Medical Considerations for Technical Rope Rescue

Course Summary

Rope rescue meets medical

This one day clinic was designed to bridge the gap between technical rope rescue and medical training. Too often teams separate their rope rescue and medical training and don’t get the chance to practice their patient care in a technical environment. This high level clinic will provide an opportunity to put these skills together during technical rope scenarios with simulated patients who require medical care. From harness trauma to hip injuries to hypothermia. This course is entirely field-based with no in-class delivery.

TESTIMONIALS

Brad Danielson
University of Alberta

Our instructor was excellent. He obviously knew the material inside-and-out, and could run the class as a set of discussions and ongoing hands-on examples, vs. running off a set of powerpoint slides. He's a breathing encyclopedia of Wilderness First Aid, with a lot of first-hand field experience. Raven Rescue and Wilderness Medical Associates has the "wilderness" perspective of First Aid training really dialed in. This did not feel like Standard FA with wilderness considerations thrown in as an add-on - these guys understand and take seriously the type of remote field work that we geo-scientist types do in places like the northern territories.
