    (A) Prehospital Ultrasound

    Kerry Ahrens, MD

    Ultrasound has always been a tool for use inside the hospital. With the advent of smaller units and reasonable pricing, is it time for ultrasound to be available in the pre-hospital arena? Learn about the ease of performing a FAST exam to find internal bleeding, and decide for yourself if ultrasound is a skill with a future in EMS.
    (B) State of the State (1 time only)

    Mark Mandler

    A 2020 update on what's new and what is coming down the pipe from the Wisconsin State EMS Office. Mark will present the updates and then open up the room for a question and answer session. Bring your questions for the State EMS office.
    (C) SVT vs. VTACH

    Sam Ireland

    From Facebook to Twitter, from the EMS room to the crews quarters, SVT with aberrancy vs. VTACH on a 12 lead is commonly debated! We will go through a highly sensitive and specific algorithm to determine the difference in-between these two rhythms. Not only is identifying important, but knowing how these rhythms make a difference in our treatment is equally important. This is an interactive class that dives into some very intricate details of the 12 lead - this is not an introduction to the ECG by any means.
