstable people, and the dangerous impulses of friends and relatives are real and threaten first responders and citizens alike.

Massive bleeding from any cause, but particularly from an active shooter or explosive event where a response is delayed can result in death. Similar to how the general public learns and performs CPR, first responders and lay-persons must learn proper bleeding control techniques, including how to use their hands, dressings, and tourniquets.

However, anyone at the scene can act as an immediate responder and save lives if they know what to do. Training coincides with policy directive for national preparedness (Presidential Policy Directive 8), which targets preparedness as a shared responsibility of the government, the private and nonprofit sectors, as well as individual citizens.

Bleeding Control (BCON) is an initiative of the American College of Surgeons and the Hartford Consensus and contains diagrams, news, videos, and other resources contributed by a variety of other private and nonprofit partners to help prepare law enforcement, EMS, and Fire Departments.

This training will better prepare Essex County Law Enforcement with the “what-to-do” during an act of terrorism, active shooter, explosion, etc. until EMS arrives.  Students will have the opportunity to learn the basic principles of bleeding control, and use of control devices such as; pressure dressings, hemostatic dressings, tourniquets, and more.

At the conclusion of the course attendees will have a greater understanding of basic bleeding control techniques. Each officer attending the training will receive an IFAK Kits (Individual First Aid Kit) that contains the materials covered in the course to “stop-the-bleed”. 

An email will be sent to you after successfully completing the registration with; course date, time, and location. Cancellations require a 48 hour notice.

All of our courses are approved by American Association of Respiratory Care and Pennsylvania State Nursing Association for Continuing Education Credits which is required for licensure renewal.

 

TOPICS:

Emergency Management: Keeping the TJC and CMS Happy

The ability to deliver safe and reliable patient care in the midst of a disaster, whether natural or an act of terrorism requires active planning and preparedness. Mr. Dennis Boos who is an expert in this area will go over the importance of planning, managing and preparing for the unthinkable through the eyes of Joint Commission guidelines. Preparing the whole health care team through pre-planned events to evaluate team response keeps CMS and TJC in our side.

 

Opioid Abuse Toolkit: Resources for New Jersey Communities - 2017

Raising awareness of the increasing opioid epidemic, one of the biggest drug problems facing the US today, Prof. Kathy Smith-Wenning who is an expert and a well-known anthropologist will discuss the strategies for opioid over-dose, survival, treatment options and the roots to recovery from opioid addiction.

 

Pulmonary Changes during Pregnancy

In pregnancy, respiratory physiology is altered by physical and hormonal changes that can profoundly alter ventilatory drive. The cardiac output also increases by about 30-45% by the early second trimester. Dr. Keith Guevarra, one of the chief pulmonologists at UH will discuss the anatomical and physiological changes, causes of respiratory failure and the management techniques during pregnancy. 

 

Reducing the Risk of SIDS and Other Sleep-Related Infant Deaths

Approximately 3500 infants die annually in the United States from sleep-related infant deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Dr. Barbara Ostfeld, Program Director, the SIDS Center of NJ will discuss the extent of unexpected sudden infant deaths and what impact they have on the community. She will emphasize the importance of community awareness, nursing’s role and the application of the American Academy of Pediatrics safe infant sleep guidelines.

 

An Overview of Research for RT's & RN’s to Enhance Patient Safety

Patient safety has become a major concern of the general public in recent years. Dr. Albert Heuer, who is an expert in this field will collate the history and evolution of medical research, define major terminology, describe various research designs, offer suggestions on how to locate, evaluate and review medical research and synthesize what is learned to enhance patient safety and clinical effectiveness.

 

Infection Control Practices—2017

Guidance outlining the core practices that are accepted standards of care in the prevention of infection for safe health care delivery in all settings. Mr. Terrence Shenfield will describe the role of isolation in preventing spread of certain infections with examples and state the significance of correct sequence of donning and doffing PPE.

 

Occupational Asthma

Occupational Asthma has become the most common work-related lung disease in developed countries. Up to 15% of asthma cases in the United States may be job-related. Dr. Madhuri Singal, an inhalation toxicologist will bring new insight on how to identify occupational asthma in clinical settings. Dr. Singal will help us to understand the diagnostic procedures as well as clinical and industrial regulations to develop a respiratory health and safety surveillance program.

Bleeding Control - Basic 

Many civilians have expressed interest in taking a bleeding control training course that would empower them to immediately assist victims of active shooter and other intentional mass casualty events at the point of wounding, according to results of a new national poll published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons. Furthermore, the vast majority of civilians support training and equipping police officers to perform severe bleeding control on victims as soon as possible rather than wait for emergency medical services (EMS) personnel to arrive on the scene. There’s also strong public support for putting bleeding control kits in public places where large crowds gather, similar to the way that automatic external defibrillators are now found in airports and shopping malls for use by responders who have undergone cardiopulmonary resuscitation training.

Who can respond and control bleeding?

In addition to training law enforcement officers in bleeding control and instantly providing them with equipment to do so, emergency medical service personnel also need quicker access to the wounded. However, another key element calls for using civilian bystanders as immediate responders who perform external bleeding control for victims at the point of wounding before the arrival of professional responders. This element from the Hartford Consensus is at the core of the “Stop the Bleed” campaign by the Department of Homeland Security through the National Security Council.
