This special workshop will also introduce you to the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) which can help make important choices and enable personnel to get to the appropriate response faster and be more accurate in their diagnosis, since the AI can find causality where humans cannot; seamlessly validating information in the background as every call develops.

Futuristic applications such as the resupply of EMS units or delivery of essential supplies to firefighters and law enforcement officers under adverse conditions via drones, and other applications, will also be discussed.

Andreas Claesson, Ph D, RN, EMT-P, will present his award-winning work in the research and development of UAV use to deliver drones in Sweden to facilitate early defibrillation in out-of-hospital-cardiac-arrest (OHCA).

Hands on Demonstrations: Douglas Spotted Eagle and Andreas Claesson will introduce attendees to state-of-the-art Unmanned Aerial Vehicles currently available and show how easily and effectively they can be utilized by public safety personnel. In fact, the rural, remote or "wilderness" incidents are big magnifiers of small problems.

Rescuers and EMS responders need to think differently in these environments!

The environment, response distance and ability to carry everything needed at these incidents means a different approach is needed.

Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast or a provider who occasionally faces prolonged care situations, your understanding of the concepts of Wilderness Medicine are essential. 19 Off-site Workshop // Location: MEDIC Facility NREMT: Other Continuing Education, NEMSMA Instructors: Amar Patel, DHSc, MS, NRP, Director, Center for Innovative Learning Wake Med Health Andrew E.
