Shock and Shocking!
Shock and AICD’s are common in EMS, drawing on these two patient populations this course reviews both. Shock can be a component of both traumatic and medical illnesses and its presentation can be dramatic or quite subtle.
In this course, we will explore the pathophysiology of shock on a cellular level, followed by signs and symptoms of shock. In the second part of this course we will review AICD’s through a case study, including management of cardiac arrest patients with an AICD.
