LREMS offers numerous Continuing Education opportunities to our medics as well as EMS Professionals not affiliated with LREMS. All classes are certified by the Georgia State Office of EMS to receive CEUs and are free of charge for LREMS Medics; all others are required to pay a nominal fee.
Starting with the basics of anatomy, this class will provide the student with a thorough understanding of the heart and a unique way of learning STEMI. Identifying STEMI has been the biggest change in EMS in the last 20 years and paramedics are now the experts in determining acute myocardial infarctions. Upon completing this class you will have confidence in reading a 12 Lead.
STEMI Recognition, Mimics and Imitators
Most medics and nurses are great at identifying ST elevation but not so great at identifying STEMI. Building on the previous 12 Lead Interpretation class the student will learn about other causes of ST elevation and ST depression and the treatment modalities associated with them. This class includes case studies in the catheterization labs showing the surgical procedures of PCI.
Beginning with respiratory anatomy, this class teaches the importance capnography using real lungs to demonstrate ventilation, not only in cardiac arrest, but for numerous other situations (head trauma, asthma, pulmonary embolism, sepsis, DKA, tricyclic and opiate overdose, ventilated patients) where base vital signs cannot give the provider enough information. This hands-on course shows the benefit of using PEEP during resuscitation and what the waveforms are telling us.
EZ-IO for the Humerus
This class covers all 5 reasons for EMS documentation concentrating on Clinical, Legal and Financial. Reimbursement is the hot topic because without it, there is no mission. The documentation class identifies what Medicare is looking for and what should be in every report.
Learn about the current usage of designer drugs (Flakka, DMT, BZP, Bromo Dragonfly, Krokadil) and what signs and symptoms will present in your patients. Bonus: Hallucinogenic Plants will also be discussed and how easily they can be obtained.
Learn the current trends involving medications and everyday items that can be found in your cabinets, garage and refrigerators at home. Both kids and adults who use social media are becoming more familiar with these drugs which are everyday items. Find out what they are and what they can do.
Think you know about club drugs? Find out what is being used and the methods taken to obtain these drugs. Learn the signs and symptoms you may see in your patients.
National Registry Refresher
This course encompasses what is required by the national registry for recertification for EMR, EMT, AEMT and Paramedics. Unlike many refresher courses, this class uses new ideas and mnemonics to help medics in the field, as well as the book knowledge associated with other recertification classes. This course will provide new and easier ways to care for your patients and a better understanding of pathophysiology.
Prehospital Trauma Life Support
PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care.
AHA Basic Life Support
AHA’s BLS Course provides the foundation for saving lives after cardiac arrest. Updated to reflect new 2015 science, BLS teaches the concepts of high-quality CPR, improvement of chest compression fraction, and high-performing team dynamics.
AHA Advanced Cardiac Life Support
This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
AHA Pediatric Advanced Life Support
In the AHA’s advanced pediatric course, students learn how to use a systematic approach to quickly assess, identify the underlying cause, and treat pediatric patients in emergency situations. Students interact real pediatric patient cases, realistic simulations, and animations to assess and treat these pediatric patients.
Neonatal Resuscitation Program
The NRP® course conveys an evidence-based approach to care of the newborn at birth and facilitates effective team-based care for healthcare professionals who care for newborns at the time of delivery. NRP utilizes a blended learning approach, which includes online testing, online case-based simulations, and hands-on case-based simulation/debriefing that focus on critical leadership, communication, and team-work skills.
