This full-day course presented by Rocky Mountain Adventure Medicine Inc. takes a practical approach to managing emergencies in the back country - basically anywhere Norseman ski trips occur. It is a good program for people with no first aid/emergency response training, as well as for those who want to refresh skills they have learned previously. The course will cover basic theory for managing emergencies and providing first aid, in addition to the opportunity to practice skills through field scenarios in outdoor conditions. The key components covered are: Principles of extended care; assessment; airway and respiratory management; fracture care; wound management; spinal care; environmental emergencies; cold related emergencies; packaging and transportation; outdoor First Aid Kits. Participants will receive a course workbook and certificate outlining the course content. This is not a "recognized" first aid course, but is a practical application of first aid principles.
