  • Presenter: Bill Elder of Elder Technical Rescue

Appropriate treatment started during a technical rescue will minimize pain and suffering and possibly save the individual’s life. This class will start with a review of medical considerations pertaining to the rescuer and conclude with considerations for patient care in the technical rescue environment. This class is highly recommended for both EMS trained and non-EMS trained rescuers.
