What does the emergency provider need to know when providing care in the wilderness? During this fast-paced, information packed session, this panel of experts will each spend a few minutes (in Pecha Kucha fashion) sharing many pearls from the field about hot topics in wilderness medicine such as cold illnesses, heat illnesses, altitude illness, submersion injuries, avalanche injuries, and wilderness improvisation. The group will then be available to answer your questions, debate, and/or share additional pointers with the group.
