Featured Monthly CE Series for EMS
This webinar, the latest in a monthly series, will feature instructor Michael Fraley, a rescue diver, SCUBA instructor and paramedic. Fraley’s presentation will review the gas laws that impact diving, explore the pathophysiology of common diving medical emergencies, and explain prehospital treatments. Once the serious stuff is over, cool scuba diving products will be reviewed for your pleasure. Registration is open now.
“Diving emergencies aren’t limited only to diving destinations—they can also happen when divers return home. That means EMTs and paramedics everywhere need to be prepared to recognize and handle them,” said Greg Friese, CentreLearn’s director of education.
