Slide 5

Critical Thinking in EMS There is a requirement for field based EMS staff to think "fresh". Various claims started because of off base care of a patient. Decide most ideal approach to give quality care. SOP's can't cover each situation we may confront in the field Decision making is anticipated from us!

Slide 6

Critical Thinking in EMS We should acquire restorative data for every individual patient. At that point we need to choose what we believe is turning out badly with our patient. After that we think of an arrangement for treatment. At that point we assess the treatment; make adjustments as required. Basic, right???

Slide 7

SOP's They are just a single apparatus in our tool kit Each patient is distinctive & needs their own treatment arrange. SOP's ought not be our first choice, rather they ought to be our security net. We ought to utilize our paramedic preparing to make sense of what isn't right with our patient & how we will settle it as our first choice.

Slide 8

SOP's What if our arrangement is not secured under the SOP's? Therapeutic control! Restorative Control ought to be our second choice for settling on the choice.

Slide 9

Example… Patient data: 45 year old male, trouble breathing 124/78, P-90, R-28, SPO 2 - 96%, Temp-101 0 F Productive hack Diagnosis? Most likely pneumonia? Imagine a scenario in which understanding breathing deteriorates. Would you give him oxygen? Would you need to put him on CPAP? Nebulizer treatment?

Slide 10

Making the correct decision Oxygen is a given for any breathing issues, so there is no issue putting them on a NRB cover Have we at any point been instructed to utilize CPAP on a pneumonia quiet… not so much So, we contact Medical Control, give report and inquire as to whether we can utilize CPAP with this patient. In the event that Medical Control gives consent, then we are ready If we can't achieve Medical Control, we return to our SOP's There is no SOP for Pneumonia, so we would not be permitted to utilize CPAP without a request

Slide 11

BREAK OUT SESSION Break up into gatherings and survey case #1 Details in freebee Have one part take notes and be set up to show your responses to the accompanying: What isn't right with the patient? What treatment plan would you have? How might you offer answer to clinic? Which SOP would cover this patient?

Slide 12

Case #1 - Schulman v. Region of Los Angeles 22 y/o female understudy had 1 mixed refreshment with supper and returned home 2100 2210 out once more (Karaoke bar) and had 1 brew 2230 sang a tune and not long after had indications: Excruciatingly sharp torment close left ear Dizziness deteriorating Began to bumble Became intensely bewildered Holding head in torment Began regurgitating Speech now confused Patient broken down

Slide 13

Case #1 - Biased Decision Making The patient in the event that survey #1 experienced a cerebral drain. A three hour delay in determination in the ED because of the one-sided basic leadership by the paramedics Schulman v. Area of Los Angeles Fire Department (February 7, 2006). Note: Full points of interest of case in gift

Slide 14

Biased Decision Making It is imperative to assess every patient in light of the individual call, not earlier calls. Has anybody had a "ceaseless guest"? After for a moment, did the care gave diminish in quality? This is the call where we recoil when the tones go out. We as a whole perceive the address. This is likewise the call that we cause harm with when the patient has a real issue and we miss it because of messy pharmaceutical & one-sided contemplations.

Slide 15

Biased documentation Think about what you compose! Envision sitting on the testimony box disclosing to the court what PITA remains for! On the off chance that you are required a patient with trunk torment and don't treat the patient's trunk torment, have you truly done your occupation? Will you treat a patient after two distinct conventions?

Slide 16

Minimizing Bias in Assessment Most mistakes in EMS are created by slipshod appraisals. Alternate ways on vitals Incomplete evaluation Not acquiring the greater part of the restorative history Incomplete solution survey (what are the meds for?) Not completely uncovering quiet

Slide 17

Minimizing Bias in Assessment Remove one-sided emotions and treat all patients the same. After 9/11 did Muslim patients get a similar nature of care? Does a minority on welfare get regarded the same as the neighborhood chose official? Basically be decent to everybody!

Slide 18

It's not all your blame!!! EMS has concentrated on SOP preparing, retention of calculations and refresher training. What great is a memory helper if everybody recollects the letters, however not what they remain for? It is your obligation to take in a couple of new EMS things all alone.

Slide 19

Learning Critical Thinking Skills Think autonomously Police land at MVC with a "plastered" But, this patient looks pale. Most "drunks" you've seen have a flushed face. Tolerant glucose, when checked, was 19. Be receptive! Not all things are as it appears. Be fearless Be a promoter for your patient Stand up for what is correct

Slide 20

Learning Critical Thinking Skills Study missteps of others Review great calls of others Critique your calls, documentation and execution Did you give the best treatment to your patient? Would you be able to have enhanced your execution on the call? What might you be able to do diverse?

Slide 21

Communication Issues Tenerife airplane terminal catastrophe The impact occurred on March 27, 1977, at 17:06:56 neighborhood time. The flying machine were working as Pan Am Flight and KLM Flight 4805. Taking off in substantial haze on the airplane terminal's just runway, the KLM flight collided with the highest point of the Pan Am flying machine back navigating the other way. The Pan Am had taken after the back navigating of the KLM air ship, under the heading of Air Traffic Control, and the KLM's flight group had known about Pan Am back maneuvering behind them on a similar runway. In spite of absence of visual affirmation (as a result of the haze) the KLM chief imagined that Pan Am had cleared the runway thus endeavored to take off without further freedom to do as such.

Slide 22

Communications Issues Immediately in the wake of arranging, the KLM commander propelled the throttles (a standard method known as "spin-up", to confirm that the motors are working legitimately for departure) and the co-pilot , amazed by the move, immediately exhorted the skipper that leeway had not yet been given. The Captain reacted, "I realize that. Proceed, inquire." . The co-pilot then radioed the tower that they were "ready for takeoff" and "waiting for our clearance". The KLM team then got a freedom which determined the course that the air ship was to trail departure. The directions utilized the word "takeoff", however did exclude an unequivocal articulation that they were approved for departure.

Slide 23

Communications Issues The co-pilot read the flight freedom back to the controller, finishing the read back with the announcement "we're presently at takeoff" or "we're currently, uh, taking off" (the correct wording of his announcement was not clear, showing to the controller that they were starting their departure roll). The Captain intruded on the co-pilot's perused back with the remark "We're going"

Slide 24

Communications Issues The Spanish controller, who couldn't see the runway because of the haze, at first reacted with "OK" (wording which is nonstandard), which fortified the KLM chief's confusion that they had departure leeway. The controller's reaction of "OK" to the co-pilot's nonstandard explanation that they were "now at takeoff" was likely because of his confusion that they were in departure position and prepared to start the roll when departure freedom was gotten, yet not very the way toward taking off. The controller then promptly included "Stand by for departure, I will call you", demonstrating that he had not expected the leeway to be deciphered as a departure freedom. He likely had not heard the skipper's declaration that they were "going", since the commander had said this to his kindred group individuals and not transmitted it on the radio himself.

Slide 25

Communications Issues However, a synchronous radio call from the Pan Am team created shared impedance on the radio recurrence, which was perceptible in the KLM cockpit as a shrieking sound. This made the pivotal last segment of the tower's reaction capable of being heard just with trouble by the KLM team. The Pan Am team's transmission, which was additionally basic, was detailing that "We're as yet navigating down the runway!" This message was likewise obstructed by the impedance and quiet to the KLM group. Either message, if heard in the KLM cockpit, would have given the KLM team time to prematurely end its second departure endeavor.

Miscommunication in EMS? Correspondence between ECRN & Paramedics Did we paint a decent pi
