K9 First Responder / Paramedic + Tactical

September 21 @ 8:00 am - September 23 @ 5:00 pm PDT

$895

The Challenge …for K9 Handlers

• Are you a K9 Handler looking to provide the best emergency field care for your 4 legged partner?
• Are you looking for strategies on how to better listen to and support your K9s ongoing needs throughout your training, mission and down times? For example can you tell when your K9 is thirsty and how to encourage them to drink more?
• Are you concerned that your veterinary training is clinic-based, not field-ready, and doesn’t address the realities of your most common scenarios?

The Challenge …for TEMS

• Are you part of a TEMS team tasked with supporting the entire SWAT team, but unsure how best to care for the 4-legged members of your team?
• Are you concerned that your veterinary training is clinic-based, not tactically sound, and doesn’t address the realities of your most common scenarios?
• Did you know there are formal (K9-TECC and Canine-TCCC) guidelines?
• Are you looking for ways to increase your scope of practice with advanced techniques, invasive procedures and a whole new species?
• Need a few more CE credits for that upcoming renewal?

The Challenge …for EMS

• Are you part of a EMS team tasked with supporting local Working K9s, but unsure how best to care for the 4-legged members of your extended team?
• Are you concerned that your veterinary training is clinic-based, not field-ready, and doesn’t address the realities of your most common scenarios?
• Are you looking for ways to increase your scope of practice with advanced techniques and a whole new species?
• Need a few more CE credits for that upcoming renewal?

 

The program includes handling K9 emergencies in both conventional and tactical environments, so you’ll be prepared to respond wherever and whenever you need to. Topics range from safe K9 handling and comprehensive assessments to treating the most common emergencies such as heat stroke and bloat/GDV, as well as tactical injuries such as gunshot wounds. Advanced Paramedicine skills include IO fluid admin and surgical airways.

Skill stations  focus on a particular field skill and ensure that each student has accurate muscle memory to ensure skillful delivery long after the class is complete. Primary interventions are repeated until students can do them, literally, blindfolded. Each station is designed to build on existing knowledge and translation of human medical skills to the canine anatomy. Assessment skills are on live dogs and go beyond basic vitals and teach students how to conduct ongoing observations and trending through typical work cycles to identify and prevent injuries and illness early in development. Handling includes basic carries and constraints and can include advanced handling such as harness lifts and extractions.

Solo and Team Scenarios then put these skillsets into the likely field environment and require the student to put together an entire treatment sequence, problem solving the situation as they go. Scenarios are based on the skillset, equipment and mission profile of each team. For example GSWs, IEDs or collapsed building compression injuries may be included depending on the mission profile.

+ Tactical

This add-on curriculum component takes the skills learned in the above levels and puts them into the Tactical context following MMMARCHHH principles. K9 MEDIC™ has been teaching this K9 TEMS component for more than a decade and stays current with the recent K9-TECC guidelines, as well as the former (no longer maintained) Canine-TCCC guidelines.

 

Hybrid Program for Different Scopes of Practice

We’ve been working with handlers and medics for 15yrs  and, with extensive experience and the review of many different integration methods, have created ways to make a mixed program level course very successful. When students register we will gather exist levels of human/veterinary medical skills.  Students with similar skills levels are placed together in the same groups for skills rotations.  During scenarios the different groups are distributed so that Handlers and Medics work side-by-side, just like the real world.

High Def / Intensive Program Format

This format of training features the ultra realistic training for maximum learning, outcomes and and confidence.  This includes ethically sourced canine cadaver lab stations where we recreate conditions such as Bloat/GDV and Tension Pneumothorax. We also include advanced K9 mannikans and environmental simulations.

EMS Continuing Education Credit

We are pleased to confirm that this program offerings 24hrs of EMS CE training from the state of Nevada.  If RACE accreditation is important to you, please contact us in advance as it may also be available.
