First responders to civilian mass-casualty events (MCE) often face atypical circumstances that require care to be delivered in threatening, high stress and unfamiliar settings. This free webinar is designed for those who may provide prehospital care during a "high threat MCE." The webinar will provide a brief overview of the high threat MCE, the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) procedures that have evolved from current military prehospital combat casualty care best practices, and the strategies and guidelines for managing the victims of a civilian MCE while under the duress and dangers of a high threat environment. These include the prehospital emergency use of tourniquets, blood-clotting (hemostatic) gauze agents, airway and respiratory management, and more.

Q&A Session The following questions were asked by viewers during the webcast with answers provided by Tom Bouthillet. How does endo, myo or pericarditis make calling a true STEMI more difficult? It’s usually one or the other but not both. Typically myo/pericarditis will not have reciprocal changes. On those rare occasions where it does localize (which is controversial), it is indistinguishable from STEMI and should be treated as such. How can you tell if you are looking...
