Self Defense for Paramedics and First Responders
Paramedics face adverse clinical conditions in the field without any support, and often in underserved urban communities. They also work in confined spaces without any easy escape route, while in the back of an ambulance ("rig"). At the same time, they often try to provide care to undifferentiated, aggressive patients.
My Occupational Defense provides simulation training in similar settings, tailoring the curriculum to the concerns of First Responders. The training scenarios are actual clinical situations, i.e. IV placement, taking vitals signs, obtaining EKG’s, and during medication administration.
