Asthma In The PreHospital Setting

Effective treatment of an asthmatic requires an understanding of the physiologic causes of asthma and the patient’s severity.  Pre-hospital care providers who can gauge the severity of asthma and deliver the appropriate treatment will be more effective in treating asthmatics. We were joined by Steven Kanarian of LaGuardia Community College Paramedic Program on this session. He covered various elements such as:

Physiology of asthma
Asthma triggers
The importance of understanding the elements of HPI
Assessment of the asthma patient in the pre-hospital setting
Keys to early asthma recognition
Pre-hospital treatment plans, what should yours be?

Both new and experienced providers will have deeper understanding of the causes, diagnosis and treatment of asthma upon completion of this webinar.

The handouts and Certificate of Completion are in a secure zip folder below the video. Included in that folder is also the MP3 of the session. (more…)
