Saturday General Session  

8:00-9:00 Pediatric Out-of-hospital Cardiac Arrest -SunHee Chung 

Dr Chung returns to the Oregon EMS Conference with an update on the current state of pediatric  out-of-hospital cardiac arrest resuscitation. She will review the differences in airway and  ventilation strategies between adult and pediatric patients while reviewing the physiology behind  neonatal and pediatric resuscitation. This is sure to be an informative presentation for all levels  of providers.  

9:10-10:00 My Tummy Hurts- Scott Edinger 

My Tummy Hurts takes a deeper look into some potential life-threatening metabolic emergencies  a patient may suffer when a tummy ache is not just a tummy ache.  

9:10-10:00 Community Paramedicine and Mobile Integrated Health -  Instructor TBD 

What if we can do hospital-at-home care or emergency medicine-at-home care? What would that  look like? What are the benefits? How could it benefit patients, hospital systems and staffing,  and EMS systems? 

10:15-11:15 A Cardiac Event from a Paramedic Patients Perspective- Robert Victorino

In this presentation, Robert will give a firsthand view of a cardiac event as the patient, from mild  chest pain through angioplasty. This “behind the scenes” perspective will share the patient’s  first-hand account with a provider’s perspective. This is a rare presentation to attend. 

10:15-11:15 Eye Trauma ETC John Willer 

Eyes, we use them all the time, but how often do we treat injuries to them? Learn to evaluate  and treat eye trauma and ocular emergencies. Also, an overview of common Ocular conditions  and what you as a field provider can do.  

11:15-12:30 LUNCH & Check Out

12:30-2:30 EMS 20/20 Podcast – LIVE & IN PERSON Spencer Oliver and Chris Pfingsten 

Are you ready? Join us on Saturday. Spencer and Chris, the voices (and faces) behind the  podcast EMS 20/20, will not only educate you but also have fun doing it.  

They will be live streaming their Podcast from the conference and taking live calls from around  the globe and the audience. If you think you have an unusual call, now might be the opportunity  to share it and get some sage feedback. This is sure to be a fun, lively, interactive session you  don’t want to miss.  

2:40-3:40 You Have Been Subpoenaed – The Importance of Documentation  Dawn Potter,  

 Dawn will give you food for thought about why documentation can make or break you in a court  of law. Lawsuits happen due to poor patient care and, more importantly, poor documentation.  What you put or don't put in your chart can be helpful or harmful. She will also discuss working  outside the EMS venue as a medic and what that means.  

2:40-3:40 Basic Pharmacology, Nancy Shantel  

Let's discuss pharmacology! We'll discuss the medications that BLS providers can administer  and assist with and should be familiar with in assisting ALS providers. We'll go beyond knowing  the protocol and discuss how medications work and why indications and contraindications  matter.  

3:45-5:00 Patient Packaging Nancy Shantel  

We've come far from "backboarding" every patient! We'll discuss packaging patients, why  considering mechanism matters, and the different tools and options to provide the most  appropriate care for our injured patients.  

3:45-5:00 BLS Saves Lives summary Scott Edinger 

BLS Saves Lives empowers first responders, letting them know that their actions prior to  paramedic arrival are crucial to a positive patient outcome.
