Medical emergencies can, and do, happen at events! How well event professionals are prepared to handle them makes all the difference between a great event (with a successful outcome for the patient) or a disaster.

There's a lot to know. How do you approach and assess medical emergencies at events? How do you keep the event going at the same time? How do you make good decisions about patient care, and when do you need to call 911?

David Egan brings you his extensive background as a pre-hospital emergency medical technician, emergency medical services educator, and twenty years as owner and operator of his own event venue. He'll take you through everything you need to know, in this energetic and entertaining session you won't want to miss.
