At-risk populations covers geriatric emergencies for the EMT and paramedic. Getting older can seem daunting—greying hair, wrinkles, forgetting where you parked the car. All jokes aside, aging can bring about unique health issues for this patient population. With seniors accounting for 12 percent of the world’s population–and rapidly increasing to over 22 percent by 2050–it’s important to understand the challenges faced by people as they age, and recognize that there are preventive measures that you, as an emergency responder can assist the patient and or their family with to help mitigate any further injury/illness to the patient.
This live online virtual instructor-led module will be discussed geriatric illness/injury for this patient population.
This VILT session is for the BLS & ALS Provider.
