Guest Speaker

Dr. Michael Palma visited Responding to Medical Emergencies once again this year!  His talk focused on the importance of early recognition and intervention in cardiac and other medical emergencies.  He stressed the need for immediate CPR and the early use of an AED in all out of hospital cardiac arrest cases.    Dr. Palma gave the class firsthand knowledge of what actually happens when a cardiac arrest victim reaches the emergency department of the hospital.  Medical protocols such as intubation and induced hypothermia were discussed.
