Remember 2 Things

Perfect for a quick refresher training with your team, these short videos will give you two key practices that will help you be more effective when it counts.

Course Name Course Description Length
Remember 2 Things: Being a Better Compressor We have learned from decades of cardiac arrest data that there is no clinical priority in cardiac arrest that supersedes high quality, uninterrupted chest compressions. Good technique, good hand position and proper rate are essential as a compressor, but there are a few more things you can do that can be helpful for the whole team. This course will provide the learner with a few additional techniques to aid in becoming a better compressor, and what to prioritize when practicing compressions. 10m

Remember 2 Things: Defibrillation With Less Hands Off The Chest Time One of the best things about pit crew CPR is that it’s proven to improve survival without anything more than refining our current practices to focus on the most important aspects of cardiac arrest care. There are two mistakes we consistently make when using a manual defibrillator that can both cause significant delays in compressions. Uninterrupted high-quality compressions are the cornerstone of a successful resuscitation and anything we can do to reduce pauses in compressions is going to benefit the patient. This course will provide you with ways to prioritize CPR, with less hands off the chest time, while using a manual defibrillator. 10m

In this course, we’ll discuss some preemptive techniques to ensure the safety of you and other drivers while passing through an intersection. 10m
Remember 2 Things: EVOC Common Mistakes Driving a vehicle emergent is one of the single most dangerous things you do as a part of emergency services. And, if you work in a 911 system, you’re likely to be doing it every single day. 68% of emergency vehicle accidents happen with the sirens and lights operating, which is why it is critical that you know how to drive safely during an emergent situation. In this course, we’ll discuss some common mistakes made during emergency vehicle operations, and how you can ensure that those mistakes are avoided. 10m

Remember 2 Things: Pit Crew Techniques – Defib Pads Pit crew CPR has dramatic and measurable effects on patient outcomes. Simply learning how to run a cardiac arrest with maximum efficiency has been proven to save lives. In the past, placing defibrillation pads on the patient’s chest was seen as an acceptable delay in compressions. Now we’re realizing that absolutely nothing should delay or interrupt compressions unnecessarily. In this course, the learner will observe new techniques to get defibrillator pads on the patient’s chest faster and better than before. 10m
Remember 2 Things: Pit Crew Techniques – Not Pausing Compressions Sometimes when we talk about pit crew CPR techniques and reducing interruptions in compressions we get focused on how we can refine our technique with a manual defibrillator to reduce that hands-off-the-chest time, but we don’t always consider our EMT providers who may be using an AED. Some may believe that AEDS need a lot of time to analyze and shock, and that there’s really nothing we can do but sit there and watch. There are actually two periods when you can continue CPR while using an AED that we don’t always take advantage of. This course will provide you with some common delays in compressions while using an AED, and give you the techniques to avoid them. 10m

Remember 2 Things: Radio Communications 3 Some folks are just known for having poor radio etiquette. They crash the channel in the middle of other traffic, they key up accidentally and they can never seem to get a clean signal and have to repeat themselves over and over. In this lesson, we will teach you two ways to make sure you are not that person. 10m
Remember 2 Things: Reducing Hands Off The Chest Time The goal of pit crew CPR is to teach providers to focus on what’s most important and refine their current techniques. As our cardiac arrest management has shifted to continuous high-quality compressions, we’ve also shifted our focus to changing out the compressor more often. We now know that even our strongest, fittest providers begin to lose form after 200 compressions and by 300 compressions our effectiveness at chest compressions have dropped significantly. Compressors need to switch about every two minutes or 200 compressions. With that, there is potential for time delays in compressions. This course will provide the learner with some techniques to avoid those delays when switching compressors. 10m
